Shutdown Status: States Pay To Reopen Some National Parks

Shutdown Status: States Pay To Reopen Some National Parks Oct 14th, 2013 at 5:00PM: Flickr, David Yu We're going on two weeks of government shutdown, with tourists hoping to see national parks having to sneak in or go home. Thousands of park workers have been furloughed and local businesses who generate income from tourism are feeling the pinch. Several U.S. states are taking matters into their own hands, effectively paying the federal government so that they can reopen. The...

Photo Of The Day: Dead Horse Point Oct 8th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Joe Newman, Flickr As we move into October, the sun is starting to set earlier with every day -- and what better than a sunset photo from our Gadling Flickr Pool to wrap up your Tuesday? Flickr member Joe Newman added this photo of the sun setting over the Colorado River, shot from Dead Horse Point, to the pool. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our...

Photo Of The Day: Leaving Denver

Photo Of The Day: Leaving Denver Sep 16th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Peter Rood, Flickr "Please stow your electronic devices for takeoff." Flickr user (and Gadling Flickr Pool member) Peter Rood might have bent that rule just a little bit on his recent departure from Denver, Colorado. The view from Rood's flight, as it ascended through the stormy skies, is gorgeous. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our Flickr Pool...

Travel Back Thursday: Old Mile High Stadium

Travel Back Thursday: Old Mile High Stadium Sep 5th, 2013 at 6:00PM: hokoglowko, Flickr With tonight's Ravens vs. Broncos season opener, it only seemed fitting to find a throwback photo of the Denver Broncos, years ago. This shot, taken roughly 17 years ago in 1996, shows the Broncos playing on their old "home turf" at Mile High Stadium. The stadium was demolished in 2002. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our Flickr...

The West is on Fire: Here's How Travelers Can Avoid the Burn

The West is on Fire: Here's How Travelers Can Avoid the Burn Aug 23rd, 2013 at 1:30PM: Colorado has their most destructive wildfire on record this season, while a massive California blaze is currently threatening Yosemite National Park. Several of Montana's most scenic highways were closed this week due to fire conditions, rerouting many travelers and affecting local businesses. Other recent blazes have plagued Idaho, including the popular Sun Valley resort, and Utah. Travelers...

Can't Make It To The Tour De France Next Year? Here Are 5 Alternatives Jul 29th, 2013 at 3:30PM: Rob Annis So you want to go to the Tour de France, but don't have the vacation time for a multiple-week excursion or the money for a round-trip ticket? Despite all three of the major Grand Tours taking place in Europe, you can still find top-notch bike racing – and the accompanying fan experience – in the U.S. Here are five of America's biggest road cycling races. Silver City...

Aspen's Rio Grande Bike Trail: Burgers, Bourbon And Basalt

Aspen's Rio Grande Bike Trail: Burgers, Bourbon And Basalt Jul 22nd, 2013 at 11:30AM: Courtesy of Jeremy Swanson I can probably be kicked out of Colorado for admitting this, but I'm just not that into bikes. Don't get me wrong: I've been lugging my vintage, fixed-gear cruiser around for over 21 years. Even though I rarely ride it these days because I live in hilly Boulder, I'm devoted to it. But mountain biking and road cycling plain freak me out, and in this state, that's like...

Fireworks Ban? Try These Fourth Of July Alternatives

Fireworks Ban? Try These Fourth Of July Alternatives Jun 26th, 2013 at 11:00AM: Ming Xia, Flickr With fireworks bans in place across parts of the Western U.S., it's going to be another Fourth of July calling for alternative celebratory activities. In Colorado, where I live, we've learned to accept this fact, and it doesn't stop the outdoor revelry. Picnics and parades are standard July fourth fare, anyway, so if you happen to live in a place suffering from drought or...

5 Alternatives To Car Camping This Summer

5 Alternatives To Car Camping This Summer Jun 23rd, 2013 at 1:00PM: Jason Jones, Flickr If you're the outdoorsy type, it's hard not to enjoy car camping, as long as you find a destination and campground that are compatible with your interests and needs. Not that I'm speaking from experience, but ... let's just say the romantic, roughing-it weekend my ex and I had planned in southwestern Colorado a few years ago turned into pitching a tent in a trailer park...

Thousands Of Airport Delays In Wake Of Sequestration

Thousands Of Airport Delays In Wake Of Sequestration Apr 24th, 2013 at 1:30PM: Earlier this week we warned travelers to expect delays as sequestration cuts hit airports, and now the numbers are in: according to a news release from FlightStats.com, nearly 1,000 flights have been canceled and there have been more than 18,200 flight delays since the Federal Aviation Administration began facing the spending cuts on Sunday. Airports with the highest percentages of delays...

