We just couldn’t see ourselves riding around in a Pink Jeep. Safari Tours fit the bill. Our driver Mike, who we have decided to refer to as Cowboy Mike, entertained us with Cowboy Stories during the ride out of town and while returning. Mike said that a Cowboy story as three elements: 1) some of it is true, 2) the outcome is good and 3) it always ends with – “and that’s a true story”.
The scenery was fantastic – especially since we had elected to take the sunset tour. This meant that the setting sun was at just the right angle to make the Red Rocks glow. There was also a sufficient amount of backcountry driving along rough roads and some places where there were not any roads.
