Prepare yourself for temperatures reaching into the mid-90s today through Wednesday.
As mother nature decided to grace us with her sun-shining presence, it’s only fitting we take full advantage of the sunshine with some outdoor activities. Visiting the zoo, botanical garden, Mount Evans, or the Rocky Mountain National Park are must-do activities when summer weather finally kicks in.
However, if you’re wanting to do more than taking a stroll, going for a jog, or finding the nearest park for a picnic, here are a three things to do this week to celebrate the heat.
