Looking for a great social distancing couples anniversary getaway in Colorado. Check out our fun trip and why Hoo-Rag bandanas are a must for this fun!

Couples Anniversary Getaway
My husband and I spent the weekend away from everyone. Social distancing, spending quality time together and taking in our beautiful state. When we first were married 12 years ago, we had agreed to take a couples trip yearly, around our anniversary. We have been pretty good about sticking to this and have only missed 1 or 2 years.
This year we decided to load up our camper and ATV and take it on a little trip for our first time with just the two of us. We thought we were going just about 2 hours away from home to South Park, Colorado, but when we punched the address in the GPS we were about 5 hours away in South Fork, Colorado.
Although we had both grew up in Colorado, we had never actually been to South Fork. However, we quickly learned that this little town was full of beauty, great ATV trails and a serene space centered on the Rio Grande. We highly recommend checking out South Fork, Colorado if you are looking for some great trails, friendly people and incredible views.
We spent our quick couples anniversary weekend checking out the ATV trails, fishing a bit in the ponds, streams and reservoirs that we came across and just enjoying each others company. It was truly a great getaway and we definitely want to get back to South Fork soon!
ATVing in South Fork
We love ATVing as a family. It is something that we truly all enjoy but we are also very careful and make sure to stay on trails and just enjoy the ride while leaving no trace. ATVing in South Fork was a gorgeous and peaceful experience. The trails were pretty much empty, but easy to navigate and the views, wow, those views.
We spent like 6 hours out on the trails, eating our lunch on the way, taking breaks to just walk and look around and catching glimpses of deer, chipmunks and cows. YUP! Cows! We ended up inadvertently in a cattle drive on the trail we took. HUNDREDS of cattle being moved from one area to the next and just taking their time. It was an experience but we laughed so hard and just enjoyed the “moos” cute little faces of those cattle and the experience.
Hoo-Rag Bandanas Are A MUST for the Trails
ATVing is dusty and with face coverings and social distancing in place. My husband and I wanted to have a lightweight, easy to adjust mask that we could wear to keep the dust down, follow mandated protocols and that were comfortable to wear and easy to breath in.
We got a family set of these awesome Hoo-Rags and decided to put them to the test. Hoo-Rag tubular face bandanas are seamless, and you can wear them 15 different ways. They have great designs, come in both adult and children’s sizes and aim to make face protection fun and stylish.
We put the Hoo-Rag bandanas to the test during our LONG, dusty and weather filled ATV ride. While joining the dusty cattle drive, we pulled up our Hoo-Rags to keep the dust out of our face and immediately we both noticed a huge difference. We were inhaling much less dirt and bonus, we were able to cover my husbands neck to protect from the sun.
We also were up near treeline in South Fork and it was cold and snowing and we were underprepared. Both of us were so thankful for the Hoo-Rags because they kept our faces warm, the dust down and they were super easy to breath through. I was also able to wash them easily and wear the Hoo-Rag as a headband too as we walked around various areas looking for deer antlers.
