Bruiser is my favorite and a favorite for a lot of little…

Royal Gorge Bridge and Park

Royal Gorge Bridge and Park

Adventure is making a comeback! One of the world’s highest suspension bridges, Royal Canyon bridge, hangs high above the Arkansas River, in a 360 acre park. The bridge was constructed starting back in 1929 and has been a favorite tourist attraction in Colorado since. I was surprised to learn while visiting that a lot of original buildings and attractions were no longer at the park.  A wildfire swept through the area in June 2013 destroying much of the park but…

Some girls are made of barley and hops…

What’s better than babes and beer?!? Well….we can’t think of anything!!! So after a couple days in nature land, with little to no contact with other human beings, we decided it was time to face civilization yet again…see if we still excelled at socializing and drinking. You know the important things in life.  I’m happy to report back that we still got it!  To test our drinking and social abilities we headed to cute and quaint Fort Collins. They are…

Flagstaff Mountain

Flagstaff Mountain

Best views from Boulder you ask?!?  Hands down venture to Flagstaff Mountain and enjoy the glorious scenery. The great thing about Flagstaff Mountain is..if you’re feeling lazy or just simply feeling the effects of the elevation, you don’t have to hike it, you can drive it.  And welp that’s exactly what I did.  It’s a fun twisting turning drive with lots of spots to get out of the car and take pics. And a day pass only sets you back…

Hike So Hard: Flatirons Edition

Hike So Hard: Flatirons Edition

I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees. -Henry David Thoreau Ok, so let’s just reflect on the fact that Colorado is amazing. The people here are so active that I feel rather lazy next to them. They’re like superhuman or at the very least they’re drinking/eating some power fruit/berry that the rest of us on this planet, just simply, don’t know about. They need to let us in on their little secret!! Anyways,…

The House that Rubber Built

The House that Rubber Built

Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens is such an overwhelmingly peaceful estate sitting on 70 acres of pristine land in Akron, Ohio. You’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into the past when you visit this historical landmark. And if you’re  anything like me you’ll be trying to figure out ways you can move on in without anyone noticing!! *Unfortunately this is all together impossible since the estate has daily tours in which visitors explore the house, but a girl can still…
