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...

How to Paddleboard and What I Learned

The first time I saw paddleboarders, they reminded me of the Venice gondoliers without the striped shirts and skinny, long canoes. Then I learned it builds core, leg, and upper body strength. I'm all about exercising while outdoors. Being landlocked in Colorado, adopting a new water sport intrigued me so I reserved a paddleboard. I... Continue Reading →

Win a Handmade Christmas Card!

It's time to guess and win a card! One of my Christmas traditions is to draw a family Christmas Card. It's almost done. I'm toying with adding something to the last drawing. Yes, there are three illustrations this year. No popups. Whew! I had to draw a line (pun intended) to save my sanity. A... Continue Reading →

Dodging Bullets and Creepy Crawlers

Roxy is a hunter. If you looked at her body, you’d say, “Nah, I don’t believe it.” She’s pretty puny with front legs about eight inches long. Believe it.

How I learned to fly!

I learned how to fly. I let go. I trusted. I flew by being, not doing. Yesterday, I returned from Wanderlust Yoga Festival in a peaceful state of bliss, feeling renewed, refreshed and very sore. From meditation to slack lining, this four day adventure blew my mind. I had worried about my first class, acroyoga, mentioned in... Continue Reading →

Dissolving Bone, Wimping Out and Shaping Up

Hey, Wild Riders! How was your weekend? Would you take a pill that dissolved bone? You’ve seen the commercials. Almost every drug has side-effects. My oncologist switched me from Tamoxifen, which can cause uterine cancer to Anastrozole, which breaks down bone. You can imagine I’ve been more than a little concerned. I picture a vinegar-like...

My 50 Faves and How to Join!

After losing my dad in October, my poor mother had looked forward to coming to our home for the holidays. She hadn’t traveled since his heart attack in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed her trip to our house over Thanksgiving. She wasn’t feeling well last week, but packed her bags. My family had driven to ski... Continue Reading →

My Impulsivity Can Be Surprising!

When my husband, Danny, was invited to go hut skiing the same weekend as our trip to Wisconsin, skiing won. You're not surprised, are you? Anyway, last Tuesday, Danny remembered we hadn’t transferred the tickets. I had spaced them out too. Duh! We would lose them on Thursday. One ticket could be used in April, but I...
