~ Wanderlust in the Centennial State ~

Tour around the Centennial State with us. Josh is a native son and big fan of pack burro racing, and Liz got to Steamboat Springs as fast as her parents could get there (25+ years ago). Together, we have over 60 years of experience traversing Colorado. In addition to the two of us, we have assembled a deeply passionate, knowledgeable, and talented team of Colorado travel bloggers.
Get out and explore Colorado!

Union Station Connects Denver to the World

Union Station is the primary railway station and transportation hub in Denver, Colorado. It is located at Wynkoop Street and 17th in the Lower Downtown (LoDo) district. Union Station’s eateries, shops, and hotel are world class. We took the afternoon to enjoy just some of what it has to offer. Denver’s Union Station While we rode the light …

Strike it Rich Along the Gold Belt Byway

We teetered on the edge of Shelf Road. Traces of gold started to appear all around us in the aspen groves. Our hearts were lodged halfway up our throats while we passed cars headed the opposite direction. We bounced down the narrow road etched into the canyon’s precipice, and we knew we were in the …

Settle into Savasana at Samadhi Yoga in Uptown

Yoga studios are sprinkled throughout the Denver metro area, but one of my favorites is Samadhi Center for Yoga in Uptown. When you walk inside, you are immediately overcome with a sense of comforting peace.  A little sitting area beckons early birds.

The Sun is Shining on Hot Sulphur Springs

Peering Down at Hot Sulphur Springs’ Soaking Pools The sun’s shining, the weather is sweet, yeah…the day’s late August temps are in the low 70s…and we’re feeling good. Some reggae beats in the background are imploring us to get outside. It’s time to hightail it over to Hot Sulphur Springs for an afternoon soak. Hot …

Colorado Camping (how I almost went down in a burning ring of fire)

Rocky Mountain High Liz and I retraced our steps to one of our favorite Colorado camping locations in South Park this last weekend. We originally found it in 2003 when we thru-hiked the Colorado Trail. We typically return at least once a year to car camp. Surrounded by the mountain air and majesty that make …

Red Rocks Amphitheatre Ignites Under the Denver Sky

Ryan Adams and Kurt Vile rocked Red Rocks Amphitheatre last week. Ryan Adams mixed it up between new and old material. Kurt Vile, who opened, showed just why he’s currently getting so much acclaim. But Red Rocks Amphitheatre – in its typical fashion – stole the show. That’s not a knock on Adams or Vile …

My Old Homemade Truck Camper (R.I.P. Ford Ranger!)

I retired my 2004 Ford Ranger in November of 2015. I now traverse Colorado in my Tacoma, but I’ll always have fond memories of my first truck. This is an ode – albeit far too brief – to the decade-long partnership we shared together. There were our times bouncing through the red rock canyons of …

Last Call of the Season to Visit the Kit Carson County Carousel

My grandmother (“Gram”) is one of my favorite people on earth. She was born at the beginning of the Great Depression and survived the Dust Bowl. Her family moved from western Kansas to Burlington, Colorado when she was child, and she is a proud graduate of Burlington High School. Historic Burlington As a youth, Gram …

The Denver Flea: An Afternoon at the Market in City Park

Earlier this week, some friends were talking about going to the Denver Flea. I hadn’t heard about it before, but I love garage saling and thrift store shopping so I decided to head out to City Park – the location of the 10th market – this weekend with my little one, ZB. The Denver Flea …
