Z For Zapata Falls #A2ZChallenge

#Day 26 and the last day of A2Z Blogging Challenge where I am posting some best places to visit in Colorado.

Z For Zapata Falls


Zapata Falls is a 30-feet waterfall located in San Luis Valley near Mosca in Alamosa County. This is an easy 0.9-mile hike.

In Summer, it is a wonderful hike nearby Great Sand dunes. Whereas in Winter, it freezes completely to a giant Ice sculpture.

Many feel that the drive to the falls is awful even though the hike is easy. It is a dirt road and so, it is better to go by a 4wd with high clearance vehicle. 

If you visit Great Sand Dunes in Summer, don't forget to add this to your itinerary. 

Until next time,

X For X Games in Aspen #A2ZChallenge

#Day 24 of A2Z Blogging Challenge where I am posting some best places to visit in Colorado.

X For X Games in Aspen


I might have cheated a bit for X, but there is a reason for that. There is only one town in Colorado starting with X - Xenia in Washington county near Evergreen.

But, since this challenge is about the good places to visit in Colorado,  I cannot ignore the fact that X Games, one of the world's best action sports games are held in Aspen Annually.
