Devil’s Overlook and Chasm View

(Part three of the Black Canyon series) A little drive down the South Rim of Black Canyon, you come along two view points. The first: Devil’s Overlook. And the second is Chasm View Both view points are short walks away from the main road. You really should stop at these two! Devil’s Overlook was definitely …

Rim Rock Trail

Okay. So I kind of took a break for a second, partially because work has been crazy and taking a lot out of me, but also because I’ve been trying to figure out how to post my pics from Black Canyon. There are too many pics for one post, but too few pictures for multiple …

Haiyaha, Nymph, Bear

Yes. There are that many lakes along the Emerald Lake Trail. 5 all together. Definitely visit all 5. They’re beautiful. Here is the last of this magnificent trail: Trail: Lake Haiyaha, 3.9 mi round trip Park: Rocky Mountain National Park Location: Estes Park, CO Difficulty: Moderate Incline: 865 ft Shade and Seating: Most of the …

Emerald Lake, CO

I took a week off from the blog. Much to my dismay, I got sick. So instead of staring at my computer screen, or going outside, I slept and watched Halloween movies all weekend. The weather is getting cooler, and I’m wondering what I’m going to do with myself during the winter months! I might …

Dream Lake

We’re continually waking up in the dead of night to make it out to Rocky Mountain National Park. Actually, as I’m writing this, we’re staying in a hotel out in Gunnison. We head out to Black Canyon National Park tomorrow, leaving around 4 am…I’ll catch up on sleep in the winter, don’t worry. We just …

Sky Pond

Continuing on from last week’s post, we’ve finally made it to one of the coldest but most rewarding hikes I’ve done in a while….Sky Pond! If you don’t know, I posted a hike last week that essentially made up the beginning half of this hike, so go check out that post here for more information! …

The Loch

We did a hike that was very beautiful but a little on the long side. In fact, it’s such a long trail, there are actually 3 other trails within the trail with amazing end points. I took soo many photos during this hike, I decided to split it in half so I wouldn’t overload this …

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; …
