Hiking Boulder’s Marvelous Mesa Trail

March 12th, 2020

The Mesa Trail is the kind of trail where you’ll want to keep your eyes open. It’s a trail where you’ll get incredible views of the Flatirons and a chance to see a lot of wildlife. Other than the dogs you will probably see on the trail (because the trail is dog-friendly), you’ll see falcons, songbirds, coyotes, deer, and red-tailed hawks. Black bears and mountain lions have also been spotted in this area as well, but it’s highly unlikely that you’ll encounter either of these ferocious beasts on your trip to the Mesa trail. The trail itself runs along the base... Read More

Coot Lake: Your Favorite New Place for an Afternoon Walk

March 10th, 2020

Colorado has a lot of mountains, and sometimes you may want something a bit more relaxing than scaling the flatirons. That’s what Coot Lake is for. It’s a flat lake area that houses coots, mallards, and lots of other ducks. A lot of the lake actually acts as a wildlife preserve for wetland species, so expect to see a fair amount of ducks and birds. You may even see a Northern Harrier, which is the most threatened nesting bird species in Boulder County. It’s also a very popular gathering place for dog walkers and runners, who can be seen pacing the trails in the area. Although,... Read More

You can’t go to school forever though (although many of my 5th year graduate friends are currently skeeming ways to stay in school). Graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder means many things. You’ve graduated from one of America’s most... Read More

6 Tips for Buying a Home as a Vacation Rental in Colorado

January 6th, 2020

Buying a house you intend to rent out is very different than buying one you plan to live in. This is especially the case if you’re planning on making it a vacation rental.

So, how do you know you are investing in a property people will want to spend their vacations in?

U.S. to Spend $3 Million on Research for CBD and Pain

September 21st, 2019

The U.S. government intends on spending $3 million on research for CBD; none of the money will be spent on the THC counterpart which gets you high. Nine research grants have been approved that research CBD in everything from food to beauty products, along with some other lesser known chemicals, but THC was specifically excluded from the funding. Many find this to be an incomplete analysis of marijuana and pain management, as it is still unclear exactly what part of the plant may be helpful in pain management. This also inhibits the ability to discover whether pain can be managed without the intoxicating... Read More
