Summer Free

This is a first for me: I have the entire summer off and the means to travel but I have no idea where to go and what to do. In a perfect world, I would like to find a pretty and centralized place to rent a house or apartment, but with great access to amazing boating, biking and hiking - enough to keep me busy all summer long. If you were in my shoes, where would you go?

I am rather partial to BV, but we have the Arkansas with Granite, Pine Creek, Numbers, Fractions, Milk Run (for beginners), and Browns, as well as one of the best playparks in the Rockies all within 15 miles. Drive a little further and you have class V creeking on Clear Creek and Lake Creek.

We have 2 wilderness areas within a few short miles (Collegiate Peaks and Buffalo Peaks) with great hiking and backpacking as well as a handful of very good mtn bike trails.... although the better biking is 30 minutes away near Salida.

With the serious lack of water we are going to have this summer though you may want to look into the pacific northwest...
