Taking the Kids — and exploring Colorado in summer?
It’s more than 90 degrees and I’m planting spinach … on vacation … in high altitude.
And I’m smiling doing it. That’s because I’m taking direction from my 21-year-old daughter Melanie, who has been helping to oversee the Colorado College student farm this summer in Colorado Springs. There’s something special about following your kids’ passions on vacation, whether they’re four, 14 or 21. We’re going to follow Mel’s passions our entire week in Colorado, hiking, biking and fly fishing together in Crested Butte (http://www.visitcrestedbutte.com) and Aspen (http://www.aspenchamber.org), even riding coasters at Elitch Gardens (http://www.elitchgardens.com), the “urban” theme and water park in Denver.
I’m glad my daughter is still willing to spend some of her precious vacation with us. (More about our other Colorado adventures in future columns and my trip diaries (http://www.takingthekids.com/travel-diary/.)… read more
