Dinosaur National Monument:

There is more to Dinosaur National Monument than just dinosaurs. The 210,000 acres within the park will grab your attention with its beauty, rugged wildness, solitude, and silence. This is a place to relax and reflect, or hike, drive, and boat through the diverse landscapes. This is home and critical habitat for the endangered peregrine falcon, bald eagle, Colorado pikeminnow, and razorback sucker. Indian rock art in Echo Park testifies to the allure these canyons and rivers had for prehistoric people. Click this link to learn more about Dinosaur National Park 

Steamboat Springs:

Steamboat Springs, Colorado is known worldwide as "Ski Town USA."   A ski town that is also an authentic ranching center, Steamboat Springs is more down home than glitzy. Cowboy hats and ski boots are equally welcome on the city's friendly streets. The place where downhill skiing first flourished in the United States, Steamboat Ski Resort  remains a premiere slopes destination. But the town also offers outdoor recreation of every stripe and season. And after a long day hiking, skiing or shopping, you can relax in one of the natural hot springs for which the town was named.
