  • Cherry Creek State Park
    The staff of Family Shooting Center maintains a public outdoor range, where shooters of all skill levels can hone their firearms proficiency. A day in the trapshooting area challenges sportsmen with pedestal traps, ATA automatic traps, and five-stand sporting clay stations. Alternatively, pistol and rifle ranges offer marksmen targets up to 100 yards away. The facility's multitude of shooting styles also includes an archery range that lets bowmen hone hunter's vision sharper than Davy Crockett's, even after he got LASIK. To further develop responsible firearms operators, instructors lead classes that range from basic safety courses to private instruction for law-enforcement officials. Safety and camaraderie are further encouraged through trapshooting leagues and special rates for Boy Scouts. When hunger starts affecting concentration, an onsite vendor refuels guests with fare such as hot dogs, pulled pork, and gourmet bratwursts made from game meats.

We have the greatest variety of trips and times on the Poudre River. We have three sizes of rafts (large, medium, and small) corresponding to the changing water levels during the summer to keep the excitement level high. Our guides are very experienced, lively, and considered the friendliest on the river. This is [my] 33rd year with the [business]. [I] have been rafting and kayaking on the Poudre and other rivers around the country and the world since the early '70s. We excel at offering our guests a great time on the river. When and how did you first develop a passion for your work? As a student at Maryville College, I started canoeing in the Appalachian Mountains of east Tennessee. After seeing a John Denver concert, I traveled west and discovered the Colorado Plateau and fell in love with the country. I transferred to Colorado State University immediately, where I studied biology, and during my first summer in Colorado, I took a rafting trip and got the river fever. From there I became a Class V kayaker traveling everywhere to experience new rivers, did a stint as a river ranger in the high deserts of Utah, [and] became a high school biology teacher for a few years. [I] then returned to CSU to start a graduate degree when I realized just how special the Poudre River really was. My Shangri-la was right in front of me, and I hadn't even realized it. So I built my house on the river and started my rafting and kayaking business on the Poudre, which I'm still enjoying to this day. What?s your favorite part of your job? Seeing the radiant excitement and smiles of our guests that come with their river adventure.

  • St. Peter's Fly Shop
    Operating under the mantra that fly-fishing isn't a hobby but instead a lifestyle, St. Peter's Fly Shop prepares anglers of all experience levels for success on the stream with classes, gear, and an encyclopedic knowledge of man's gilled adversary. Two Fort Collins locations sit within close proximity of local fishing hot spots, including the waters of Rocky Mountain National Park?famous for its placid lakes made from pastels on canvas?and the Poudre River. There, the staff leads educational courses and guided trips that spend equal time with instruction and hands-on fishing practice, allowing students to perfect the often-difficult art of casting with finesse and accuracy. Back at the shop, customers reel in top-notch equipment such as Winston rods, Simms waders, and Brodin nets, which are sturdy enough to secure a bucking trout as it tries to nestle in the hammock.

  • Sombrero Ranches
    Cody Walker muses that within the stillness of Rocky Mountain National Park, "You get a sense that it's the way it should be." His father, Rex, grew up on a steady diet of cowboy films, eventually following his dream to Colorado where he met his wife, Queeda. Queeda was born into a family of homesteaders who caught and broke wild steeds. In 1959, they channeled their passion for the old-west lifestyle into Sombrero Ranches, eschewing souvenir-shop gimmicks for horseback expeditions that, much like avalanches of super glue, bond visitors with their steeds and natural surroundings. Today, Cody carries on his parents' legacy with a staff of ranch hands from nearby homesteads and college students participating in equine-science programs all across the country. After training in a vigorous program that's evolved during more than 50 years, his employees launch short rides or lengthy adventures. Cody distinguishes the Continental Divide ride as one of the most awe-inspiring; it begins at Bear Lake at 6 a.m., wending across the Continental Divide and to Grand Lake during a nine-hour stretch.
