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!

Luckily were able to park at the perfect overlook to witness this amazing view. I wish I could find this overlook on the map, because it was perfect! I… Continue reading Another Incredible Sunset
“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.” - Bill Watterson "I think that's the galaxy..."

Neither one of us had ever seen it… Continue reading New Mexico, Stars, and This Thing Called Boondocking
