During my last trip in the Royal Gorge region, I was scheduled to go on a trip to the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park to see North America’s highest suspension bridge and take a whack at the zip line and sky coaster. My mother has been begging me to do both of those attractions forever, and my fears have been getting the best of me. In the interest of this recent trip, I decided I would give it a try. Of course, my mother was bummed she wasn’t going to get to go with me. Luckily for her, the Universe heard her cries because that day, it was too windy to do anything on the side of zip lines, skycoa ..read more

About two years ago, my father was watching a YouTube video about a set of technologies that campers could take with them when they are going off the grid for a camping adventure. The video featured a BioLite Campstove 2, a piece of technology that has the capability to power your electronic devices by burning fuel and without using propane. Yes. This little adorable camp stove burns twigs and can generate enough power to charge any of your devices for several hours. I was watching it with him and he said, “You know, Kel, you should get one of these camp stoves.” And for the past two years, I ..read more

So it’s not exactly a safari, but it sure feels like one when you get in the back of one of these Jeep Rubicons.

If you thought there wasn’t any lavender fields just hanging out on the Western slopes of Colorado, well you’d be wrong. Last November during my birthday trip, I took a trip around Colorado to explore some of the places I’ve never seen. One of the places I decided to visit was Grand Junction, to one, see the area, and two see my Aunt and Uncle. During my travels in the area, they took me on a drive through Palisade’s many farms to a place called Sage Creations Organic Farm. While it was November, nothing was in bloom, but that didn’t make it any less beautiful. Lavender Fields in November ..read more
