The natural beauty of Colorado and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water beats anything. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The beautiful Sawatch Range scenery
    is an added bonus. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people coming here. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Colorado is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're not
from around here don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling spots. The put-in location is a short drive from Edwards.

Briefly about the general area:
Have a magnificent hiking adventure along the Fall Creek Trail, and since you're here you will meet
 
lots of folks from nearby Red Cliff. If you like the outdoors you'll like it here in the Sawatch Range. Going for a hike along the Two Elk Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this region. Ski Cooper has nice slopes and a friendly staff, and a good place close by is Yoder Gulch. All through the days of summer here at Nova Guides, high temperatures usually get into the 70's, and through summer nights temperatures are in the 40's. High temperatures during the winter are normally in the 20's; after the sun is down through the wintertime temperatures at Nova Guides fall into the 0's.
