Hardy carrots are a root veggie with orange, white, purple, red, and yellow varieties. Carrots are in season in fall and early winter and are a wonderful base for soups.

Onions
Late summer through early fall is onion harvest time, though they keep excellently in cool storage. They’re perfect as the base of many dishes, sauces, soups, and stews.

Potatoes
Starchy potatoes have many varieties, whether they’re fried, baked, boiled, or broiled. Their harvest season is fall, though they will last in the right storage for many months.

Seasonal Ingredients for Fall Cooking from Neighboring States

Beets
Also called beetroots or garden beets, these are root vegetables that have a deep, reddish-purple color. They’re ready from fall through spring.

Pecans
Native to the Deep South, pecans are buttery nuts with a thick outer shell. They are great for adding to your favorite fall recipes for the holiday season.

Leeks
Leeks are in the same family as onions and garlic and provide for an alternative to hearty meals throughout the colder months.

October was National Chili Month, so in honor of this occasion, Cheyenne Mountain Resort created their recipe of the month, Green Elk Chili a warm and comforting fall dish. Ground elk meat is cooked with onions, garlic, and spices and paired with pureed tomatillos and green chilies for a hearty meal.

We hope you have the opportunity to get out and take advantage of the great local ingredients throughout the season when planning your menus.

5 Family Summer Vacation Ideas in the Rocky Mountains

Formed over 55 million years ago, the Rocky Mountains stretch over 3,000 miles. The dramatic scenic views make the Rockies the perfect place for vacations. Here are some summer family vacation ideas for vacations in the Rocky Mountains.

Experience the Rockies with fun activities on your family summer vacation in the Rocky Mountains

There are many fun things for all ages to do in the Rocky Mountains:ZIP LINING_Woman going on a  zip line adventure

  1. Rafting trips in Colorado down the Colorado or Poudre Rivers or Clear Creek can be whitewater; exciting and challenging, or serene on a meandering river.

  2. Kayaking along the run from the Estes Park kayak course is thrilling, with the course extending all the way to downtown Estes.

  3. The Colorado Ziplining experience for daring adventurers lets you safely fly from Pikes Peak through the air at speeds up to 55 MPH over cliffs and other intriguing terrain.

  4. Hot air ballooning in the Rocky Mountains is a great choice also, as you glide through the air over Colorado Springs and the majestic Front Range of the Rockies.

  5. Wildlife watching and scenic drives can introduce you to an amazing array of animals in the Rocky Mountains. You can see (and hear) male elks bugling to the lady elks, as they call the ladies to mating season.

The best place to stay while you vacation in the Rockies is Cheyenne Mountain Resort. Lounge at the resort’s beach by the lake, let your children enjoy the Kidz Camp and splash pad, and enjoy the resort’s many other amenities.
