Denver was great, but we wanted to see what else Colorado had to offer — fortunately, we didn’t have to drive too far! Along with some long-time friends we have who live in Denver, we headed out west on the Interstate just past Vail to spend some time in nature. After making a pit stop at a local brewery, we drove on some narrow, not so well maintained roads within the White River National Forest filled with potholes and roaming cattle! Following a few adventurous miles of careful driving, we arrived at the rustic, peaceful Piney Guard cabin—an old ranger cabin that you can now rent! What a beautiful, restful place!
