Beautiful Short Drives from Granby, Colorado

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

Rocky Mountain National Park – Part 2!

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!

Rocky Mountain National Park – Part 1!

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!

Monarch Lake Trail – an Unexpected but Unbelievable Hike

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

Granby, CO and Why You Should Visit Small Towns

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

The Most Gorgeous Colorado Drive

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

Pikes Peak and Our Drive to Colorado Springs

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

Del Rio, TX Appreciation Post

I grew up in Del Rio, a town of about 40,000 people on the border to Mexico. My family and I would go to Mexico to eat at restaurants (Los Tacos Grill!) and shop, and in high school I would go with friends to the bars. It's not the most exciting town, but we do… Continue reading Del Rio, TX Appreciation Post

Finding Beauty in the Snow Storm

In the middle of February of this year (while we were in Canyon Lake), a huge winter storm hit central Texas, where snow that actually sticks to the ground isn't a very common occurrence. It caused people to lose power and water for days, including my parents and close friends. "The winter storm plunged large… Continue reading Finding Beauty in the Snow Storm

Canyon Lake and a New RV!

We spent a month at the beach and while fun, we were ready to go back to the Texas Hill Country, and then head further north. We picked an amazing RV park - Rio Guadalupe Resort. It's right on the Guadalupe River, so you can fish, kayak, canoe, and tube right next to your campsite!… Continue reading Canyon Lake and a New RV!
