Hiking the Rocky Mountains!

Hiking is, I would say, one of the central activities of life in the Rockies. And it doesn't stop in winter. The seasons here are less distinct, I'd say, than the drastic changes that happen in coastal areas. It's not a cold experience like some would imagine; just bring snowshoes and maybe crampons! And since we live in a part of the country that is just amazingly beautiful, there is a lot of awesome mountain wilderness to explore.
