Spring Time in the Rockies

Went for a nice Spring run the other night. As obvious, the snow wasn’t melted so it was mostly wading through mud the whole time…. but none the less I made it to my destination! I’ll post a picture later of the weather today…



Mountain Biking in Moab

In the past month, my parents and I have been down to Moab, Utah twice to do some mountain biking. I always enjoy a weekend away from the Roaring Fork Valley (especially before ski season) and to camp with my mom and dad always is a welcomed treat.

We camped up at Dead Horse Point and road on the Intrepid trails then went down outside of Moab to ride the North Klondike Bluffs trails. These are very diverse trails that even my 57 year old mother can ride, so I recommend these to anyone who wants a challenge but also just to enjoy riding in the desert.

Two days ago, I got a new (used) mountain bike as well! Now if it would just stop snowing up here in the Rockies for a few days, I could go try it out! Hopefully this afternoon after work.


This is a picture from Dead Horse Point at our lunch spot.


I start my new job working with the Aspen Skiing Company on November 3rd working with Advanced Sales. I’m excited for this change of employment and look forward to the upcoming ski season!

On a plus note as well, I have not drank even one sip of alcohol for a week and a half and feel fantastic! Tomorrow is my Friday so I think it will be acceptable to enjoy a glass of wine.. It’s always nice to give our bodies a break and little health kick to get through the flu season.

Hope all is well!

Next Move?

Hey! I’m wondering if anyone knows about living in Denver, Colorado. I live up in the high Rocky Mountains and am wanting to make my next move to Denver. I want to continue my education with a Masters Degree in the science of adult aging and wellness so I think Denver would be a good move for a larger community and more opportunities. 

I’m still young, I have time; I want to enjoy and experience life before I get into a career/family which will be living my life not just for me but for other people… but that being said, I want to make changes in my life. I want to get a career. I want that driven feeling I used to have so much of come back. I have the passion, now I just have to make the complete effort. 

So…. anyone know of apartments to rent from in Denver? (I am also VERY open to options in other states).
