Thursday, July 12: Dixon Reservoir & The HESI A2

I haven’t been doing much physical hiking lately, but I feel like studying for the HESI has been like a mental hike up Everest. BUT, yesterday I said fuck it and went and took the exam, did well, and I applied for nursing school this morning! So, here’s to a little upcoming free time and…

Monday, June 4: Arthur’s Rock Trail & One Year Back in Colorado

I’ve mostly been at work throughout the past few weeks (I gifted myself two new pairs of work shoes this week after googling “best shoes for nurses.” Self love is where it’s at and I’ve been anxiously waiting by the door for the packages to arrive). BUT, I have been able to take some time…

May the 4th Be With You: Bikes & Brews

It’s been a few years, which probably worked to my advantage…

Monday, April 2: Devil’s Backbone

This hike was a shorty but a goody! It was my first time hiking at this open space, and I actually hadn’t heard of it until the other day. The landscape was super neat though, and this might be one of my favorite scenery hikes in the front range area. I accidentally turned the tracking…

Sunday, April 1: Lady Moon Trail

Happy Easter weekend! I’m not religious, so I won’t pretend to be, but I do appreciate those days set aside to relax, slow down, and spend time with loved ones (&& eat too much food). Today I headed up towards the Red Feather Lakes area to go for a hike before heading to my aunt…
