to take the kids camping.

The nights are getting longer, the days are crisp and gold tinges the light. Frost sparkles on the grass in the morning and adds a shivery dance to getting up. Fall is here, and this may be one of the best times to go camping in Colorado.

Labor Day weekend is a last hurrah for most campgrounds in Colorado. After that, campsites empty and reservations are relatively easy to get, even at the last minute.

Sure, it is colder, especially at night, but the weather is much more stable in the fall, with endless sapphire skies by day, and star strewn heavens by night. Never has a campfire felt so cozy. 

So pack up the car, add extra hot chocolate and fuzzy blankets, hats, mittens, and cuddly coats, and head out to enjoy Colorado at her finest.
