Love transforms the everyday into the extraordinary, so what would it do in the face of the awe-inspiring? Find out in Colorado’s Gunnison National Forest, which protects 1.6 million acres of land that includes mountains, lakes, rivers, and valleys. Among the sites to see, the Black Canyons are composed of rocks that contain silica, which sparkle like diamonds when the sun hits them. Rougher roads into the forest may require four-wheel drive, but the trek is worth it for anyone who loves the outdoors. There are plenty of short hikes as well as longer trails that open out onto beautiful vistas. The forest is thick with evergreens and the mountains are excellent for hiking and biking, as well as rock climbing. Gunnison National Forest is well worth a visit in any season and we have you covered with a list of romantic accommodations for all weather. Cast your rose colored glasses on Colorado’s natural splendor from the deck of a luxury yurt or the fireside of a lakeside cabin.
