Exploring the Enchanting Spring Creek Trail in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Steamboat Springs has always been one of my favorite mountain towns. Although we’ve never had the opportunity to ride its famous Champagne Powder in the winter, we’ve explored this picturesque town in the spring and summer whenever we wanted a change of scenery from Vail. This week we took the opportunity to explore a new

From the Rockies to the Ocean: Our San Diego Road Trip

After living on the road for almost a year, we traded in road trips for plane trips when we decided to plant our roots in the Colorado Rockies. Initially, I was excited.

Oregon Coast (Part Two)

Florence After we left Newport, we had no idea where we were spending the night. Driving along I-5, we had so many rest areas to choose from, but highway 101 had nothing. Well, nothing free. We stumbled upon a campsite along the highway that had a few RV’s parked. Initially, we thought we got lucky

Oregon Coast (Part One)

Ashland, OR

Southern Oregon is a definite spot on our list that we would love to visit again. We are no strangers to Oregon and the Pacific Northwest was my home until my teens. It wasn’t until this trip that I had no idea how unfamiliar I was with the southern part of the state. Our first
