  • Camping Catch-Up

    Life has been moving along. I’ve really been intending to do lots of things … but I find between work (where I’ve been playing catch-up) and lots of other things, my energy is pretty drained by the end of the day. I’ve been doing good to get dinner on the table and keep up with […]

  • Camping at Sylvan Lake

    This past weekend we went camping at Sylvan Lake State Park, just outside Eagle, CO. It’s a beautiful Colorado State Park near a crystal clear mountain lake. Gorgeous. We spent lots of time out on the lake, canoeing around and “fishing.” The rangers at the park put on some good programs too and we went […]

Some folks backed out (reasonably so) and as we climbed the […]

  • Camping in RMNP

    We spent last weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park, home of breathtaking views of the Rockies and some truly amazing trails and wildlife. And for a few days … our campers. We stayed at Aspen Glen Campground. I swear to you, Matt has some sort of genius for picking great campgrounds. This one compared to […]
