Colorful Colorado My Top Color Moments - Not a ChatGPT Post Grand Lake 2015, HeidiTown.com

There will be numerous “leaf-peeping” articles published over the next couple of weeks. Colorado has become insanely popular for the activity, and it’s not surprising. This state’s numerous aspen groves turn gold and we have bushes that turn a stunning red. The phrase on our welcome signs is no joke—Colorful Colorado exists! Instead of giving readers driving directions to see color, so that their vehicle can join the winding train

Barbarian Feast Photo

Started in 2017, Barbarian Feast is now the must-have ticket of the season. While we took a brief break during the pandemic, this will be our sixth year of holding the events under the tents at Grimm Brothers Brewhouse in Loveland, Colorado. Offerings always include axe throwing, a live drummer(s), belly dances by Troupe Sidysaan, a photo booth, and more. These talented people in entertainment donated their time to this

Featured Photo Woodys at Art Castings, Sculpture in Loveland, HeidiTown

When we moved to Loveland from the Denver suburbs in 2003, people thought we were moving to the ski area just east of the Eisenhower Tunnel. The city wasn’t well-known at the time. Ryan, who grew up in Colorado, hadn’t heard of Loveland. However, when we visited Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2004, everyone knew Loveland, Colorado. This is an art city, and it’s been this way for a long

Winter Park, Colorado Why Fritzi, the Dog, is a Big Fan. HeidiTown (14)

Want to know why your dog will love Grand County? And you too? The average August temperature is 74 degrees.   We’ve been heading to Grand County, home to Winter Park, Granby, Grand Lake, and more, for many years. I’ve been visiting for about 23 years. Ryan’s been going most of his life. However, I have never, until this trip to attend Winter Park Brew Fest, stayed so close to Rendevous

Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2023 HeidiTown (2)

I have supported this cause from its start in 2014. It’s Puppy Mills Awareness Day (formerly Hops & Harley). One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event go to Harley Dream. This cause is close to my heart for several reasons but mainly, I love dogs. I mean, I really, really do. I think they are the best thing that has happened to the human race. Therefore, the story

Get off the Interstate Take Loveland Pass Colorado HeidiTown (1)

I’ve been extremely lucky to have been on many of Colorado’s roads. However, we usually skip Loveland Pass because it adds a significant amount of time if one is traveling on Interstate 70 (with a few exceptions). For those who don’t know, Loveland Pass was rendered somewhat unnecessary in 1973 by the construction of the Eisenhower Tunnel. It’s not totally unnecessary because semis and other vehicles utilize it when the

Go for the Scenic Train, Stay for Indiana Jones Antonito, Colorado (10) HeidiTown

Indiana Jones mania is alive and well in this house. We already have tickets to see ” Indiana Jones & the Dial of Destiny” on IMAX this Friday. You see, “Indiana Jones & the Raiders of the Lost Ark” is Ryan’s favorite movie of all time. Being a 9-year-old when it came to theaters, “Indiana Jones” had a fairly significant influence on his life. He wanted to become an archaeologist

Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show in Denver: High Kicks & High Notes

In 2001, Ryan and I got engaged at the Fourth Story Restaurant above the Tattered Cover in Cherry Creek. Later in the evening, we attended Riverdance at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The restaurant is closed, but the dance lives on. Last night, we got to go again, and it was magical. I hadn’t been downtown to a show in years. In fact, I haven’t really been in

5 Good Reasons to Visit Keystone, Colorado, this Summer HeidiTown.com 2

Hummingbirds fly through the air, a breeze blows gently from the creek, and a riot of colorful flowers spring from pots and gardens everywhere in the village. It’s just another summer day in Keystone, Colorado. The Colorado Rocky Mountains may be known as a skiers’ paradise, but they are also heavenly during the summer months. And there’s no excuse not to go, at least once—Keystone has five festivals, mostly free,

Visit Glenwood Spring Part of Colorado History & Our History. HeidiTown (13)

Glenwood Springs never gets old, and yet it is old. In fact, it’s brimming with Colorado history, and it plays a role in the history of my life. I have been visiting for just over a quarter of a century and Ryan’s been traveling there his entire life. We simply love it. Here is what we did in Glenwood Springs on our most recent trip this April.  We sailed into
