A Three-Hour Tour - My Various Adventures Around Nederland, Colorado
4x4 road to Kingston Peak. Colorado.
A variety of 4-wheeling and hiking adventures that I've completed in a 3-hour round trip from my home in Nederland. I am so fond of international travel, but my own area is rife with historical remnants from our mining history and completely surrounded in beautiful Rocky Mountain landscape ... if I were visiting Colorado from a foreign country, I would surely put this area on my itinerary. And I'm lucky enough to have it in my own backyard.
