A Hot Time in the Hot Springs

We spent the afternoon at the Springs Resort in town. If you’re looking for a way to relax and unwind, this is a great way to do it. This was our first trip to this particular hot springs resort. It’s smaller than our usual destination, Glenwood Springs, but it was a nice change of pace. […]

Our Mountain Hideaway

When I was planning this trip, I wanted to find a cabin in the woods where we could just relax and enjoy the winter scenery. I found it.  We’re staying at the Cabins at Hartland Ranch. Now, the word “cabin” may have you thinking of some cold, dark little shack.  Our “cabin” couldn’t be further from […]

A Stop in Santa Fe

On the way to winter, we stopped for the night in Santa Fe.  I had never really been there before, other than to drive through it (at night, no less) on the way to Red River to go skiing.  So on this trip, I wanted to spend a little time there to go exploring.  We […]

Finding Winter

Call me crazy, but I lovewinter! Bundling up to brave the icy cold, witnessing my surroundings transformed by a glistening blanket of newly fallen snow, thawing out by a roaring fire… Unfortunately, there’s not much in the way of winter weather around here, as is evidenced by the thermometer. So, I’m off to find winter. […]
