Sightseeing

(Actually Bison) 5 mins from the Carriage House and one exit to the west on I-70 (One of the greatest panorama of snow capped mountains at this exit). Great to see the great American buffalo. There is a nice, paved walking path that runs along the south side for an easy hike. All of this is free.

The famous Coors brewery. 15 mins from the Carriage House. You get three 8 oz beers for the $5 admission. If returning (and skipping the long tour), say "Coors Lab" (Mines student) to skip the line and go to the tasting room.

Drive to the top (almost) Mt. Evans and conquer a 14er. Great for the views and for those not accustom to Colorado's altitude (Beware altitude sickness and drink plenty of water; even sitting in the car you can get sick). Have a confident driver (Or for about $20 there are often college students making their summer money that will drive you down). 1 hour 30 mins from the Carriage House
