May 2018: Devil’s Head Fire Lookout Sunrise Hike

Springtime in Colorado can be magical. New life blooms everywhere with trees and flowers awakening (the exception being the dead tree in our own backyard). We get rounds of wild weather that produce everything from rain to hail to snow. We get a renewed passion for the great outdoors. And the sun starts rising earlier.… Continue reading May 2018: Devil’s Head Fire Lookout Sunrise Hike

April 2018: Calhan Paint Mines

One part of Colorado that tends to get neglected by activity and adventure seekers is the eastern plains. Out-of-staters and residents alike often think the state is comprised only of mountains. The areas east of Denver might as well be Kansas. Admittedly, we tend to think that way as well because we are as in… Continue reading April 2018: Calhan Paint Mines

March 2018: DAGAR Downtown Art Gallery & Axe Room

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that we do not have to do something far from our own backyard for our Resolution Destinations. After all, the whole point is just to see and try new things that we haven’t experienced before. There’s no rule that says we have to go far to find that. So,… Continue reading March 2018: DAGAR Downtown Art Gallery & Axe Room

February 2018: Colorado Wolf Sanctuary & Phantom Canyon

When the question of what to do for our February destination was raised, we both agreed to do some internet research and discuss it later after work. It took Cameron about ten minutes to excitedly text Corrie back and ask if we could go to the Colorado Wolf Sanctuary and Phantom Canyon.  Both of these… Continue reading February 2018: Colorado Wolf Sanctuary & Phantom Canyon

January 2018: Glenwood Springs by Train

To celebrate living up to our 2017 New Year’s resolution we decided to keep it going in 2018. Well it wasn’t really a decision, it’s become an important part of our relationship and without a second thought we picked and planned a new experience for January 2018. January also happens to be Corrie’s birth month… Continue reading January 2018: Glenwood Springs by Train

December 2017: Denver Zoo lights & Georgetown Christmas Market

When the calendar flips to December its Christmas time in our minds! We are not the type of people to put our decorations up immediately after Thanksgiving or Halloween, we’re not that eager. But to celebrate the start of the season we decided, at the last minute, to attend an event that neither us ever… Continue reading December 2017: Denver Zoo lights & Georgetown Christmas Market

November 2017: Haunted Tour at Stanley Hotel

Anyone who grew up in Boulder has probably been to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park; but not everyone, Corrie and Cameron included, has taken the Haunted Tour of the hotel. Corrie deserves all the credit for this little adventure! She planned and booked the trip, simply informing Cameron after the fact that we had… Continue reading November 2017: Haunted Tour at Stanley Hotel

October 2017: Saratoga, WY

Back in May we had tried to venture up to Saratoga, WY to enjoy a few days hiking and relaxing in the hot springs. Unfortunately, our plans were thwarted by a spring blizzard and we were not able to make it (despite our best efforts to outsmart the storm). That made October’s Resolution Destination that much sweeter,… Continue reading October 2017: Saratoga, WY

September 2017: Pikes Peak Regional Airshow

For September’s Resolution Destination we decided to stay local. After a couple of months of what felt like endless travel back and forth between Texas and Colorado, we were looking for something a little less expensive and with little travel time September also happens to be Cameron’s Dad’s birthday month. Cameron’s Dad is a big… Continue reading September 2017: Pikes Peak Regional Airshow

August 2017: Dallas, TX

With Cameron still stuck in Wichita Falls for training, our August Resolution Destination would again have to be found somewhere in Northern Texas. Having limited choices, Dallas became the most obvious place to seek adventure. The city has tons of world class restaurants, museums and attractions; and it was the easiest city for Corrie to… Continue reading August 2017: Dallas, TX
