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

April 2017: Georgetown Loop Railroad

Many people drive right by April’s Resolution Destination without ever noticing it. And if you’ve ever driven up I-70 to Summit County, then you may have too. Having driven I-70 more times than we can count, and through word of mouth, we were aware of the Georgetown Loop Railroad and thought it could be a… Continue reading April 2017: Georgetown Loop Railroad

March 2017: The Royal Gorge

DAY 1 By March our bond had grown strong and we were really beginning to hit our stride as a couple. We were comfortable with each other in ways that told us we could be more adventurous and push our Resolution Destination boundaries by extending our travel distance and perhaps even include an overnight stay… Continue reading March 2017: The Royal Gorge

February 2017: The Wild Animal Sanctuary

Our second Resolution Destination led us to take a walk on the wild side (yeah, we just said that). We were still feeling like staying a little bit closer to home was the smart thing to do, but we also wanted to do something a little more out of the ordinary and hopefully exciting. Corrie… Continue reading February 2017: The Wild Animal Sanctuary

January 2017: The Denver Aquarium

As with many new resolutions, you’re often left wondering where to even start. This can make progress a little slow at first. In January of 2017, we had been dating for just a couple of months and we were still getting to know each other and find our comfort zone. This made traveling to destinations… Continue reading January 2017: The Denver Aquarium
