You Need to See The World of WearableArt™ Colorado Springs. HeidiTown (8)

Here’s a little story about me that you probably won’t believe but it is true. Today, I sport torn jeans and old t-shirts but there was a time when I filled binders with fashion drawings. That’s right, as a teenager, I designed dresses fit for queens of the runway. I never had plans of becoming a fashion designer, I knew my limitations, but I loved fashion.  Fast forward to this

Connecting with My Ancestors Throwing Axes in Ouray, Colorado. HeidiTown (3)

Here’s the real deal. When I found out we were going to throw axes during a trip to Ouray, Colorado, I wasn’t thrilled. After all, throwing axes sounds athletic and I am not athletic. It also sounds a bit like manual labor and I’m no fan of manual labor.  Fast forward to our trip to Ouray in July and we decide to throw axes after horseback riding and before heading

NEW this Summer at Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Colorado. HeidiTown (2)

We love Glenwood Springs. It’s the town we’ve visited the most due to the fact that we started frequenting Glenwood long before I started HeidiTown. Ryan, who was raised in Colorado, spent several childhood vacations at the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, and it’s a tradition for many Coloradan families. We’ve soaked at the hots springs pool many times and we even attended the 125th year anniversary of the pool in

Pedal Less, Bike More with Electric Bikes in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown.com 2

After a three-year hiatus, we spent three-nights in Steamboat Springs this past June. I enjoy this town’s mix of bikes and horses, hiking boots and cowboy boots and flat caps and cowboy hats. It’s a town that reflects Colorado in a big way and that’s why we’ve been visiting for so long (that, and one of my best friends moved to Steamboat more than a decade ago). We’ve ridden bikes

An Escape & Taco Celebration in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (9)

I have a long relationship with Steamboat Springs. In fact, one of my best friends moved there more than a decade ago, so it has always been a place I’ve visited. However, with the craziness of life and HeidiTown, it had been three years since my last visit, so when we finally spent the weekend there in June, we were way overdue. An Outdoor Escape & Taco Celebration I haven’t

Hot Springs, Fried Chicken & Sand in the San Luis Valley, Part Three. HeidiTown (3)

This is part three of a three-part series on travel to the San Luis Valley.  Most people who stay in the Moffat area of the San Luis Valley, have hot springs on the agenda. That’s because two hot springs destinations are located here. In fact, our Airbnb, Mountain Springs Homestay, is next door to Valley View Hot Springs and just a 15-minute drive from Joyful Journey Hot Springs.  Hot Springs

Living History in the San Luis Valley of Colorado. HeidiTown.com (9)

I have driven through the San Luis Valley numerous times. Once, I even spent a little time in Alamosa at the Rio Frio where I ran my first-ever 5K race down the frozen Rio Grande River. However, for the most part, this is drive through country for us. That’s why I was excited to stay in the area for our 17th wedding anniversary this past May. The San Luis Valley

Eating Our Way through Craig, Colorado in Moffat County HeidiTown (4)

Wherever we travel, food is always a big part of the experience. Even when we’re in a non-foodie town, we make a point to find great spots to eat and we find them everywhere. Craig is located in Northwest Colorado. It is east of Dinosaur National Monument and 50 minutes west of Steamboat Springs. In this small town, cows outnumber humans and that’s the way most people like it. This
