It's 100% legal now, within some limits. Wikipedia summarizes the situation neatly: Adults aged 21 or older can grow up to three immature and three mature cannabis plants privately in a locked space, legally possess all cannabis from the plants they grow (as long as it stays where it was grown), legally possess up to one ounce of cannabis while traveling,...

The reason is that from 2013 till 2015, number plates in Colorado were issued in sequential order; from 001-AAQ all the way till 999-ZZQ. From mid-2015 onwards, common sense prevailed and random combination of letters and numbers were used :-) Source: the ever-useful wikipedia.

It looks like the retail marijuana outlet closest to the Denver airport is Timberline Herbal Clinic and Wellness Center. That looks to be a ~30 minute drive each way, or more like 90 minutes to 2 hours by mass transit. You might be able to arrange a ride with Supershuttle. But at best you're going to be cutting things close with a 4 1/2 hour layover. If you ...

There is a public commuter bus service running between Denver and Fort Collins: Bustang North Line. It runs from Denver's Union Station (which is where Amtrak stops) to the Fort Collins downtown transit center, with only two intermediate stops (I-25 at US-34 in Loveland, and the Harmony Transfer Center at I-25 and Harmony Road in Fort Collins). The bus ...

You've identified most of the standard options. Almost all travel between Denver and Fort Collins is by private car (as is almost all travel in general in the U.S., outside of a handful of corridors between large cities), and relatively few people are expected to take Amtrak to Denver in order to get to Fort Collins, so the schedules are not coordinated. ...

Just to supplement Rory Alsop's answer: I've driven that road, and didn't think it was excessively steep or windy. I was in a pickup truck, but small cars on the road didn't seem to have any trouble. I routinely drive steeper and windier roads in a Honda Civic. I think any modern car in good working order will be just fine, even a compact or economy model....

I had no idea, so I did a bit of googling. I suggest, these mountains belong to the Rampart Range

This appears to be a house in Aspen, Colorado architected by Charles Cunniffe Architects, see here. On that page you can see a full gallery of the house with other angles of the mountains. It appears to be a private residence that does not appear to be rentable.

I am guessing you are searching for flights from Tucson (TUS) to Denver (DEN), but you can get much cheaper flights from Phoenix (PHX). I'm seeing round-trip fares PHX-DEN-PHX of $112 (Spirit Airlines, many extra fees likely), $144 (Southwest, includes bags) and $185 (US Airways, bags extra). The difference would probably cover a shuttle from Tucson to PHX ...

Unless you are planning on taking some very out of the way trails (in which case I'd suggest renting a pickup truck) the 285 is a pretty good road, from all the info I can find online. A small car is not going to present a problem if you are just packing light. You wouldn't want to try and shoehorn a lot of heavy luggage into one, but small rental cars will ...

Cheyenne Mountain does offer tours, but not to members of the public. That program was scaled down in 1999 and discontinued after September 11. TripAdvisor reviews from a few years ago suggest that "Friends and Family" tours can be scheduled on Fridays, but you must be invited and escorted by someone who works at the facility, and must be a member of the U....

On Greyhound I can find one way tickets from Tucson to Denver for 99$. It takes less than 24 hours and has a transfer in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Boulder is in the Denver metropolitan area, so transfer from Denver to Boulder is trivial. I doubt any other mode of transportation is going to systematically beat that, although you may or may not find cheaper ...

Nobody is talking about traffic. The traffic on I 25 between Cheyenne and devore is absolutely horrendous. Either direction. Especially during rush hour. I am a truck driver and I avoid it at all costs, if at all possible. Going I 70 will give you some of the best scenery this country has to offer. Take a break at the rest area at the top of Vail pass. ...

Here's some things to consider. Some people go I-80 to Laramie and down through Fort Collins into Denver. However, Fort Collins has developed and more stoplights will slow you down. Now some people elect to go to Cheyenne and then down I-25 but this adds some distance. Where you want to go/or traveling from in the Denver area is a big factor in your ...

Based on your criteria, the I-70 to US-6 route appears to be superior. This route has T-Mobile 3G coverage along most of its route, whereas I-80 has little or no data coverage west of Cheyenne. This route is slightly shorter, though the difference in distance is trivial. As both routes travel through mountain passes, fuel usage should be similar between ...

Just found answers to questions 1 and 2: Traction Law (Code 15) During an active Traction Law (also known as a Code 15), motorists must have either snow tires, tires with the mud/snow (M+S) designation, or a four-wheel/all-wheel drive vehicle. All tires must have a minimum one-eighth inch tread. Under a Traction Law, both metal-studded and studless snow ...

Amtrak's California Zephyr will take you through the Rockies along the Colorado River. The train is equipped with observation, dining and sleeping cars, and the scenery is spectacular - I would absolutely recommend as a trip it by itself. In terms of providing access to the mountains, you can pick it up anywhere from Chicago to San Francisco, or, closer by, ...

How to visit Colorado mountains during the winter without driving through unsafe road conditions to get to the transit service? If you are uncomfortable driving in (potentially) snowy and icy conditions, then the easiest thing is to not do it. And by this I don't mean not to visit, I mean that you could organize your trip so that someone else does the ...

Given your scheduling, one option is to drive. Google Maps shows it as a 13 to 13.5 hour drive, all on major highways (i.e. no questionable remote back roads involved). Both Orbitz and Expedia suggest that a one-way car rental from Tucson would cost about $145 including fees. Of course, with a drive that long you might want to stay overnight on the way. That ...

There are many resources you can look at. You can probably start with official tourist guides for the states such as Arizona Guide or Utah.com, but if not you can probably Google IT or use Rodeoz, which has some of the many rodeos listed state by state.

I suggest you contact someone there to help you with the process before come to US. In Florida, you may have several options to pay your traffic ticket, including: Online. By mail. By phone. In person.

As others have mentioned flying can be equally cheap as taking the bus or train on a journey of this length, depending on the time of booking, and if you're traveling round-trip. Driving is likely a bit more expensive if you don't already have a car. If you are traveling last-minute or one-way bus seems to be the best way. For that it'll be easiest to ...

Arrow / Black Hills Stages have an early bus, but it's unclear if it only stops in Greeley or also in Ft. Collins. Greyhound lists this bus as departing from Ft. Collins (5:45am) but Arrow / Black Hills lists it only from Greeley. You may want to call them to confirm. This bus is scheduled to arrive Denver Greyhound station at 6:40am. It's a 12 minute walk ...

If you're going on a weekday (Monday through Friday and not a holiday), you could take the Bustang North Line commuter bus service. See my answer on Getting from Denver Amtrak to Fort Collins for details. For instance, there is a bus leaving downtown Fort Collins at 5:40 AM and arriving at Union Station at 7:05 AM. You can also catch it at I-25 and ...
