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...

How to Travel with Dogs

I only considered traveling with one dog. A yappy dog. A dog who on occasion tears around the house in a tirade of twists and turns, kicking up dust and scattering rugs in her wake. Kennelling our dog has become highway robbery between $42-47 per night. But that wasn't the reason I relented and brought... Continue Reading →

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 →

A Silhouetted Bonfire!

Mesmerized by the crackling fire, I found magic in silhouettes of the onlookers. When the wind changed direction, sparks flew and the crowd moved to better... Continue Reading →

Night Skiing at Keystone!

My great plan a few weeks ago: I thought it would be fun to go out for brunch with the family, ski a couple of runs before Breckenridge closed for the day, and then relax at night. A complete shutdown at Breck and skiing Keystone didn't come close to niggling my wild imagination. The day... Continue Reading →

When I learned about Hygge and what it meant, I wanted to add more to my life here in Colorado. Hygge is a Scandinavian word, pronounced hue-gah, used to describe an extraordinary moment during an otherwise ordinary day by being aware of the feeling of coziness and charm in order to slow our fast-paced life....

Autumn And An Early Arrival!

After a week in Wisconsin, I packed up and headed to the Rocky Mountains to see the autumn colors. What I didn't expect was an early arrival. These are drive-by shots, meaning, I jumped out of the car to shoot the picture. Don't worry. No aspens were harmed in the making of this blog post.... Continue Reading →

How to Be a Gaper – A Photo Essay

Gaper Day is a tradition at ski resorts. Even if they don't have a party, the last day of the season brings out the gaper in most skiers and snowboarders. We drove to Vail for their closing day. They had their spring splash the weekend before, but it didn't dampen the party atmosphere. What's a... Continue Reading →
