Robert’s Western World 

Robert’s Western World was everything I thought a Honky Tonk would be… a tad edgy, dark, filled with nostalgia and history, crowded and absolutely rockin’.  It took a few minutes for us to find a seat here at the infamous Robert’s Western World right on Broadway. It was a hair awkward because I had the…

Badlands National Park 

The Badlands are pretty badass. I’m not going to lie, I was a little scared of them, but equally intrigued. I kept reading things that said “they don’t call them ‘bad’ for no reason”. Uh….What? OY! I get it….They’re basically just a desert. There’s no shade. At all. There are rattlesnakes. It’s desolate. It’s miles…

Ojo Caliente Mineral Spa 

My favorite side of the road, random road-trip stop to date! Located in somewhat of a deserted, but sacred section of New Mexico is this beautiful hill side mineral spa with mud baths! Ojo is world renowned and one of the oldest natural health resorts in the county. It opened in 1868!  The best part…

Rio Grande National Forest 

The Rio Grande National Forest spans over 1.83 million acres in southern Colorado. You can enjoy much of its beauty by hopping on and off your drive along Route 160. We were headed from Great Sand Dunes National Park to Mesa Verde and completely underestimated this stunning drive. It seems as though much of this…

Great Sand Dunes National Park 

Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado is insane!! It’s home to the largest sand dunes in North America! It was here we tried sand sledding for the first time, and definitely not last time.  Being on the hot, hot sand with the snow capped mountains in the background was absolutely incredible!! This place…

Treasure Falls 

Little hike, big rewards!! We randomly stumbled upon Treasure Falls on our way from Great Sand Dunes National Park to Mesa Verde National Park while driving along Route 160 which passes through the San Juan National Forest.  There’s a small parking lot just feet from where the trail begins. If you head to the right…

Shopping in Santa Fe 

Oh my how I loved Jackalope in all its wonderfully vibrant ways! This was our first colorful stop when we strolled into Sante Fe and it set the tone perfectly for our authentic day!  We were greeted immediately outside in the midst of gorgeous colored, traditional planters and lawn decor. There’s a box near the…

Earthship Biotecture 

While they do not encourage, rather, allow trespassers, the visitors center was closed and I was just DYING to see these bad boys that made me literally stop dead in my tracks when we were passing by. Hubs and I had seen a documentary about funky, completely sustainable homes made from solely from recycled materials…

Glacier National Park 

Literally the stuff (my) dreams are made of. Do you ever see a photo online and ask “yea, but is that just a good photo by a professional or does it really look like that?” Well, Glacier National Park not only really does look like that, but is much more amazing in person, actually!! Breathtaking….

Yellowstone 

The nation’s very first National Park! That statement alone is worthy of putting it on the ole bucket list. Yellowstone is so incredibly special. It’s insanely large and can be a little overwhelming to look at on a map. How will I ever “do” it all? Well, you may not, even if you stay a…

Taos Pueblo 

A living Pueblo!! For me this was by far one of the most fascinating places on our latest trip to the Southwest! I felt so honored to be on this sacred land where we literally stepped back into a simpler time, to one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the US. In the mid…

Cadillac Ranch 

Kinda the coolest thing ever! Cadillac Ranch, the quirky roadside attraction on Route 66 in Amarillo, Texas has been on my bucket-list since I first heard about it years and years ago on a documentary. I was so thrilled to see it in person and more importantly, let my kiddos go nuts here! This was…
