From fresh harvested herbs from the Rocky Mountains to the steaming mug of tea you hold while curled up on the couch, Celestial Seasonings has come a long way since 1969. The first production facility was established in a barn in Boulder in 1970, and now they have a full fledged production facility that offers tours and serves more than 1.6 billion cups of tea...

Let me just reiterate – there is an entire festival dedicated to elk. Leave it to Estes Park, Colorado! October is known as “Elktober” in this town. Fall is the prime mating season for elk, and they can be seen all around the town of Estes Park as they come down from the mountains. Elk fest celebrates the courtship season (known as “rut”). When bulls (males) compete for the...

Walking around Nederland, we were recommended to check out Mud Lake, one of the many hiking trails in the area. There was a small dirt road leading to the trail that we actually drove right past the first time, so this was not a trail that is easy to stumble upon. This is a relaxing hike, as the trails are easy and very short (only about 2...

There is a small town about a 17 miles southwest of Boulder located up in the mountains with colorful buildings and plenty of nearby hiking trails. Just about the entire half hour drive is on winding mountain roads, which makes for a nice, scenic route. Upon arriving in Nederland, I instantly fell in love. 8,228 feet in elevation tucked into the Rocky Mountains, it gave me a warm and...

After purchasing the overpriced tickets they use to try to mask how much you’re really spending, this was the first place we saw: Among the items on the menu at Barbed Wire...

Yes, we moved from Chicago, Illinois to Boulder, Colorado and went to a Goose Island beer tasting. But it was most definitely worth it! Every few months, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse hosts a beer tasting, each time with a different theme. As you may remember from my Colorado Eats post, Brandon and I were big fans of this place after we tried it for the first...

I wake up to the peaks of the Flatirons, less than a mile west, complementing the Rocky Mountains in the background. I go on runs every day around the beautiful CU Boulder campus. I live in a city with 300 days of sunshine, 146 miles of preserved hiking trails, and over 300 miles of dedicated bikeways. Why would I ever want to be anywhere else? Before I get...

A beautiful Saturday afternoon meant we were finally going to try out something I have wanted to do for a while now… Stand Up Paddle Boarding! Also known as SUP, it is a great (and fun) full body workout and is fairly easy to catch on once you get used to it. Since it was our first time stand up paddle boarding, we opted to...

Being in Boulder, Colorado we knew we had to take advantage of the countless hiking paths in the area. We decided to start with the nearby Chautauqua Trailhead. Approaching the bottom and getting ready to venture up the Flatirons was exciting and a little intimidating at the same time. We began making our way up the steep incline to take on our hiking adventure. We were in...
