Horseback ride, fish, mountain bike, cross country ski or meander on foot through grand aspen groves and lodge pole pine forests. Rest on a sun-baked rock and listen to the rush of the river, the song of the mountain finch or the bugle of a bull elk. Watch the sun slip behind the mountains making way for the brilliant glory of the starlit sky.
