Hiking without knowing where the heck you’re going is my one of my favorite things to do (ill-advised though it may be). On my last trip to Colorado, the game plan was to drive toward some tall mountains and see what happened. We ended up in Idaho Springs, a quaint old mining town, then winded our way even higher up towards a few trails. All I wanted was to get to a peak, and peak we did on Chief Mountain. It was breathtaking […]
I got to go on quick tour of Downtown Denver a few weeks ago. The city is littered with art and interesting architecture–which I love! Here are some of my findings. (Keep your eyes open for similarities I photographed between some of the structures and my mesh sneakers.) Dancers is a steel and fiberglass statue by Jonathan Borofsky. The couple stands outside of the Denver Performing Arts Complex. It was created in an effort to demonstrate, “everything is connected and all is […]
Devil’s Backbone Nature Trail near Loveland, Colorado is quite the sight. The protruding rocks poking their jagged edges along the hillside tell an old story that only geology is able to share. It doesn’t look too shabby dressed in fall, does it?!
Well it’s fall y’all, or as I like to call it–the season for idiots to walk around dirty cities in a pair of white pants. I’m wearing some Pilcro flares and my new favorite top. I’d like to think it’s modeled after the ewoks’ hoodies. From Pittsburgh to Chicago, I’ll be the idiot breaking the no-white-after-labor-day-rule with an appropriately named beer in hand.
This was the first time I’ve spent much time in Brooklyn. Ya know, it feels a lot like Chicago (with a great bonus view of Manhattan). That being said, I really enjoyed it! On this trip, I busted out my Winter Roshes and a Nike Dry Fit Hoodie.
Welcome to New York, my friends! I just made my yearly trip to the bustling city of Manhattan. It never gets old because you can never run out of art to see and miles to walk. After exploring Chelsea Market, I visited the High Line for the first time. That’s the linear park built on an abandoned elevated railroad. It was really cool to see a space so thoughtfully repurposed and turned into a haven for nature amidst the sea of […]
I have thus declared October my adventure month of 2015. I’ll be traveling so much that I want to soak up what little time I have in Chicago. It’s been quite lovely here–I just had to share these shots with you. Now off I go! (p.s. Happy 500th Post from for-the-love-of-nike!!!!!)
The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is the world’s tallest arch. Isn’t that nuts?! They built this sucker in the mid 60s and plopped it right on the edge of the Mississipi River. Back then it cost $13 million to construct. That’s equivalent to $180 million these days. When I finally saw the arch in person, the first thing I thought of was someone trying to climb it or fly through the darn thing. Which has actually happened. Some maniac […]
Milwaukee Art Museum is currently featuring an exhibit of Modern Rebels who were game changers in the world of fine arts. You’re probably familiar with most of them. A short list of the 68 master makers includes Frida, Pollock, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalí, Miró, & Lichtenstein. It’s so wonderful to walk through works from around 1900 to 1960, and view each piece as a stepping stone in the timeline until now. Strong vibes of surrealism, cubism, Fauvism, and abstraction all staring each […]
I can’t believe Labor Day has come and gone. My grip has yet to loosen on summer 2015. At least I starting saying my goodbyes to my favorite season with friends. We went to Kentucky Lake, drank too much, ate good food, swam a bit, and cruised around. Remember the Tee I sported last week? Take a look at that same shirt styled another way with a few more designs. Check ‘em out here! And don’t forget my favorite flip flops of […]
