The BLM Uncompahgre Wilderness in Colorado includes a stunning combination of alpine tundra meadows, rugged and mountainous landscapes, and densely-forested canyons within the north-central San Juan Mountains. Visit and explore over 100 miles of trails, two fourteeners, and 30+ peaks over 13,000 feet in elevation. A perfect place for hiking and backpacking, climbing, camping, horseback riding, and photography!  #mondaymotivation

YEP Bouldering Bus - Colorado Mountain Club

The converted school bus is a mobile classroom sponsored by Youth Education Program (YEP). It combines climbing with team building activities and science. Youths learn about friction, force, and motion to life; discover what rock types are good for climbing; or learn about adaptations needed to survive in the Rocky Mountains through hands-on experiments and rock climbing.

…and the teachers seem to have a blast, too.
