Octoberfest at Glenwood Caverns Provides Fall Fun for Everyone

Autumn in the Rockies is a thing of beauty, splendor and color, highlighted by golden aspen, purple willows, orange scrub oak and green pines all standing prominently against azure skies. Summer crowds are gone and the warmth of Indian summer bathes the landscape, making it the perfect time to pursue the activities we love.

It’s also time for Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park to host its annual Octoberfest, from October 1 through 28, when the park offers an array of special activities, food and music to celebrate autumn.

It all starts with a spectacular ride on our tram to the top of Iron Mountain with stunning panoramas of the mountains and the river valleys below.  At the top, you’ll find the park dressed up for this seasonal dance, decked out with all the trappings of this special time of year.

It’s a wonderful experience for families, with plenty of daily activities including a pumpkin patch—just $3 per pumpkin—straw bales to play on, fall photo opportunities, special handmade fudge and fudge-covered apples. Of course, no Octoberfest is complete without traditional beers and foods like brats with sauerkraut, pretzels and cider for the kids.

There’s always more to choose from at the Lookout Grille. You can enjoy great grilled foods, salads, sandwiches and refreshments. There’s also a full bar, serving beer and wine plus a robust Bloody Mary bar to enjoy while taking in stunning vistas of the surrounding colors.

There’s even more fun on Saturdays from noon – 6 p.m. when the park offers tractor-drawn hayrides and a plethora of kids’ activities and entertainment like face painting, Halloween/harvest-themed games to play and pumpkin decorating.  New this year will be a scavenger hunt for prizes, including a child’s Annual Thrill Pass.

On Sat., Oct. 13, and Sat., Oct. 20, from noon to 4 p.m., you can enjoy classic Octoberfest music from local oompah band Alpine Echo. Their traditional European sound will light up your lederhosen and get your polka in the groove.  It’s a good thing that Octoberfest beer will be available to refresh you.

And if that’s not enough…most of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s rides and family attractions – including the award-winning Haunted Mine Drop – will be still be available to thrill and excite.  The best part? It’s all included with the Funday Pass, which includes the tram ride and unlimited turns on all open rides and all Octoberfest Activities.

Octoberfest…just one reason why any local will tell you that summer rocks, but in the high country, autumn is where it’s at.  Learn more about Glenwood Caverns and Octoberfest online.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
