I’ve been a resident of Colorado now for over 5 years – I’m happy to call Denver home! I chose to make Colorado my new home base because it was new to me and I felt like I wanted a place I could explore.  I’ve spent the last 5 years doing just that…exploring all over Colorado whenever I could.  I hit the hiking trails, horse trails, visited National Parks, summited 14ers, trained through the state, snowshoed, biked, and rafted through the Rocky Mountains.  If you are looking to travel to Colorado – here’s my best articles full of advice, maps, ideas, activities, food, drink, and more!
