I say go wherever you want to go, alone or not.
Outdoor activities are some of the easiest things to do alone (other than maybe super rural hiking that could be dangerous or something).
Go for it.

Coloradan here, there are a ton of hiking Facebook groups where you can find a random group to go with regularly. People are also pretty friendly at bars and breweries (probably easier if you’re a female though).

I always find cheap Airbnb’s around Keystone/Dillon/Silverthorne. Summit County is a great place to spend time.

Absolutely would recommend starting off or ending your trip up in Denver - great beer spots if that’s your thing and perfect spot to rent a car/head elsewhere for the rest of your time in CO.

Do it! I did the Colorado trail as a solo F after college and had the best time! My favorite part were the San Juan’s, but they are the most inconvenient. I loved the via ferrata in telluride and telluride itself. Hit up some hot springs! It depends on your skill level but I’d recommend trying to tick off some fourteeners, especially ones with some gnarly scrambles.

Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.

First time flying with Delta and the only advantage I see here is the extra leg room. The description says complimentary alcoholic beverages but they might not even have the time to hand out anything.

I need to pay this $9.68 out of my own pocket. Not sure if it worth it for a 1 hr flight.

However at a company event they made no effort to get to know the team and chose to stick to their familiar colleagues in their home office. I’d like to ask for a new resource but interested in feedback.
