    I’ve lived in Colorado for most of my life, and yet I’ve never been snowshoeing.  I finally decided to check it out with a trip to Brainard Lake.  We rented all of our gear and got up to the area to find a lot of other people doing the same thing.  We had our...

    Coffee Region Test: Ethiopia and Kenya

    by  • February 7, 2017 • 1 Comment

    I joined Angels Cup and got a few deliveries.  Even though I quit, I would still recommend it.  For me, it was a little too overwhelming, trying so many coffees so quickly.  The best thing I got from Angels Cup was their blog post describing how coffees taste from different regions.  It’s a fantastic...

    Friends and family know I’m learning to be a better photographer this year, but I’m still very much a beginner.  There are about 58,000 photos on TrailDamage.com, most of them taken by me, and yet I really have no idea what I’m doing.  I think I usually do a decent job at composition, but...

    I got a seat in the middle of the bench at the very back, and the photo showing the entire length of the “bendy bus” just had to be taken.

    Hackett Gulch is always a good time, and as of this year the water crossings are open again.  They were closed after the Hayman Fire in 2002.  Thumbs up!

    My New Kayak

    by  • August 21, 2016 • 0 Comments

    I’ve been renting kayaks to try them out, and it’s kind of a pain.  You can’t just pick up and go to any lake you want, and you have to watch the clock to make sure you’re back in time.  You also get some pretty beat up and slow kayaks.  So I bought one,...
