Grand Mesa Scenic Byway


Loved… just loved our time driving on the Grand Mesa Scenic Byway.  My humble words could not do justice to this playground in the sky.  Grand Mesa is the largest, flat-topped mountain in the world, and the Grand Mesa Scenic Byway gave us a great preview to what the land offered.  After the drive I realized I …

McKayla’s Cake Smash

How is it possible that our second tiny baby is already a whole year old!?!  We are so in love with our sweet spunky little McKayla girl (well, both our girls actually).  She is a charmer and always quick to have a toothy little grin on her face.  It is fun to watch her explore …

Mass Ascension: ABQ Balloon Festival


The Mass Ascension was sight to behold.  We imagined it was going to be something special, but even our wildest imagination fell far short. Hundreds of bright colorful balloons drifting away.  It was like poetry in motion.  We love to travel around and not see the same place over again but right after we saw …

Rifle Falls State Park


Rifle Falls State Park is a small but visually stunning state park in Colorado.  Located in the Northwest part of the state, Rifle Falls State Park is the only 80-foot triple waterfall in Colorado.  It is a stunning waterfall, but what amazed us was everything else we got to see there. It ended up being a …

Land of Lakes Trail: Grand Mesa


Land of Lakes Trail, more like incredible view trail.  This easy half mile trail, mostly paved, is arguably the easiest trail to an outstanding view that I have ever been on.  Most hikes make a person work for its beauty.  Not this one.  Just a short incline trek up and then I had an extended …

A Sweet Tradition Continues…


                                             Ever since the early days of mine and Kenny’s vacations, along the trip we would stop by at least one ice cream shop.  Preferably a small town, obscure little shop rather than some big chain store.  Although in a pinch Cold Stone Creamery can’t be beat.  As the years have flown by and we are …
