Colorado Hikes: Where I’ve Been & Where I Want to Go

If you were to ask 100 people that have moved to the state of Colorado in the past five years why they chose to make this state their new home, I would be willing to bet that “outdoor recreation opportunities” would be one of the top three reasons provided. The other two answers might revolve around the amazing variety of breweries located within the state or the easy (and legal) access to that controversial green plant, but my answer is always the amazing outdoor adventures that are now right outside my back door…literally! I live at the foot of the foothills and absolutely love it—and the hiking escapades I’ve had so far are what I want to share with you. I’ve also included some links to trails that are on my list but I haven’t had the opportunity to hike just yet.

Family Vacations: Where to Stay, What to Do

There is a lot that goes into planning a trip with kiddos, and it often means sacrificing a brewery tour to stand in line for two hours to take a picture with Chewbacca or Princess Elsa.  But hey, that’s what we signed up for as parents. 

Family vacations are supposed to be fun, memorable and hopefully relaxing. But if you've traveled with kids, you know there are rare times of true relaxation besides when you are asleep!  So the question remains, how do you plan ahead to create an enjoyable, unforgettable experience for your family?  If you are successful, then just maybe you can revel in a little relaxation as well!

Hotels

  • Depending on where you are traveling, look for hotels with amenities such as pools and kids’ activities.  Pools provide a much needed outlet for kids to burn off energy, especially after a day full of travel. Some hotels even offer on-site activities for kids to participate. If you’re at a kid-friendly hotel, chances are you’ll meet some other traveling families with kids along the way, and maybe make some new friendships.

The Watch Journey

You shot a killer video that the whole world needs to see.  You uploaded it to YouTube, anxiously waited a week before you checked your analytics for the stream of validation that surely would descend upon you as you see hundreds, nay, thousands of views rack up.  Your expectations are undoubtedly high -- hundreds of minutes of watch time.  Thousands of followers who will like, share and continue to fill your comment stream with a seemingly endless fount of praise.  And this, THIS video will be what vaults your destination into the stratosphere of YouTube fame as influencers beg to work with you and VidCon books you as one of its keynote speakers.

Except…no one seems to be watching your video.  Your analytics show a pitiful handful of viewers who stopped watching only a few seconds in.  Wah waaaaaaaaah.

What happened?  You did “everything right” from a content perspective – you told a great story, you had amazing footage – so why has your video avoided the limelight and fallen into the proverbial YouTube abyss?  The problem is, you may not have been aware that the Watch Journey
