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

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

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

July 2017: Wichita Falls, TX

July’s Resolution Destination was one that we had little control over. Working as an aircraft mechanic at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado, Cameron had little say when he was told that he was required to spend six weeks at a training course in Wichita Falls, TX (apparently it takes six weeks to learn how… Continue reading July 2017: Wichita Falls, TX

June 2017: Riviera Maya, Mexico

What better way to celebrate 5-months of sticking to our New Year’s resolution than a 5-night getaway to sunny Mexico! After being thwarted by a May blizzard that prevented us from reaching Saratoga Hot Springs, our June destination was the perfect way to bounce back. We had discussed a Mexico trip for months, and at… Continue reading June 2017: Riviera Maya, Mexico

May 2017: Saratoga Hot Springs

Springtime in the Rockies. Birds chirping, flowers blooming, new life blossoming all around and warmer temperatures…. Unless it’s May 2017, when Cameron and Corrie are trying to drive up to Wyoming for their Resolution Destination at Saratoga Hot Springs. Then it’s time for a blizzard! Months earlier as Corrie was doing her daily perusing of Groupon… Continue reading May 2017: Saratoga Hot Springs

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
