    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

    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,...

    Karen and I spent a couple of hours yesterday on Standley Lake trying out a two-person kayak.  It was fun, and no one fell in.  We spent the whole time weaving around the lake as we couldn’t make it track in a straight line.  But we’re the first ones to admit we don’t know...

    I’d been trying to get to Mesa Verde for the last few years but plans kept falling through.  I’ve lived in Colorado since I was in the sixth grade, and I saw it when I was little but I don’t remember it.  I asked my dad if he was interested, and he was!  He...

    Day Trip to Dallas

    I took a trip in a single day to Dallas with some friends on April 30th.  It was a blast!  We’re going to do a day or weekend trip like this about every three months, finding somewhere cheap to fly and grab a meal. I’ve been experimenting with Microsoft Sway and I put the...
