Visit oddball destinations like the trail of America’s favorite cannibal and the renowned ghost town of Saint Elmo. Work up a thirst on the hiking trails of Rocky Mountain National Park and unwind on the single block in the state that is home to a brewery, a winery and a distillery. Uncover the craft, creative and cultural gems that make the Centennial State a curious wanderer’s dream."

A reporter with the “Denver Business Journal,” Sealover covers state government, tourism and the beverage industry. Over his 20-year journalism career, he's received 77 state, regional and national awards in categories ranging from investigative reporting to political reporting to public service.
