Colorado is packed full of things to do year-round such as Dinosaur Resource Center or explore Mesa Verde, visit Great Sand Dunes National Park or hop on the trail anywhere in the 500 miles connecting Denver to Durango. You'll see lakes, wildlife and different ecosystems. You can step back in time and ride one of the state's refurbished rail lines. The coal-fired engines pull refurbished cars through canyons and wilderness along the same tracks once traveled by cowboys and miners.