Fresh Snow Extends Colorado Ski Season

Fresh Snow Extends Colorado Ski Season Apr 13th, 2013 at 8:00AM: If you're a skier or snowboarder who is reluctant to see the season come to an end, I've got good news for you. April snow showers have continued to dump fresh powder across the state of Colorado and as a result, several of the resorts there have either extended their seasons or elected to re-open for the weekend. That means that even though the calendar now says it's spring, there is still time...

Colorado Locals Start Marijuana Tourism Business

Colorado Locals Start Marijuana Tourism Business Apr 5th, 2013 at 9:00AM: Colorado could join Amsterdam as a pot-smoker's travel destination if two Denver locals have anything to do about it. Matt Brown and James Walker have started a travel company aimed at those looking to take advantage of the state's new marijuana laws. According to NBC News, the company known as My 420 Tours sets travelers up in "pot-friendly" hotels, takes them on tours of marijuana...

The 10th Mountain Division Huts: Colorado's Historic Legacy To Outdoor Lovers

The 10th Mountain Division Huts: Colorado's Historic Legacy To Outdoor Lovers Mar 16th, 2013 at 1:00PM: Since moving back to Colorado last August, I've actively tried to gain more experience in backcountry pursuits. I've been a downhill skier all my life, but prohibitive costs and weekend warrior traffic are a drag. At this point in my life, I also find more enjoyment in the contemplative, peaceful nature of snowshoeing and nordic skiing. My ultimate goal for the backcountry has always been to...

Aspen/Snowmass Hosts Inaugural 'Après Ski Cocktail Classic,' March 14-17 Mar 9th, 2013 at 1:00PM: What's more fun than drinking an après ski beer at altitude? Attending a post-slopes cocktail festival at altitude. The first-annual Après Ski Cocktail Classic debuts in Aspen/Snowmass March 14-17, and will feature superstar mixologists and boozy experts such as Tony Abou-Ganim and Steve "Wine Geek" Olson, as well as chefs, sommeliers, spirit aficionados and "professional tipplers."...

Have A Heart: How This Organ Meat Is Eaten Around The World

Have A Heart: How This Organ Meat Is Eaten Around The World Feb 13th, 2013 at 12:00PM: Americans are frequently credited with having a lot of heart, but when it comes to eating them, we're not so hip on the idea. Even though offal, or "nose-to-tail" eating has been on-trend for some years now, a lot of people still flinch at the idea of dining on animal heart. The reality is, heart is a delicious, healthy, versatile meat, devoid of the strong flavor possessed by most (improperly...

Skiing Through Alaska's Abandoned Buckner Building (VIDEO)

Feb 12th, 2013 at 12:00PM: Here at Gadling, our inboxes are full of pitches on the fabulous skiing conditions in Colorado and Utah, but news about the latest lifts and bases rarely sparks our interest. You know what does? Setting up an obstacle course in an abandoned building. That does. To create the video above, Logan Imlach and Matt Wild spent six days constructing and skiing a line through the infamous Buckner...

Adventure Guide 2013: Crested Butte

Adventure Guide 2013: Crested Butte Feb 9th, 2013 at 11:00AM: Crested Butte features incredible backcountry and extreme opportunities in a remote and captivating package. It's also got more lift-accessed extreme terrain than anywhere else in the nation. You may need to purchase a ski-pass, but it's all avalanche-controlled (what's known as sidecountry, rather than backcountry). Few are the powder hounds who miss the constant threat of imminent burial...

Cochon 555 Pork Competition Turns Five, Kicks Off February 17 In Atlanta Feb 8th, 2013 at 12:00PM: Much ado about pork products is made on Gadling, with good reason. Even if you're sick to death of pork-centric eateries, and lardo this and sausage that, it's hard to deny the allure of the other white meat (I can't tell you how many vegetarians and vegans I know who still have a jones for bacon). For those of you wanting to attend the ultimate porkapalooza, get your tickets for Cochon 555, a...

Adventure Guide 2013: Aspen

Adventure Guide 2013: Aspen Feb 7th, 2013 at 11:00AM: If you've ever yearned to visit Aspen, this is the time. Aspen is hot right now, fresh off the X Games, because it's just opened its first sidecountry terrain (see below). The revamped Limelight Hotel is also making headlines for having the coolest après ski spot in town. If you crave adventure and think Aspen is out of your budget, time to reconsider: the hardcore outdoor opps are...
