“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” -Eleanor Roosevelt Sometimes you just gotta get away and recharge your batteries.

Row Row Row Your Boat

In the spring of 2020, I started to realize that summer was going to look a little differently as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. No goofy Water World trips with friends. No lazy days at the pool.

Camping Season is Here!

Last month, I had the opportunity to camp in the Fourmile Recreation Area near Buena Vista, Colorado. My first time camping here and I absolutely loved it!

Boy, I'm starting to feel like I'm in a confessional. Haha. Anyway, I have had some changes to both... Continue Reading →

Kenosha Pass

Autumn is alive in the mountains of Colorado and one of my favorite spots for leaf peeping (along with everyone else in Denver) is Kenosha Pass about an hour from Denver on route 285. Some helpful tips: 1. Drop everything you are doing and go now! Seriously, the aspens are peaking! 2. Use the restroom... Continue Reading →

On Monday I summited Mt. Elbert solo, Colorado's highest peak at 14,440 ft. Less than a week later, I returned with Aaron to tackle Elbert's next door neighbor, Mt. Massive, Colorado's second highest peak at 14,421 ft. ⭐️Check out my previous blog post about my Mt. Elbert adventure. As I mentioned in my previous post,... Continue Reading →
