    Are you up to these eight outdoor challenges?

     •  

    Colorado Parks and Wildlife estimates more than two-thirds of Coloradans play outside at least once a week. This month, Outdoor Adventure Quest dares you to up that dose of plein air with its adventure challenge: Complete as many of the event’s more than 1,000 outdoor activities (spread across all 100,000-plus square miles of Colorado) as you can in 72 hours to win fancy gear from sponsors. Sounds great—so long as you’re not limited by a job, family, or funds. For those who are, we’ve designed a slightly tamer game made up of challenges within two hours of Denver. Roll the dice to get going.
