All year round, we find ways to get outside in Boulder. In the dead of winter we will sometimes have a 60 or 70 degree (Fahrenheit) day where people will head out for a jog, hike, or bike ride. During the snowy days, getting outside for some sort of winter sport is a must. Even after skiing, snowboarding, or any other winter activity, you might find people...

We stepped inside and all the light disappeared as a cloak of darkness fell over the room. I knew the dark was coming, but I have never been submerged in such complete pitch blackness before. I was holding on to a girl in front of me who I met a few minutes prior, and Brandon was holding on behind me. As we were led to our...

I am thrilled to annouce that I have been nominated by the talented Wanderlusters for the Explore the Elements travel photoblogging challenge. I was a lot more challenging than I thought it would be to dig through all of my photos and choose the perfect fit for each category. Since this past week marked my six months of living in Boulder, I felt that it was...

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...

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...

What better way to spend a Saturday than at the Boulder Craft Beer Festival?! Unlimited samples of craft beers from twenty of Boulder’s best breweries were available, along with live music during the entire event, beer pong, ping pong, and plenty of other activities. But of course, there is never a dull moment. Shortly after we arrived at the festival, the skies poured out buckets...
