Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, located four miles west of Fort Collins, covers 2,711 acres, includes 29 miles of hiking/biking trails, and ranges in elevation from 5,430 to 7,255 feet. With Horsetooth Rock as its most prominent landmark, Horsetooth Open Space offers a quick outdoor getaway for Northern Colorado residents and visitors. A hike might lead you to Horsetooth Falls or all the way to Horsetooth Rock, where you will find magnificent views of Fort Collins, Horsetooth Reservoir, and Longs Peak (on a clear day). Take advantage of living along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and enjoy a day (or even just a couple of hours!) at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space.

A Plug for Best Buy

[ 0 ] July 2, 2016 |

I discovered this past weekend that not only will Best Buy price match the published deals of other brick and mortar stores, but they will also match Amazon Prime prices. I bought a pair of Bluetooth earbud headphones this past weekend that cost over $100 in the store, but could be found at Amazon.com for under $70. Because 1) the earbuds were in stock (at Amazon), and 2) fulfillment was completed by Amazon, I was able to purchase my new earbuds, from Best Buy, for Amazon’s price.

I thought this was great because I was able to see, touch and feel what I was buying before committing, and I was also able to make the purchase for the lowest price possible. Even better, you don’t have to have an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of this benefit, the item simply needs to be identified as Prime (and must be in stock).a

So before make your next purchase at Best Buy, make sure to check out Amazon.com first. If you find a lower price with Amazon, and if the item is designated “Prime” and fulfilled by Amazon, they will lower the price to match.
(For more specifics, just Google “Best Buy price match guarantee.”)
