~ 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!

Snowmass’ Spiral Point Hike Will Take Your Breath Away

The Spiral Point Hike is simply unforgettable. I accompanied Liz to her annual conference in Snowmass Village last year and took full advantage of the experience. The absolute highlight of my trip was hiking up to Spiral Point. The trek from the hotel, the Westin Snowmass Resort, was about 2.25 miles from the foot of …

Soakin’ It Up at Strawberry Park Hot Springs

Colorado boasts hot springs aplenty, and last weekend, I had the pleasure of soaking at one of the best – Strawberry Park Hot Springs. It had been about a decade (maybe even more!) since I last headed up the mountain. The drive through Strawberry Park was as beautiful as ever, with the hayfields and rolling ridges. Sunrays …

Welcome to Steamboat Springs’ Mountain Tap Brewery

The Mountain Tap Brewery is a welcome addition to Steamboat Springs’ brewery scene. Sure there are other fish in town, but they seem to be lacking one of two essential elements: 1) location or 2) quality craft brew.  Mountain Tap Brewery has both (and great pizza to top it off!!!). Mountain Tap Brewery Located at …

Parading Through the Town of Grand Lake

Welcome to the “Western Gateway” to Rocky Mountain National Park. Like its eastern counterpart, Estes Park, Grand Lake is geared towards the tens of thousands of visitors that pass through its belly. And we fell hook, line, and sinker into its quaint tourist gravitational pull. It’s a destination unto itself, but I would guess that …

Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox Offers Refreshing Reverbs

Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox knocked our socks off last week! The centenarian grit of the exterior, interior fine finishes, sounds from the stage, and delicacies from the chef still reverberate in my mind.  Ophelia’s is the newest creation of chef and restaurateur Justin Cucci, who is also known for Linger and Root Down. Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox Let’s start …

On the High Road of Denver’s High Line Canal Trail

I took to the trail – the High Line Canal Trail – to escape the hustle and bustle of Denver. The best part is that I didn’t have to go very far (it runs right through the heart of Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Greenwood Village, Centennial, Cherry Hills Village, and Highlands Ranch). The puppies were eager …

Celebrate Life with a Dinner Club

Years ago, I worked for a judge who, along with his wife and several other couples, belonged to a Gourmet Group as they called it – a sort of dinner club. The group rotated between houses, with the host making an extravagant meal. They even compiled cookbooks full of their favorite recipes. The Gourmet Group is still …
