Road Adventures to Cure Your Winter Cabin Fever

Posted on: February 24th, 2012 by Accurate Auto Body Repair No Comments

This February, Colorado has received record amounts of snow. Punxsutawney Phil emerged on February 2nd to let us know we have 6 more weeks of winter to endure.  Aw, come on Phil when haven’t you seen your shadow?

The holidays have come and gone and it seems this time of year lingers and gives way cabin fever.  The sun has tormented us with brief periods of high 40’s to low 50’s, robins are everywhere you look.  Are they confused?  Did they not get Phil’s message?

Here are a few suggestions to break out of the snow shoveling, and de-icing and spend some time with the family enjoying the surrounding areas.

Pack up the family and the car and head west on US 6 toward Golden for a drive through Clear Creek Canyon.  The winter views are incredible, frozen small waterfalls cascading down the mountainside, snowcapped trees and rocks lining the creek as it winds through the canyon.  The nighttime views of the city skyline are breathtaking and relaxing.  Grab a thermos full of Cocoa, some snacks, and enjoy the sights and the conversation.  It is a great way to spend some quality time connecting with family.

While you’re in the area check out what’s a happening in Golden through the end of February including the Buffalo Bill Birthday celebration on February 26th.  The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave will be having a party for Bill with cake at 12:00 pm and it’s a free day at the museum.  Go to click on events and exhibits then click on special events for details.

Winter Sledding in Colorado

Sledding in Colorado Winter is finally in full force, and it’s time to don our mittens, hats, and boots and go sledding! Sledding is a favorite past-time of many in Colorado, and provides fun for the entire family – children, teens, and parents alike! What better way to enjoy our beautiful outdoor terrain than by flying down a mountain in a tube!?

These days, you don’t even have to partake in the dreaded walk back up to the top of the hill! Load up the kids in the car and hit any number of ski resorts. For a fee (or sometimes free!), you can purchase a block of time to have a free-for-all fun ride down the mountain, and many even have ramps to bring you back to the top!

Here are a few of the many great places in Colorado for sledding and tubing:
