Trout Steak Revival at the Gothic Theatre

The college kid who maneuvered into a seat next to us was a fanatic for Trout Steak Revival. He was so pumped about the show, speaking at us a million miles a minute about how great the band was. His enthusiasm was sorta endearing. Trout Steak Revival @ the Gothic Theatre Well…when Trout Steak Revival began playing, …

The Butterfly Pavilion: Colorado’s Insect Zoo

Years ago, Josh and I went on a date to the Butterfly Pavilion. We took what seemed like a million photographs, but that was before digital cameras. We were shooting blind back then – not knowing whether the butterflies’ delicate wings flapped and made our photos blurry. What a difference fifteen years makes. This visit, …

70 Degrees in February: Unseasonal Colorado Winter Days

It doesn’t require much more than a seventy-degree day in February to convince me to take the day off work and spend time with my daughter, ZB. (Only in Colorado! As they say: “Don’t like the weather? Wait a little while.”) What a life…discovering the world at nearly 2 years old. Everything is cool and …

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool Feels Like Heaven

Brunch it up at duo Restaurant in LoHi

I understand the Denver brunch craze. And I certainly contribute to it. I am not ashamed. Brunch is definitely thebest type of meal for my soul – with plenty of hygge. (That’s Danish for a feeling of coziness, a mood of comfort and community.) Although known for its dinner menu, brunch at duo Restaurant did …

Essential Oils: Experimenting with Ancient Medicine

My experimenting with essential oils first began when a prenatal yoga teacher suggested I try them. I added them to my homemade vinegar cleaning solution, diffused them in the air, and put a drop of lavender on the underside of my pillow. But I was nervous. I knew that essential oils are potent and powerful. …

Donate to Colorado Public Radio on Colorado Gives Day

Growing up in rural Colorado, many hours were spent navigating the washboard dirt roads between my house and town. I fondly recall sitting next to my father as a child in his tan 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser (aka the Beast) with the radio cranked up and a dust plume behind us. The dial was always …

Yoga at Glenwood Springs’ Providence Apothecary

I can still smell the sweet scent of vanilla and lavender from Providence Apothecary as I write this. Knowing that I would be visiting Glenwood Springs, I searched for a drop-in yoga class.
