The Passport Adventures of Faye and Bob
Friends Faye Tucker and Bob Grant journeyed to every Colorado State Park — it was Bob's second time around!
The two began their Passport Champion quest at the end of June and visited every State Park just two months later.
"We're so passionate about Colorado State Parks and what they have to offer," Faye Tucker said.
The friends rented a car and traveled 3,800 miles. Their day visits consisted of walking around and picnicking.
It was Bob Grant's second time visiting each state park. In 2000 he journeyed to every park when Gov. Bill Owens declared it the "Year of State Parks."
Nine years ago, Bob was still working and completed some of the parks in the winter, camping in his station wagon. Now retired, Bob and Faye stayed in motels during this quest.
"No snow; it was more comfortable," Bob said.
The friends rented a car and enjoyed day visits, walking around and picnicking.
"It was exciting. They are all so beautiful and have such different features," Bob said. "The plains state parks have their own perks and beauty and the mountain parks have a different beauty."
Bob and Faye especially enjoyed Roxborough State Park.
"When you hike behind the rocks, there's this suddenness of beauty that you can't see until you're on it," Bob said. "Those hiking trails are gorgeous."
