Eldorado Canyon

There’s a state park out by Boulder called Eldorado Canyon. I feel like it’s less talked about, mostly because the people I work with who’ve been in Colorado their whole lives don’t know much about the park. Which is a shame, because it’s got some spectacular views.. Trail: Rattlesnake Gulch Trail Park: Eldorado Canyon State …

Sunflowers and Kayaks

I’ve got more of a chilled post for you today! Not a hike (I really needed time to recover from the week before), but still nature related! Okay, first thing I want to say is that there are so many ways to get to the Denver Airport. My bestie and I are a little strange; …

Herman Gulch

Still jamming to T.Swift, if anyone cares to know.. This week I’ve got Herman Gulch Trail locked and loaded for you! Now, on first impressions looking this trail up on the internet, it doesn’t seem like a super picturesque hike. But all of my expectations were blown out of the water because it was honestly …

Garden of the Gods

I’m currently writing this as I’m jamming out to Taylor Swift’s new album, Lover. It’s amazing, and I don’t care what you think. I may have listened to it non-stop for 3 days now….probably dozens of times all the way through. I wanted to try something new. For the most part my posts are about …

Paint Mines

Hey, there! Welcome to what seems to be my weekly hike post. Maybe I should make this a thing? Well this week I’ve got the Paint Mines locked and loaded for you! So the Paint Mines are located about an hour and a half southeast of Denver. We easily made a morning trip of it. …

Emerald Pools

The third and final installation of my Zion’s series ends with the Emerald Pools. I have to say that this is one of the most refreshing hikes you can possibly do in Zion National Park. There are a few trailheads surrounding the Emerald Pools that range from about a mile to 3 miles. We stuck …

Weeping Rock

Let’s continue down my little Zion’s saga. In-between the stops from the Riverside Trail and our next destination, Weeping Rock, there is Stop 8. Stop 8 is definitely worth getting off and taking a quick look around yourselves. The landscape is unbeatable. And you get a really cool view of the base of Angel’s Landing. …

Riverside Walk

Something I’ve been dying to get to, but hadn’t had the time to do yet are all of my photos from Zion’s National Park. If you have never been, you need to get your butt down there. Zion’s is definitely one of my favorite parks. We didn’t get to spend a whole lot of time …

St. Mary’s Glacier

One of the many wonderful reasons to live in Colorado is the superfluous amount of hikes. Right next to Denver you have so many national and state parks! (We’re even planning on getting some annual passes). Even outside of the parks, there are many gems scattered around the foothills and nooks of the mountains. We …

Fragrant Fields

Hi, there! Remember me? I used to write on this blog. It’s been a while, but I’m back at it! I’ve been adjusting to my new living situation, and I’m starting to finally feel settled enough that I can rejoin the blogging realm. In case you didn’t know, I moved out of Utah! I’ve been …
