GEARING UP FOR THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

As I get older it feels as though November (the start to the holiday season!) comes around quicker and quicker. This seasons brings more joy and excitement and of course – busyness! And boy has it felt busy indeed. I just kicked off an engagement with a new client this week and am gearing upContinue reading “GEARING UP FOR THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR”

A DAY AT BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK

Bryce Canyon National Park has the largest concentration of hoodoos (irregular rock columns) found anywhere in the world. It is very close to Zion but is quite a bit less popular and has a drastically different landscape. When I first visited Bryce Canyon I was blown away and if you’re in the area already visitingContinue reading “A DAY AT BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK”

ANGEL’S LANDING

Zion National Park is Utah’s first and most visited national park with over 4 million visitors each year. This visitor count also puts Zion third on the list of the most visited national parks in the nation. People come from far and wide to see Zion’s expansive canyon which boast amazing canyoneering opportunities for beginnersContinue reading “ANGEL’S LANDING”

SUMMER DAY HIKE PACK ESSENTIALS

I was hiking over the weekend with some friends and one of them asked how heavy my backpack was. I proceeded to take off my backpack to let them hold it and they were surprised by the weight! For summer day hikes, I carry the same black backpack whether the hike is shorter or longContinue reading “SUMMER DAY HIKE PACK ESSENTIALS”

WILDFLOWER SEASON!

Recently, it has been so smokey in Colorado and I’m assuming most states in the west are experiencing a similar forecast. As wildfires rage in California, the smoke is settling across the west bringing Denver’s air quality to top the charts among the worst air quality in major cities across the world. It stinks (literallyContinue reading “WILDFLOWER SEASON!”

GROWING

It’s been about two and a half weeks since I’ve been back from Alaska but some how my Alaska adventures feel like a lifetime ago. Looking back now I feel like I lived a completely different life there, like I was a different person somehow. I stepped out of my comfort zone to make friends,Continue reading “GROWING”

SMALL CHANGES

Something new I’ve added to my routine since I’ve been in Alaska is a daily after work hike. After work hikes have never been a convenient option for me in Denver due to my proximity to the mountains. I’d go on walks or runs in my area but it’s not quite the same as venturingContinue reading “SMALL CHANGES”

NEW TERRAIN

They say Alaska is the state that is always trying to kill you. It’s vast and wild and filled with big animals and tough people. Only 20% of Alaska is accessible by roads and less than 1% of Alaska is inhabited (source). Alaska takes you from sea level to North America’s tallest peak, Mt. DenaliContinue reading “NEW TERRAIN”

MY STORY

I was recently introduced to the term “Digital Nomad”. A coworker threw it out when I explained what my next adventure was going to be. The exciting thing about this pandemic is, it has encouraged so many people to start exploring the great outdoors and with the opportunities remote work can bring, people can ventureContinue reading “MY STORY”
