Family Off-Roading Adventure in Ouray, Colorado

This summer my husband took our family adventures to a whole new level! Our recent road trip took us to the mountain trails in Ouray, Colorado. Before our family vacation, my husband carefully outfit our RZR off-road vehicle with harasses and seat belts for the whole family. Once in the mountains, we explored several of the easiest trail routes and saw some gorgeous views! Some parts were a bit bumpier than my kids preferred but they were troopers and they will hopefully remember some of these amazing adventures!

Columbines are Colorado’s state flower. These gorgeous blue blooms were growing everywhere! It’s no surprise that these were one of my favorite flowers when I was growing up in Colorado.

My husband does quite a bit of off-roading by himself but adventures are always more fun when you can bring the whole family along!

We keep the kids safe on our off-road adventures by gearing up with helmets, safety harnesses and seat belts. And of course daddy is a responsible driver.
