November 17th, 2018
Hempsgiving

Thanksgiving is next week and there are several of us who will be shopping for foods this weekend, and all next week, leading up to the big day! We all know the classic casseroles, stuffings, and desserts, but have you considered adding hemp foods to your menu? For some, hemp foods can be new to cook with, and there isn’t a lot of direction for how to add hemp to your Thanksgiving, until now! Hemp foods are gaining popularity, and becoming much easier to find in stores. Hempsgiving was recently held in Denver, where every item on the menu featured some sort of hemp. The event was such a success,... Read More

6 Essentials for Summiting Colorado 14ers in the Fall

Hiking 14ers in the Autumn Season in Colorado

Hiking 14ers in Colorado has become popular to say the least.  Often while hiking to a summit I see a family with kids in tow, donning t-shirts, shorts, water bottles, and maybe a few rain jackets spread amongst them.  That is great and really during the summer, without storms in the forecast, that’s about all you need. Many of the 14ers are so heavily trafficked that new easy to access trails have been built and even if you did run into problems the likelihood that someone would be by to help within a matter of minutes is pretty high.  These summer sumits are great but some of us want... Read More

The carefree days of summer are almost over.  Long, lazy days in the sun with weekend travel and spontaneous adventures will soon turn, like the autumn leaves, to a more even paced fall and winter routine.  For many of us, the fall means transitioning to gym workouts if we exercise primarily outdoors in the summer.  Whatever fall exercise means to you, it can be hard to slip into the rhythm and momentum of cooler weather workouts. Let’s look at a few ways to help you think about your fall fitness routine. Don’t be too hard on yourself. It takes baby steps to get back to a fitness routine,... Read More

Autumn Is Good For You

October 18th, 2017

It’s that time of year – the sun comes up a little later; goes down a little earlier and you need a jacket or sweater to combat the slight nip in the air. Fall brings with it the promise of rain and cooler temperatures. Its rhythms remind us that it’s time to turn inside, ruminate and care for ourselves. Take advantage of the change of season to make some changes to your routine; following the rhythm of the seasons, makes us less likely to get sick.

Fish Creek Falls Hiking- Steamboat Springs

September 30th, 2017

Fall is here, the air is crisp, and the leaves are changing quickly. This is the perfect time of year to plan a hike in Steamboat Springs. The one I highly suggest is Fish Creek Falls. Fish Creek Falls is only 4.4 miles outside town. It is actually a 283-foot waterfall in a state park. Because this is a state park be prepared to pay $5 per vehicle or bring your state park pass. Once you park, you will have a few options for hikes- easy, moderate, hard. All hikes are dog friendly, which is great news for your furry friends. The lower falls are also handicap accessible! Fish Creek Falls Trail is... Read More

I drove up to Steamboat on Thursday for a bachelorette party. And let me tell you…the drive was gorgeous!

Below you will find five reasons you should visit steamboat before the first snowfall and one reason you should visit once the snow comes. Fall is in full swing- Awe yes. It is that time of year when temperatures start cooling off, which causes the leaves to change colors. Just looking out my window, I see gold everywhere. It is breath taking. The air is cool and... Read More

Autumn Is A Time for Change

October 12th, 2016

We’ve all noticed that the sun rises later each day this time of year.  We see the change in the weather and make the accompanying changes in our food and clothing choices.  The autumn season is all about change – the leaves, the weather, our habits. Seasonal mood shifts often include less energy, feeling less social, cravings for carbs and changes in sleep habits, partly due to the change in exposure to daylight.  In the Western world, we talk about our circadian clock. The circadian clock monitors changes in day length and tells us when to feel sleepy and when to wake up and... Read More
