Pike’s Peak Literally Takes Your Breath Away

Pikes Peak Highway

The drive to Pike’s Peak is not free ($15 adults, $5 kids) and is not for the faint of heart. There are lots of scenic stops along the way with breathtaking views. When we went the actual peak area was being renovated so a shuttle bus ran from about a mile down the road. Usually dogs are not allowed on the shuttle but the guy at the gate said they were making exceptions. However, the line was too long so we decided to take a short hike to get basically the same view. We were cognizant if the high altitude and how it could affect our pup, so he walked a little and we carried him a little. The views are stunning, and the drive up (and down) and a little white-knuckle at times. Make sure to have at least half a tank of gas, plenty of water, and a sweater, as the temperature is a good 25F or more cooler than at the bottom (and it’s pretty windy)!

Nice short ‘hike’ with stunning views

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

We arrived knowing full well that most of the trails were off limits to dogs, and that was fine. However, the walk from the campsite to the Visitor’s Center was perfect, with stunning views. Well worth the trip.

Spectacular views

Telluride Gondola

Our pup was a little apprehensive as there is a lot of bumping and grinding as the gondola takes off, but once off it’s smooth soaring. The views are spectacular and a highlight of visiting Telluride.

Hot but very interesting!

Fruita Paleontological Area

This was a gentle walk that teaches you all about all the geology of the area. Be sure to bring water as there is NO SHADE so it gets hot.

Great views and petroglyphs

Palisade Rim Trail Head

Although the outward hike is uphill, it isn’t too tough as it meanders back and forth. The petroglyphs are really interesting and an added bonus at the top. You can continue for another 8 miles to the upper rim if you are so inclined. It was all very Fido friendly, but remember to take a lot of water, as there is little shade.

Great Hike by the Stream

Grandstaff Canyon Trail

This was a really fun hike that crisscrossed the stream constantly. The scenery was beautiful and the terrain was very easy. However, the trail itself was too hot for our pup, but that was on us, hiking in the afternoon in 109F heat! So, be prepared for it to be hot with long stretches with no shade, but if you get there early or during a different time of year I imagine it would be perfect! I’d definitely do it again!

Did the job

Motel 6 Lincoln NE - Airport

The one good thing about our stay is that our dog could stay too for kids extra cost. Apart from that the room was awful. Bugs in the bathroom, weird stains in the carpet, terrible musty smell. But, it was for one night and we got there at 9pm and left at 5am - so it did the job. I’ve stayed in some sketchy hotels before, but this one literally made my skin crawl.

Great Walk Through The Woods

University of Michigan Nichols Arboretum

A nice little walk through the woods. parking was limited, but that’s to be expected with it being so close to the hospital complex. There are no amenities to speak if, but if you’re looking for a nice walk with your dog(s), close to the hospitals, then this place fits the bill.

Great Fun For All!

Crooked Key Escape Rooms

Our escape was more of a scavenger hunt through downtown Steamboat Springs. The clues were tricky, but lots of fun. You get to learn a bit about the local history whilst on your ‘mission’. Extremely dog friendly!

Nice Little Hike, Steps Are Challenging

Seven Falls

The falls are worth a visit, but the steps are not particularly dog friendly as they are sort of ‘floating’. We had to carry our small dog up, which was a challenge! Nice easy hike at the top. Worth a visit, but I the stairs are not for all dogs.

Stunning Views

Royal Gorge Bridge & Park

Our pup enjoyed walking over the bridge although some of the boards were a little spaced out and he caught his paw down one - no harm done. It was a hot (90F) and windy day and the blacktop was so hot we had to carry our pup to save his paws from burning, lucky for us he’s still small. Due to the wind the gondola was shut down, which was unfortunate but called for. There was no partial refund, but I think we could use our tickets to go back again or something (I didn’t quite understand what they guy said). $29 a person, a bit pricey but the views were good.

Great Views

Red Rock Canyon Open Space

Had a fun time walking some relatively easy trails with smashing views. We forgot to pick up a trail map, but if you kept you eye on the mountains and the Garden of the Gods you can’t go wrong. Will definitely go back again before we leave.

Super Interesting

Manitou Cliff Dwellings

These cliff dwellings are a must see as they are super interesting. They are very dog friendly, allowing us to take our dog through the museum and dwellings. There was no grass or any other area for our for our dog to do his business, but the terrain doesn’t naturally lend itself to grass do what can you do. It’s a great place to visit, highly recommended.

Wonderful Pizza

Pizzeria Rustica

Due to Covid the outdoor seating was limited so we made a reservation as it’s a really popular restaurant. They were super dog friendly and the food was excellent, if a tad pricey.

Great For The Price

Red Roof Inn Des Moines

It’s no frills but for the price and no fee for the dog it works. the neighborhood isn’t great, but that’s how it goes, it’s not as if you’ll be walking around that much. It’s a short drive to places so that’s no problem. There’s a strip of grass for ‘business’, so all is good!

Fun Place

Pappajohn Sculpture Park

Very nice park with some interesting sculptures.

A Must If You’re In The Area

Dog-N-Suds Drive-In

This old style drive in has lots of picnic benches that allow you to bring your dog with you. The staff are nice and friendly and the service was very fast. I was impressed that the staff all wore masks when they brought the food out, which is a high priority during this pandemic. The food was great, with more crinkle-cut fries than we could eat! A must if you’re in the area.
