Hiking, reading, board games, enjoying the view, mosaic tile, exploring. River rafting and hot springs if you have money. The Weather is at 10,400 feet so bring warm clothes but also a swimming suit for hot springs, creeks, rivers and a few ponds. The town of Buena Vista, Colorado is 20 miles away. I go to town once a week for supplies. Plus do excursions after work to enjoy life to the fullest.
