No matter what time of year you find yourself in Colorado, Sage Outdoor Adventures has something to get your adrenaline pumping. In the summer months they offer everything from Horseback Riding to Sporting Clays, Whitewater Rafting to Four wheeling, and much more.
Robert Townsend wrote "Getting there isn't half the fun, it's all the fun." After our drive, I am pretty sure that he wrote that after visiting Sage Outdoor Adventures. It starts off with a simple drive from Vail straight up Highway 70 to Wolcott. The website provides the following directions; "At mile marker 3 turn left onto Horse Mountain Rd. (dirt Rd.) – Follow SAGE signs for the next 3 miles on dirt road, then you will encounter the main Sage Activity sign." The "3 miles on a dirt road" was a dust bowl filled with heavy climbs and steep descents coupled with hairpin switchbacks. The final climb had us looking at the sky and wondering aloud if we were going to fall off the mountain. As we leveled out, we were treated to some amazing views of the valley and surrounding ranges.
Nine of us had decided to take on their Sporting Clays course, which is widely know as one of the most picturesque courses in the country. I won't divulge my score - let's just say I was overcome by the beauty of my surroundings. The course was both beautiful and technical, everything you could want in a Sporting Clays course.
I would be amiss if I didn't give a huge shout out to the extremely friendly and helpful staff without whose advice my score would have been even easier to add up.
