Berman-ColoradoCamping-6I live in Colorado. I also work and raise my family here. As I explore the state, I publish a monthly column in The Denver Post called “Around Colorado,” and I write and curate the guide to Colorado. My book, Moon Colorado Camping, is a guide to nearly 500 campgrounds across the state.

In the meantime, as you make your way through the Rocky Mountains, be careful with shortcuts, carry chains for your tires, remember to dress in layers, drink plenty of water, and get up for that sunrise.
