An Amazing Colorado Snowstorm: Photos

Every year, I hope a huge snowstorm hits Colorado in October. Those first snowflakes are so magical. Memories of snow angels, snowball fights, and snowmen, not to mention ski season, baking, and slow-cooked meals, always brings out the kid in me. Read on for photos of this amazing Colorado snowstorm. While we were in Europe,... Continue Reading →

Aspen Alley Leaf Peeping in Breckenridge

When my daughter's boyfriend suggested Aspen Alley in Breckenridge for leaf-peeping, I said, "What?" How did we not know about this spectacular hike? Dan, (not to be confused with my husband, Danny) found the gem on an app for mountain bike trail. Amazing! Despite back-to-school and football games, people flocked to the mountains enjoy the...

Yoga with the SHARKS!

When I learned the Denver Aquarium hosted Yoga with the Sharks on Saturdays, I had to go! I missed Shark Week. This unusual class combined an adventure fix with a zen experience.  I had to share my photos and videos of my latest adventure. I've always been a water girl (something to do with my...

Another Colorado Backpacking Adventure

Our first landscape crew, soon fired, cut three of my Hidcote... Continue Reading →

Kennelling our dog has become highway robbery between $42-47 per night. But that wasn't the reason I relented and brought... Continue Reading →

A Hike to Hanging Lake Waterfalls

A jewel of a lake lies right outside of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. It's easy to miss while driving down I-70, east or west. Hanging Lake quite literally hangs from above. 1200 feet in elevation, to be exact. The waterfalls are worth every step. When my husband, Danny, and I arrived at the parking lot, a...

Oh, Hail. Beautiful Devastation

Weather in Colorado can be unpredictable. When green tinged thunderclouds roll in, I cross my fingers we don't get hail. Yesterday, pea-sized hail grew to marble size in seconds. After the quick storm, I checked out the plants. Most of the flowers made it through. I let out a held breath. Eight miles away, golf... Continue Reading →
