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!
Many of the mountain trails were easy to navigate with a Jeep. We had no problem exploring the paths in our smaller RZR off-road vehicle.
Exploring mountain paths allow you to see so many amazing views. The weather in Ouray, Colorado was absolutely perfect in June!
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 little guy enjoyed perching on the mountain side and taking in the view.
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.
We love going on family-friendly adventures and having an off-road vehicle really opens up options for places we can explore. Hopefully our kids will grow up with a healthy sense of adventure!
