I have not written a “year in review” post, and I’m not going to do it. Now that isn’t to say that there weren’t highlights. Most were animal-related. For instance, meeting kittens and puppies at Animal Aid of Colorado on assignment for Berthoud Weekly Surveyor. Meeting this cat in Chadron, Nebraska, outside the Bean Broker Coffee House and Pub. Meeting all the animals on the farm at AJ Farms 605
I watch a lot of travel shows and follow a lot of travel writers, travel bloggers and travel influencers on social media. It seems like people travel for a lot of serious reasons. They want to expand their minds, explore new cultures, and learn about the world. These are all noble reasons to travel. However, no one ever says, “I want to travel because it’s fun.” And the truth is,
I love winter festivals. It’s a party in the snow and I don’t think it gets much better than that, especially in Colorado. Here’s a lineup of Colorado winter festivals that should be on your radar this year. Here are six Colorado winter festivals with a little something for every taste. Whether you’re looking for a raging party of wholesome family-fun, Colorado’s got your festival needs covered. Ullr – Breckenridge,
Whether you go to Keystone to ski or enjoy the summer festival scene, these are useful tips for staying in Keystone, Colorado. Stay in the River Run I’ve been to Keystone many times, and I’ve stayed both in River Run Village at the base of the ski resort as well as in town. Staying anywhere in Keystone is easy thanks to the free shuttle that runs around the area, but
I’ve been to each of these festivals and can personally vouch that they are worth the drive. The fact is, I have actually been to 99% of the places/festivals that I write about and you can trust that my observations have come through actually having boots on the ground (my boots).
‘Tis the season for holiday-themed festivals and while craft shows and Christmas parades abound, here are a few unique events where you get to join in the fun. Crowds of Santas Spotted in Breckenridge and Crested Butte, Colorado There’s something particularly amusing about being surrounded by hundreds of Santas; boy Santas, girl Santas, tall Santas, short Santas, fat Santas, skinny Santas, pantless Santas (it happens). Here are two Colorado mountain
Each year I compile a list of my top ten highlights and each year it gets harder. This year was no exception. From birding festivals to wine festivals to festive Christmas outings, 2015 was chockablock with amazing Colorado experiences. I truly hope you took inspiration from my travels and had a few Colorado festival and travel highlights of your own this year. At the end of this post feel free
Updated 5/17/18 I’ve been to Keystone Resort many times, so it’s about time they got some major ink. Perhaps you associate this resort with skiing, and yes, it’s a first-rate ski resort and really fabulous for families.

Holiday weeks such as this one are notorious for low blog engagement, and that’s okay. I hope everyone is out enjoying the 4th of July and the extra, extra long weekend! The HeidiTown Gives Back post about National Dog Mill Rescue went up on Monday, so today I’m sharing my radio segment. My 5 minute show airs twice a month on KRFC 88.9 FM, public radio in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The final post is all about the touristy activities you shouldn’t miss. When I visit a new place, I usually try to blend in with the locals, but I’ll be honest, sometimes being a tourist is a lot of fun. We
