Best Of 2015: Adventure Company

Adventures Out West started in Pueblo in 1973, when Bruce Wellens decided he needed a hobby. "He was just bored and looking for an adventure, and so he bought a hot air balloon," his son Greg Wellens recalls. "Then people started asking for rides." Greg now runs the operation his father started (it moved to Colorado Springs many years ago), offering balloon rides, Jeep excursions, Segway adventures, zip line tours and more. Next summer, the company will put on the COS Rodeo, Wednesday nights at the Norris-Penrose Event Center. Attendees can eat a cowboy meal, watch balloon glows, sit around a campfire, see a full rodeo, and even participate — the truly adventurous may ride a bull.— J. Adrian Stanley
