Helpful Hint: Cell phone coverage is available in the majoity of Colorado towns, but once you are out on a trail, river, back-road, mountain summit, or secluded mountain meadow, you'll most likely go off the grid. Before you head out, be sure to let others know where you are going and take plently of photos to share with your friends and family when service returns.
