It’s getting hot in here!

May 30th, 2018

Denver is heating up fast.  The past few days of temperatures have been in the high 80’s…and this is only May.  We know a few miles away in the still snow-capped mountains there is relief usually in the range of about 20 degrees cooler, if you need a break from the heat in the summer.  Oddly enough, some go hunting for something even hotter up there…and that is hot springs, for their health!  Hot springs are bodies of water that are warmed geothermally and occur naturally, and Colorado is full of them.  What’s so great about hot springs?  Read on and find out!   What are hot... Read More

Glenwood Springs

March 31st, 2018

If you need some last minute spring break plans, Glenwood Springs is only two hours from Denver and has plenty to keep you busy for a few days. Here’s our 2 day itinerary: On your first day, get your adrenaline junkie ass to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

Here are some Colorado must-do’s close to Denver. Relax in some Hot Springs How would you like to soak in natural hot springs in an underground cave? Indian Springs is just an hour west of Denver.

The pools are carved into the rock and filled... Read More

3-Day Road Trip Adventure:  Day 3–Pagosa Springs

November 16th, 2017

If you’re looking for a place for relaxation then Pagosa Springs is a great choice.  It is a small-quaint town with a lot of personality.  It’s about a 5-hour drive (one-way) from Denver with glorious scenic views along the way but only a 3-hour drive from Ouray, where I had started my journey to Pagosa Springs.  This was my last stop to my three day Colorado road trip and I was looking forward to a little pampering.   Things to Do: The Springs Resort and Spa (Hot Springs):  Enjoy their 18 hot springs pool with varying temperature degrees for just $26 (adults) and $14 (child). ... Read More

3-Day Colorado Road Trip Adventure: Day 2–Ouray

November 9th, 2017

Day two of my 3-Day road trip set me off to Ouray, also known as the Switzerland of America.  I decided to stop at their Visitor Center on Main Street (worth the stop).  I was assisted by Heidi who was very helpful and provided me with a map of the area that showed the streets of the town and Perimeter trail, a 5.9 mile trail that wraps around this tiny quaint city.  She marked on the map must see sights throughout the trail such as Cascade Falls and Box Canyon Falls, she also shared the shortcuts to each location if I didn’t desire to hike the entire trail. Since I wanted to make most... Read More
