Go Back In Time On The Trail Through Time In Colorado

Before I get into this, there are a few things you should know about me relating to this: I LOVE dinosaurs.  All things dinosaur, I love. I own two Jurassic Park shirts and wear them when I see dinosaur things. I've made it a goal to see as many dinosaur things in Utah as I…

Coke Ovens And The Devils Kitchen In Colorado National Monument

Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction, Colorado is a hidden gem.  I had heard of it my first summer working in Bullfrog, but I knew literally nothing about it until maybe a week before I went.  Turns out, I love it!  I won't lie, I don't really like Grand Junction.  The food options aren't great. …

Devils Backbone: An Easy Hike In Loveland, Colorado

While I wouldn't say it's the best hike in Colorado, Devils Backbone in Loveland is a nice way to do a little hiking without straying too far from a city.  This hike is easy, conveniently located, and has a good view of the surrounding area.  Whether you are looking for a nice after work walk…

Underwhelmed At Mesa Verde National Park

There are affiliate links in here.   That title is just the start of a glowing review, right?  Ehh, not really.  But, I keep things real here and that means I'm here to tell you I didn't love Mesa Verde.  That's not to say it's not cool at all, I just enjoyed it less than other…

Great Sand Dunes National Park Colorado

Hiking Great Sand Dunes National Park In Colorado

This was one of the most difficult physical things I've done.  Sound ridiculous, right?  I mean, I climbed a volcano, I've hiked to Delicate Arch, I've snowshoed on the side of a mountain, and I couldn't make it to the top of one of these dunes.  Well, I need to get in shape.  Great Sand…

Return to Rocky Mountain National Park

I went back to Rocky Mountain National Park!  And this time I knew what to expect.  It was the end of November, and we were on our way back to Utah, then Wyoming for the winter.  The Rockies were our last exciting stop before starting work again.  We set off from Fort Collins with mountains…

Unexpected Snow in Rocky Mountain National Park

I get how ridiculous that sounds.  We didn't expect snow in the Rockies?  Well, I guess we sort of did, but not that much.  The roads were clear, which was or main concern as Meredith isn't really made for that.  I think this is where I introduce Meredith, my Smart car.  I love her, but…

Garden Of The Gods: Hiking In Colorado Springs

There are affiliate links in here.   With a two hour drive ahead of us to Colorado Springs, we didn't even get up surprisingly early.  After a coffee stop, we were on our way to the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.  Neither of us really knew what to expect.  We thought natural sort of…
