As we drove down the switchbacks of Berthoud Pass I pointed out Winter Park ski hill to my friend Lynn. We both looked at the little ant-like people coming down the runs and kept driving. Even though Colorado has had one of their best early snow seasons that had everyone flocking to the slopes in […]

Even though I moved to Denver in June of 2017, I actually feel like I’ve only been here a few months. I’m still trying to get to know my new city and find some balance in my life of travel and work. As you’ve likely noticed if you follow my social media (and you should […]

You have to love a place that sits where the road ends. I think that’s what made Crested Butte Colorado so special to me, it sits at the base of the mountains with only one road in and out. The main road through the town of Crested Butte eventually just ends outside of town when […]

I stare out my window in Denver at the snow-covered mountains and sigh in defeat. I am tired of being scared and intimidated by the idea of driving in winter conditions. The mountains were calling me; “Sherry, come play…”. I’m not a skier. And yes, I know that makes my move to Colorado an odd […]

I was daydreaming at 30,000 feet; thinking about my apartment, my bed, what I had in my refrigerator, my yoga mat, and what I was going to have for breakfast while listening to NPR tomorrow morning at my table.

Once upon a time a bored girl went chasing rabbits in Colorado. Her curiosity and penchant for adventure led her into a mountainous world of intriguing people, mesmerizing views, and unusual dimensions.
