My beautiful sister hiking Colorado Red Rocks with me in the wonderfully freezing and windy winter desert. Cold weather is my jam and I’ve been missing it so much this year! @shebleedsferocity

Oops, I haven’t posted in 4 days. I randomly came down with a cold a few days ago and have been hibernating 😅 Here, have a picture of Nimbus in front of a waterfall from over the summer 🖤 . Keep an eye out tomorrow for a post I’m really excited for! We’ve been working with a great company on ideas for how one of their products could be used by service dog handlers and people who travel with their pets! It has to do with absorption, so this waterfall has me thinking about it 🤣 . #dogsthathike #waterfall #nationalforest #arapahoenationalforest #northerncolorado #CO14 #poudrecanyon #poudrefalls #cameronsummitpass #colorado #colorfulcolorado #hikingwithdogs #servicedog #medicalalertdog #cardiacalertdog #assistancedog #standardpoodle #dogsthatexplore

First day riding of the season. Weather forecast called for a partly cloudy day but we drove into this weather. At times it was DUMPING and add that to the overnight snow it made for an incredible powder day. I had a permanent grin every run. Hope this is a preview of what this winter has in store. . . . . . #getoutside #lifeofadventure #takemoreadventures #liveoutdoors #wherewillwegonext #exploremore #earthoutdoors #staywild #keepitwild #optoutside #simplyadventure #wildernessculture #earthoutdoors #mypubliclands #explorecolorado #colorfulcolorado #viewcolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradolife #viewsfromcolorado #coloradolove #coloradomountains #neverstopexploring #planetearth #raisedoncolorado #coppermountain #ilovewinter #prayforsnow #snowboarder #snowboardlife

DENVER GAS & ELECTRIC “Erected in 1910, the 10-story Denver Gas & Electric Building (also known as the Public Service Company Building) once served as a single vast advertisement for the wonders of electricity, thanks to the 13,000 lightbulbs embedded in its white terra cotta façade. The bulbs went dark for a time after World War II but were rewired in the 1990s, and the building once again lights up Denver’s central business district each night. Designed by local firm of Frank E. Edbrooke & Company, the building is an example of the early skyscraper style pioneered by Louis J. Sullivan of Chicago. The geometric patterns created by the bulbs, along with dramatic details such as the arched tenth-floor windows, ensure that the building is a striking sight by daylight as well.” #colorfulcolorado #coloradogram #coloradophotography #colorado #coloradoinstagram #303magazine #westword #denverpost #denvernow #coloradoshared #1000thingstodoindenver #beon9 #outtherecolorado #5280magazine #cityofdenver #viewsfromcolorado #coloradophotographygroup #naturalcolorado #thatssocolorado #colorado_creative #visitdenver

How to hike in the snow with a skirt on: step 1: wear 3 shirts with a thermal layer underneath. Step 2: wear jeans with thermal fleece lined leggings underneath. Step 3: put on your skirt. Step 4: bundle your skirt around your shirt and Step 5: put on your warm winter jacket. Then when it comes time for a photo, all you do is take off your jacket and voilà! A romantic princess-in-the-snow fairytale photoshoot! Do you ever get this crazy for a photoshoot? 🙃 Side note- you'll be so surprised to see where the majority of this outfit is from!

I got back on the figurative horse today. My knee injury was pretty traumatic for me, and I was having a lot of anxiety about this day. I'm grateful for a body that can still bounce back, albeit at a much slower pace than it once could. I'm grateful for girlfriends who encourage and support me. And I'm grateful for this gorgeous state that I get to call home!

