I recently took a quick weekend trip to Cancún to celebrate my cousin’s wedding. It was absolutely breathtaking. If you’re visiting, I urge you to get up for the sunrise–even if you want to sleep in–it’s well worth it. Because of the white sands, the water reflects the sky so brilliantly.
Fort Collins is a mecca for beer lovers and outdoor adventurers. After white water rafting down the Cache la Poudre River, we hit up a few of the local establishments. Funkwerks, had a great grapefruit Belgian IPA called Trendy AF Snowbank, who had a New England IPA New Belgium, and tried out La Folie for the first time
Red Rocks Park is just 10 miles outside the city center of Denver, Colorado. These iconic red sandstone structures are home to an outdoor amphitheater that dates back to the 1940s and several hiking trails. The jagged configuration of rocks is known as a fountain formation. It’s believed to be between 290 and 340 million years old. The rocks themselves are red because the iron oxide they are made of has “rusted” or oxidized with exposure to the elements.
Where do you even begin when talking about the Johnston Canyon trail in Banff? This place is a must see. Not only is the path itself remarkable, but the views are stunning, and the hike is simple. Somehow some amazing welders and engineers came up with a way to fix a sidewalk along the side of this giant canyon. There are sections when you are walking directly above the surging waters below. As you hike, you pass waterfall after waterfall. […]
After hanging out in Calgary, we took off in our little FIAT towards Banff. It was a breathtaking drive and it took just over an hour. With a quick pit stop in the quaint downtown, I grabbed a coffee and a slice o’ keesh at Whitebark Cafe. Then we were ready to get our hike on. We took the gondola up the side of Sulphur Mountain and explored the area. Lots of little critters were there to greet us. It was sweet to […]
Let’s talk a photo tour of Killarney National Park. It’s right next to the quaint city of Killarney in County Kerry. Founded in 1932 as a donation to Ireland, it preserves native forests and wildlife. It’s huge (25,425 acres in fact) and filled with tiny little roads that curve up and down the landscape. The very first thing we did when we got there was hike up to the top of Torc Waterfall. It was breathtaking, quite literally, for us […]
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?!
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 […]
Yellowstone is one of the oldest national parks in the world. President Ulysses S. Grant signed it into law in 1872. The park stretches across Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho, with scattered geothermic features spread across the land. Old Faithful, the most famous of the attractions, is a geyser that erupts every 91 minutes. I have to say that my favorite site in the park is The Grand Prismatic Spring, which is appropriately named. It’s the 3rd largest hot spring in the world, […]
