Dust Bowl Road Trip Canyon Journeys in Baca County, Colorado. HeidiTown (9)

I haven’t been exactly sure how to approach writing about our Dust Bowl Road Trip. There is a lot to unpack here (to use a phrase popular in today’s lexicon). It was an adventure and it was eye-opening on many levels. We made several unexpected stops that included a blown out tire in Colorado or Oklahoma (we’re not sure). I’ve decided against a day-by-day account. I think I’ll hop around

Where to Stay in Leadville, Colorado Tashi’s Cabin at Buckeye’s Cabins. HeidiTown (6)

I get a lot of “where to stay” type questions. If you’d like a dog-friendly, rustic Leadville experiences, Tashi’s Cabin is the place for you. And when I say rustic I do not mean you’ll go without. This is a cabin, with a bathroom, two bedrooms, kitchen and living area. There is even a wood-burning stove. That warms my heart and toes! We’ve been to Leadville a handful of times

Living Large with the Dog at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa. HeidiTown (2)

With a magical fire bench in the entry and a snow-white mountain view framed by windows in the bar, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa makes a statement from the moment a guest arrives. A few weeks ago, I was an invitee to a Park Hyatt media dinner featuring the property’s new executive chef, Santosh Koradi.  The hotel is at Beaver Creek Resort in Avon, Colorado, about 15 minutes

Golden, Colorado is Calling & You Must Go. HeidiTown (5)

Fun fact. I was married in Golden. It’s true. We said our “I dos” at Boettcher Mansion on Lookout Mountain in Golden, Colorado. So, yes, this hip little town that’s under 30 minutes from Denver, will always hold a special place in my heart. That being said, I haven’t been there for several years, and there are a couple of new, fun destinations to share with you. Plus, a new

It’s a Dog’s Day (& Night) at The Eddy Taproom & Hotel in Golden, Colorado. HeidiTown (14)

I admit that Ryan does the heavy lifting when it comes to traveling with the dog. It’s Ryan who takes her on a walk before bedtime and first thing when we get up. He keeps a close eye on her at breweries and handles her as we walk the streets. I sincerely appreciate it because not only does it free up my hands for taking photos, I absolutely love traveling

Glenwood Springs, Colorado Bring the Dog, Bring a Bathing Suit and Go. HeidiTown.com 1

As a travel writer specializing in Colorado, I am not supposed to play favorites. I try not to, however, I think we’ve visited Glenwood Springs more than any other place in the state. Does that make it a favorite? You be the judge.  It all started before I moved to Colorado. We flew in and drove back, making a stop at Glenwood Springs for a hike at Hanging Lake and

On the Road in Grand Junction, Colorado: Take a Hike with the Dog

When you think of Grand Junction, mountain biking probably comes to mind. That’s because it’s an ideal location to push yourself to the limit on two wheels. For various reasons, I stay on my feet, and while it’s a top mountain biking destination, Grand Junction is an ideal spot to hike. We browsed several online maps of Grand Junction and were shocked to see how many trails are in the

On the Road in Grand Junction, Colorado Ride with Adrenaline Driven Adventures. HeidiTown (10)

We just returned from a dog-friendly trip to Grand Junction, a town of 62,000 on the Western Slope in Mesa County. The area is great for a getaway with Fido, or in our case, Fritzi. Not only was our hotel dog-friendly, but there are dog parks, and trails everywhere. Well-behaved dogs are even allowed in some downtown stores and on many restaurant and brewery patios.
