When Karen and I first started discussing moving to Colorado, one of the stipulations was that we would get out as often as possible to really SEE Colorado and have some fun adventures. To make this happen we purchased a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer 4×4 and set out to plan our first trips. For our first adventure I decided on Mt. Evans, outside of Idaho Springs. First off, it was pretty close, just shy of two hours away. This would tell us if the Trailblazer was up for it and would show how the dogs would behave. Fortunately, they all did well and we had a great time.
