I have been to Colorado quite a few times, but never in the summertime.  We went in the middle of July to see some nice mountains
    and also to cool down.  It was 103 degrees in Dallas when we left.  Felicia, Kendra and I flew to Denver and drove up to Estes Park,
    which took about 2 hours.

    Felicia found us another great cabin using the VRBO web site.  We have had good luck using that several times now.  The cabin
    was in the town of Estes Park and had a river running through the back yard.  The river was the Big Thompson River and it was ice cold.
