Maroon Bells, a pair of twin peaks known for being some of the most photographed mountains in North America. Yet, somehow I’d never heard of them until 2014.
Things to do.
Great Sand Dunes National Park
Dunes in June = hot hot hot. Don’t wear shoes, you’ll regret it. Don’t go shoeless, you’ll regret that too. Sandals FTW.
Aspen Cross Country Center
…because why not try a super taxing sport at altitude that you haven’t done in almost 30 years? Seems like a good idea for a SNOWBOARDER 😬
On my fourth trip to the summit, I finally made it out to ride Ajax, Aspen’s crown jewel.
In addition to the stunningly blue view, for Christmas, I got my first ever parking ticket from the State of Hawaii. Mele Kalikimaka.
Koko Crater Trail
Koko Crater. Heard TONS about this hike in Oahu, therefore despite the windy and rainy conditions we have it a go anyway.
One day, I will make it down this mountain on a snowboard, not a gondola. Played it safe in 2019.
Fort Lauderdale Beach Park
Sometimes you’ve just gotta take the late flight home so you can take GoPro selfies and get some sand between your toes in DECEMBER.
Blue Man Group
I came, I saw, I selfied. Crazy eyes… who did it better?
Seven Magic Mountains
As of 2016, Seven Magic Mountains was intended to be a two-year exhibition located in the desert outside of Las Vegas. December 2018 it was still standing. Forgot to go back and check in July 2019. Whoops.
Not a bad place to spend a business trip. Wonderful photo ops abound, but keep in mind that everyone’s on island time.
Fun Fact: Target HQ is on Nicollet Mall
