Colorado Recreation Description. Nike Footwear
There are numerous and varied recreation opportunities throughout Colorado. Cross-country skiers and snowshoers enjoy the solitude of snow shrouded pine forests and can make use of several huts systems for backcountry adventuring. Snowmobilers ply what are four-wheel drive roads in the summer, often with a skier or two in tow. Crisp white snow contrasts with deep blue skies to create the perfect winter playground.

With the warming of Spring comes the annual run-off. Rivers and streams swell as the melting snow begins its journey to the oceans. White water rafters and kayakers brave tumultuous rapids while the less adventurous enjoy more placid river sections.

Along the river bottoms maturing nymphs emerge from between the rocks and begin their perilous journey to adulthood. As they float to the surface to shed there shells and release their wings, they are targeted by ravenous trout. Fly fisherman take advantage of this annual ritual to try to outsmart the wary trout with their artificial flies. Colorado rivers possess gold medal waters sporting large trout that really give a good fight.

As the mountain peaks reluctantly give up their covering of snow, an alpine wonderland emerges. Hikers, horseback riders, campers, mountain bikers and mountaineers head to remote sections of the state to enjoy stunning vistas as they practice their sport. Families pile into cars and campers to experience Colorado's scenic byways which cross 12,000 foot mountain passes and even reach the tops of 14,000 foot peaks. Abundant wildflowers and wildlife provides hours of entertainment for all.

With the coming of fall, the Aspen trees turn to pure gold. Hunters take to the countryside in search of elk, deer and other game. It is time for one last hike or bike ride before the coming snows.
