New York City!

This was one place i didn’t think i will have such a good time. I always thought i am a  suburban kind of girl. I like the peace and quite, short lines, less traffic, less hurry to be anywhere.. Surprise! I like City too. Well maybe just to visit but i loved it there. We…

Niagara Falls!

It was just Wow! All the pictures i have seen, it still was amazing to watch. The force of the water and the volume will not cease to amaze you. So we did a few things in and around Niagara Falls : The Niagara Falls  Old fort Niagara Whirlpool state park Niagara from the American…

Watkins Glen State Park

Okay so this is very unlike me but we went on a trip (long one) on a whim! That means i didn’t quite do my research on the places to visit and how and when of the trip. I had an idea of what all i wanted to do/see but not even close to my…

Grottos Trail, Aspen

This was pretty pretty hike. I loved it. It is a very short hike of 1.2 miles. So for people who are into hiking this would be more of sight seeing. It is gorgeous though. Good for a family hike. It is located close to the Independence Pass. It is heavily trafficked loop trail, so…

Mt. Evans

I have been wanting to go to Mt Evans for about two years now. They have always been closed. So when they finally opened i rushed to the summit. The drive was pretty much like the one to Pikes peak. The lakes at the summit were beautiful. There are 3 lakes along the way –…

Blue Lakes

I was super excited to go on this trip. It checked two of my boxes – Camping and Blue lakes hike. Just a weekend get away yet felt like a long trip. We started off on Saturday from Denver and drove towards Ouray. Oh the planning for the camping took more time than the drive…

Chicago

A beautiful city with my beautiful friends. I went to Chicago to meet my close friends from School. Yup! Friends from a long time ago. When i think of these girls i am reminded of one particular birthday party where my friend’s sister found us very loud, maybe a little funny and decided to film us….

River Rafting

Another one off my list! We went to the closest place from Denver where one could raft. Clear creek at Idaho Springs. Nothing much to say here except that it was so much fun. I am not a good swimmer which makes me fear waters. At the same time, i love the splash of water….

Blue Lakes-Monte Cristo Gulch

I have been meaning to pen this down for quite a while now. This was from our visit to Breckenridge during the July 4th weekend. I had planned three things to do there.. 1)  Scenic Drive through Boreas Pass:  It is not a paved road and yet 2WD can easily manage. Our guests wanted to…

Catamount Falls – Thomas Trail

We choose to hike to the Catamount falls because it was a short hike of 3 miles. Not much of elevation gain and the trail is surrounded my trees making it apt for summer hikes. We started off from Green mountain falls downtown near the Gazebo lake. The Gazebo lake is a great place for…

Telluride

The last stop of our trip and it was amazing. I loved this town; surrounded by snow-capped mountains, a beautiful river walk, free gondola ride (EPIC ride)..I wish i could have stayed here longer. We had planned to hike to the Blue Lake which is located at 9400 ft elevation. The late snow in May…

Mesa Verde National park

A short drive of 30 minutes from Durango and we reached Mesa Verde National Park. This park in my opinion is not that great. Let me explain. This park would be fun and entertaining for those who are into history. I like history but this park was dull for my taste. I personally liked knowing…
