Top Things to Do in Burlington

The City of Burlington, located along I-70 on the eastern edge of Colorado, was established in 1888. Small towns (which Burlington remains today) were needed along the Rock Island Railroad track during its construction. Burlington was set to become a junction town; but additional railroad track was never laid. Agriculture is the heart of Burlington’s economy and …

Mile High Stadium Salute

Anyone who spends time in Denver – heck, in all of Colorado – knows the Denver Broncos and Mile High Stadium are the biggest thing in town. In this post, we pay homage to the defending Super Bowl champions by giving them the Mile High Salute! And if Terrell Davis gets slighted once again on …

Sharptail Ridge Open Space (What is Open Space Anyway?)

Fresh Colorado air and blue skies. Not a car in the parking lot. No one in sight.  Perfect! The Sharptail Ridge Open Space, located just south of Denver next to Roxborough State Park, was as it should be – serene. I couldn’t wait to lace up my boots and take a quiet stroll through undisturbed …

Happy 70th Birthday Arapahoe Basin

Arapahoe Basin – Above Treeline Arapahoe Basin Ski Area is one of the most unique ski and snowboard resorts in Colorado.

Just a shadow of its former glory – but one of Colorado’s most isolated and lesser frequented hot springs – Juniper Hot Springs was ours for the taking that early October day. Liz, …

Welcome to Stella’s Coffee Haus on Denver’s South Pearl Street

Stella’s Coffee Haus Front Porch I love the aroma of coffee. If I have a vice, the sweet, sweet nectar of the coffee bean most definitely has to be it! And Stella’s Coffee Haus has long been one of my favorite stops in Denver. While the coffee is quite good, it’s really the atmosphere I …

Dinosaur National Monument, Part III: Ghostly Yampa Bench Road

Harding Hole Overlook Entrance We inched our way through two feet of palpable red earth soup entering the Harding Hole Overlook. It hadn’t rained in over four unseasonably hot fall days. Yet, standing pools of mud from a strong storm nearly a week earlier proved resilient. The park ranger we met in Echo Park said …
