~ 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.

Essential Oils: Experimenting with Ancient Medicine

My experimenting with essential oils first began when a prenatal yoga teacher suggested I try them.

We rounded the final bend and slowly crossed the bridge spanning the Yampa River. Juniper Hot Springs was dead ahead of us.
