I have always been a hiker. When I was young my mom used to take us to New Hampshire for scenic drives and we would get out and hike all the popular tourist spots. When we went up to our family camp in the middle of nowhere Maine we would hike the 4×4 roads as a family. I’m not sure I realized how much I loved these adventures until I got older and spent less time with my family.
Do you work 40 hours or more a week? Do you often say things like “I would do it if I just had more time?” I feel ya! Really I do. Right now I work 50+ hours a week between two jobs. In this post I am going to tell you how to make time to get outside more often.
Last summer for my birthday Matt and I wanted to go backpacking somewhere relaxing and relatively close to home. We started scouring our maps and ended up picking Kroenke Lake outside of Buena Vista. If you’ve never been to the Buena Vista, Colorado area to explore, I highly recommend it!
Although I’ve lived in Colorado now for the past 5 years, I’m originally from Maine and spent my early life there. I still go home to visit often and am always excited to see the ocean again. The Rocky Mountains are a good stand in for the ocean, but this salty girl needs a little ocean in her life from time to time.
Now that we’re on the other side of the winter solstice, I’m already thinking about longer days and springtime adventures. Yes, I know it’s only January right now and we still have a long way to go. But in about a month or so Moab will start getting warmer, and that is something every Coloradoan who lives in the mountains is dreaming about.
