For quiet and solitude in the fall and winter months, wind your way to Carbon County, Wyoming. There is so much to keep you busy if you’d like, as well as plenty of options for relaxation and rejuvenation.
These six southern Arizona state parks are just a few of many, and they’re all connected by legacy, legend, lore, and the great outdoors. We are highlighting these parks because they all are close to large communities, where you can pick up wifi and coffee for classes, client calls, and projects before and after escaping to the parks.
Throw the skis on the car and bundle up for a weekend—or a whole week—of nonstop fun. There’s plenty of room in South Lake Tahoe for the whole family this season.
There are two major qualities of Cowboy Country that stick out to us most. First, no matter the size of the town or what you think you see from the highway, there’s always a myriad of dirt roads that will take you into country you didn’t think could be there. Second, many of the locals you’ll meet have families who have been in the area for over a hundred years.
It’s about leaving these places we visit better for the travelers who come tomorrow, next week, next year, and in the centuries to come. As I reflected on my own behaviors in the outdoors, I thought about the ways my family also reduces their impact.

Coloradoans like myself are seeking the outdoors more than ever. An unprecedented number of people are playing outside, occupying trails, and seeking fresh air. Though I have always considered myself sociable and courteous on trails, having to step off constantly and let others pass by while friendly trail banter is murmured under face coverings is somewhat tiring.

Just over the Colorado border, Carbon County, Wyoming has all the travel amenities one could need, plus a vast outdoor landscape to explore.
