    Good Colorado Camping For Beginners? Hello! I’m looking to go camping with my boyfriend’s family in July. Any campground suggestions?

    For the most part, we’re beginners. I’ve personally only gone camping in tents once, but have been cabin “camping” very often. I think only 1 person in his family has been camping: his mother, who was raised on a farm.

    We’re near Colorado Springs and, since we’re beginners, don’t want to drive too far. Maybe some place near Bailey, which is only about 1.5 hours away.

    We’d like a water source so we may fish and canoe.
    We’d also enjoy hiking trails.
    Maybe something with a canoe/bike/paddle boat rental shop? 🙂
    We wouldn’t mind being around other sets of campers.

    Yes, we’re n00bs. Just looking for a family-friendly place to camp.

    Please and thank you!

    4th Of July Fireworks In Colorado – Dumb And Dumber? As might be expected, many Colorado towns cancelled their municipal 4th of July fireworks, including Boulder, Castle Rock and Colorado Springs. With evacuations across the Front Range in effect, and tens of thousands of people out of their homes, my question seems valid and appropos.

    As for resources, I know that the city already purchased this year’s fireworks. To me, that doesn’t seem to be the issue. Fireworks keep for a number of years in storage so the expense would not be wasted.

    Are bread and circuses really the priority? Do we really need to shoot them off for residents to oooh and ahhh when 15 miles to the south and 35 miles to the north Boulder and Fort Collins sit in darkness and ash? If there is a right time for restraint and respect, this seems to be it, but my city seems to think differently. To me, it seems to flaunt our luck of escaping this tragedy when so many of our neighbor cities are in distress. What am I missing here?

    Before I go to my councilperson with this, what are your thoughts? Here is the link of the current planned and cancelled Colorado fireworks: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/13525136/detail.html
    Or are they consciously thinking, “Gee, we dodged THAT bullet, let’s celebrate!”?

    What If Colorado State Burns Completely? I left my husband 2 months ago to be in Missouri with my immediate family before these wildfires even started and now I’m freaking out. We live in the southern Colorado Springs area. What if they can’t contain these wildfires? It’s devistating hearing about it. Hundreds of homes have burned already, businesses, everything. My husband hasn’t even been able to go into work because it’s too close to the fires. I’m trying not to stress out too much because I’m pretty far into this pregnancy and I don’t want stress to send me into early labor. But what if my house burns down?! What if they can’t contain it any further and just let it burn naturally? What if the whole state burns? Opinions, thoughts?
