Aspen,  Colorado
On a perfect Colorado day, soak up the beauty of Independence Pass—the highest paved pass in the state—on a bike ride. Bikers climb more than 12,000 feet to reach Independence Pass and the Continental Divide—but the views, and the aspens, are outstanding. It’s true that the harrowing backroad to Aspen isn’t for the faint of heart, but you can revel in the stunning scenery.
