While I love pulling up in a vehicle to a campsite and unloading right there, there’s something extra rewarding and enjoyable about backcountry camping where you have to park at a trailhead and hike your gear in. If you’ve never gone backpacking or camping in the backcountry, it can seem daunting, so we’ve made a handy guide for getting started! Pack Light While you may think you want that cozy blanket or two hardcover books to read now, once you’ve been carrying them for a few hours you’ll regret it. No matter how far you’re hiking, packing light is very important. Your pack should... Read More

Steps to Summit Your First 14er

May 9th, 2018

When you look out over the mountain peaks that make Colorado one of the most beautiful places to live in the country, you may see certain summits that tower over the others, snowcapped even late into the summer. Many of these are known as 14ers, and their height reaches over 14,000 feet above sea level. There are 58 of these massive peaks in Colorado, the most of any state in the country, and conquering them is a rite of passage for any outdoor enthusiast. But don’t think you can just hop on a trail and summit a 14er—these monsters take more preparation than you might think. Here’s a handy... Read More

5 Ways to Live Greener

May 2nd, 2018

I love the outdoors. The purity and sanctity of nature is something many of us take for granted, and nothing is more disappointing than seeing trash on the bank of a mountain stream or finding plastic in the underbrush of a backcountry trail. Our planet is in danger, and it’s up to us to do our part and make a difference in protecting it so future generations can enjoy the beauty of untouched nature the way we have been able to. But how to even begin? The internet is flush with examples of people who live a zero-waste lifestyle, who started recycling companies at age 7, who invented tools to... Read More

Social Media Digest: Why a Boulder Business should love Instagram

January 13th, 2015

We live in a beautiful town. Boulder is filled with smiling faces, gorgeous surrounding sceneries, and a facade that makes us reminisce of a small mountain town. There are parks, trails, historical points, and far too often are there sun rises and sets that shake the word beautiful to the core. It’s a instagramer’s dream.

Why The Weatherman Can Be Your Business’ BFF: 3 Tips to making weather-relevant content

November 18th, 2014

When the weather turns cold and people find themselves inside more it’s a great opportunity to put those cozy, hot chocolate drinking web surfers to work! What do I mean: the cold – especially very harsh and snowy days that come out of no where, like last week in Boulder – gets people on their computers. They chat, watch videos, share and read; they get on Facebook, they tweet, and scroll through all the content they missed from earlier in the week. Essentially, snow makes for a lazy day attitude and this is a great, if not best time for businesses to push some unscheduled content into your,... Read More

11 Hiking Tips that will Make your Friends Think that You are the Greatest Outdoorsman Since Bear Grylls

July 6th, 2014

Hiking is one of Boulder’s best summer activities. It’s a great way to get outside, see some sights, and catch up on the latest gossip with some friends. Nature is unpredictable though, and hikers must always be prepared for everything. That’s why I’ve prepared a list of hiking tips. 1. Stay hydrated. Staying hydrated is absolutely key for hiking.
