Fishing with kids in the Rocky Mountains is fun!

I would suggest you get your family out to have some fun in the Rocky Mountains before winter comes.  This is just what everyone needs to get your minds off the US presidential election.

This election cycle has been absolutely crazy and overwhelming in all respects.  It is easy to get completely bombarded by it and lose your sense of perspective.  Please remember that the natural world is still moving on and doing its thing as if the election never happened.  Here are a bunch of fun things that you can do to get past the election and return to family fun in the Rocky Mountains.

I know that it is getting late in the year, but you can still get out and do a lot of stuff in the Rocky Mountains with your family.  Just keep in mind the time of year and that areas higher up in the mountains may be much colder than where you live.  Here are some good tips for fall hiking that can be applied to any outdoor fun in the fall.

Camping Fun In The Rocky Mountains

I love to go camping, and this time of year can be a bit cold at night but is magical.  There are not as many bugs or people in the mountains in the fall.  You just have to be careful that it is not too cold or snows on you.

Here are some great car camping spots in Utah.
