Life gets in the way of me posting on a regular basis, but I love sharing our travels with you! I'm so glad you're here 🙂 The next stop in our Colorado adventure was the Denver area. After our time in small town Granby, we were looking forward to being around more restaurants, shopping, and… Continue reading Even More Beauty in Colorado – Idaho Springs, Golden, and Denver
Staying in Granby, CO, is great for so many reasons - the proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park, the small town vibes and nice people, and the gorgeous surrounding areas. Plus, we saw FIVE moose in the three weeks we were there! In order to see as much as we could, Rueben and I took… Continue reading Beautiful Short Drives from Granby, Colorado
Since we were staying SO close to an entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, we had to go more than once in the two weeks we stayed in Granby, CO. The second time we went we didn't take the entire route to Estes Park, but did take Trail Ridge Road again because it's just so… Continue reading Rocky Mountain National Park – Part 2!
When we booked our stay at River Run RV Resort in Granby, we chose it to be close to Rocky Mountain National Park - and wow were we close! We were about 15 miles from one of the entrances, so we got to go to the park twice, which was so awesome. We also got… Continue reading Rocky Mountain National Park – Part 1!
Call us naïve. Call us optimistic. Definitely call us unprepared. While in Granby, I read and heard about this amazing hike, the Monarch Lake Trail. Rueben and I had a picnic at the entrance of the area, but hadn't thought about doing the hike since it's a little over 4 miles long at an elevation (8400') way… Continue reading Monarch Lake Trail – an Unexpected but Unbelievable Hike
A case for visiting small towns! I grew up in Del Rio, a city of about 40,000 people, with one hospital and one high school. After I graduated from high school, I moved to Austin to attend The University of Texas at Austin, where the student population exceeded that of my hometown! It was a… Continue reading Granby, CO and Why You Should Visit Small Towns
Colorado scenery truly doesn't disappoint. After Rueben and I spent a fun two weeks in Cripple Creek, CO, we decided to stay closer to Rocky Mountain National Park and booked an RV resort in Granby, CO. The drive there was about three hours long and breathtaking! We drove by an llama farm! We took CO-9,… Continue reading The Most Gorgeous Colorado Drive
After going to Pikes Peak, Rueben and I got some amazing Thai food, went shopping, and went to our first pub in over a year! It was super nice treat for both of us, and a really great birthday. The next day we went to Garden of the Gods, which if you haven't been, is an… Continue reading Garden of the Gods and Bighorn Sheep in Colorado
For my 40th birthday in May, Rueben got me some awesome hiking boots, and a weekend in Colorado Springs! That's all I wanted - some good waterproof boots (the ones I wore for this weekend in Colorado Springs were...not good) and to see more of Colorado. First stop - gorgeous Pikes Peak! First, I have… Continue reading Pikes Peak and Our Drive to Colorado Springs
When Rueben and I started RVing in June 2020, we talked about where we wanted to go, and Colorado was my first choice. When I turned thirty 10(!) years ago, I took a solo road trip to Colorado and as cheesy as it sounds, it changed my life in so many positive ways. I fell… Continue reading We Made it to Colorado!