💎 December has four birthstones, and this week we look at a sparkling classic: Blue Topaz. Topaz is a durable, beautiful orthorhombic mineral which forms in many colors. Though the blue shade is considered rare in nature, it can be found in Colorado and other localities around the world; most blue topaz on the market has been treated (heated or irradiated) to enhance the blue shades. London blue topaz, seen here, is an ink blue shade that is particularly sought after! Blue topaz is associated with the throat chakra, and is believed to enhance communication and self-expression. Blue topaz is one of the prettiest of the birthstones, and lucky December babies have more to choose from as well...(Pendant: $150, strand: $170, Earrings: $92.) #tobecontinued #londonbluetopaz #bluetopaz #birthstone #decemberbirthstone #faceted #gems #gemstonejewelry #sterlingsilver #minerals #handmade #trueblue #babyblue #crystals #gemmy #elloro #elloroboulder #downtown #boulder #colorado #colorfulcolorado

This is the first time I have seen a sunrise so intensely color snow. What a wonderful sight. . . FOLLOW @arwin.l for more landscapes. . . In order to get the sun to color the snow at sunrise the first light needs to hit the snow. Usually it will start pink, then turn gold, then white. On flat land this is relatively easy, but in mountains it is harder because there are often other peaks and ridges preventing the first light from hitting the spot. The photographers ephemeris is a great app (and web application) that can help you determine in advance if your chosen spot will receive “first light.” let me know in the comments if you would be interested in more information on this.

The sunset on the Mesa was so colorful and bright that it reflected on the semi-icy/wet road. In other news, my Mom puts me on speaker phone every single time I call her. Anyone else? I wonder how many strangers in her local Kohl's know my business 😂😂🙃🙃 . . . .

📷 @ascender_studio - This is my kind of Sunday blues. My favorite place in Colorado so far, Twin Lakes, south of Leadville. Our first night consisted of a dinner of hotdog buns with mustard and ketchup sitting in our car. A late day storm blew in. The wind kept the flames on our burners from heating the water for the mac and cheese, plus the elevation meant boiling would take longer to cook. Then the rain came and doused the campfire so our hotdogs were burnt on the outside and raw in the middle. 😂 Pretty soon it was too dark and cold to do anything so we had another inside-the-car picnic and finished by watching shooting stars. . . . . #rockymountainlife #outdoorphotography #landscape_lovers #twinlakes #twinlakescolorado #landscapephotography #denverdaytrips #beautifulcolorado #mountain_world #viewcolorado #visitcolorado #escapethecity #travelcolorado #coloradogram #neverstopexploring #letsgetlost #goexplore #justgoshoot #colorfulcolorado #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #optoutside #landscape_capture #whyhike #seekthetrails

Been feeling an overwhelming immense amount of gratitude in my life lately. I'm in serious awe of how much my life has changed over the few years. This year has been one of the best years of my life. I've had so much opportunity to discover myself on a deeper level and love myself more than I ever have. I've met so many amazing and inspiring people this year, the amount of love that I'm receiving from all of you lifts me up on a daily. Although I'm still learning how to be. I remember only a few years back I was in the deepest and darkest places with myself and my life. My daughter was 6 months old when my mother passed and my dad moved states away all in the same month. I distinctly remember losing myself completely as a person. I fell so deep into darkness that somehow I found some hope and drive to pick myself up. Since then, I was dedicated to never let myself feel that low again. It took years to build myself back up again, to where I'm genuinely happy with myself and my life. I've built solid ground for my life and my daughter. Moving to Colorado has been one of the best decisions for me, although living a far from family can be difficult and challenging at times, i have only been gifted great opportunities since I've moved here. The friends that I've made over the years have been so inspiring, loving, accepting and driven. You guys motivate me every day and im so lucky to have you guys in my life. Thank you for accepting me wholeheartedly and embracing me with so much love. I'm continuing to grow, change my mindset for the better, adopt better habits, and tap into a deeper more meaningful authentic life for myself than ever before. I'm proud of how much progress I've made as an individual and I honestly cant wait for what the future holds. I'm thankful to be alive and I'm grateful for each experience life has to offer me, good or bad, I am able to control how I react to it all and I'm choosing to find happiness in each moment of my life. . . . . . #valueyourself #knowthyself #knowyourworth #honoryourtruth #positivevibes #pretty #progress #wisdom #lifeisgood #thankful #love #gratitude #change #colorfulcolorado #curly #inkedgirls
