The Heart of the Wasatch – Snowbird Dining and Hiking

Living in Utah provides a unique and incredible lifestyle that often goes overlooked by those passing over our state and heading straight for Colorado. However, nestled between the Pacific Ocean on the West Coast and the incredible 14,000 foot Rocky Mountains in Colorado, hides the Wasatch Range. Blanketing the Wasatch Mountains in the Winter, Utah boasts the world’s lightest snow. In the Summer, we have the fresh mountain air, plentiful mountain biking trails, and access…

October in Park City means that each and every day is mixed with hints of Winter and Summer. A few days ago I woke up to 3 inches of snow on my door step, yet today was in the low 70′s. The smell of wet summer grass is quickly fading away and will soon be replaced with the crispness of jack frost. I’m looking forward to leaving behind lazy summer mornings and 90 degree heat.…

Home Sweet Home –  Arriving Back in Park City in Time for Fall

After living on the road for a month, and eating out three times a day, you can’t imagine how good it feels to be in your own bed with access to your own kitchen. Kevin and I had an incredibly successful trip and collected more information than we know what to do with. We should have the restaurant guides for Colorado up and running by November, just in time for your winter vacation planning.

Steamboats Springs – Eating at Freshies and Saketumi Sushi

Like every individual ski destination sprinkled across Colorado, Steamboat offers something a bit different that its neighbors. Imagine someone sticking a little piece of Texas in the Rockies and infusing it with an old west laid back feeling. Now toss some ski bums, ranchers, hippies, and cowboys in the mix and discover what Steamboat is all about.

We pulled in on Friday and were greeted by our hostess, Emily. Emily and her husband run The…

Through the Tunnel and Over the Divide

On Friday morning we packed up the car and hit the road. We made a quick stop at Keystone to take some pictures, and then headed to Berthoud Pass.
Berthoud Pass is the U.S. 40 route that traverses and climbs the continental divide. The pass is the quickest way to the Fraser Valley, where Winter Park lays. It is also known as a popular backcountry ski destination because of its awesome snow, steep terrain and…

Exploring the Other Summit County

By Wednesday morning, Kevin and I had completed all of our business needs in Breckenridge and decided to investigate the rest of Summit County. On the road connecting Breckenridge and Dillon sits a trail head and a small parking lot. Since it was such a nice day out, we thought we would take a quick walk and snap some photos of Lake Dillon Reservoir. While walking on the trail, a girl heading back to her…

Leaving Vail

Thursday night we were invited by Steven at La Tour to come sample some of their signature entrees and desserts. We had heard great things about La Tour from a few different locals, so we were definitely excited. While La Tour is a French restaurant, it doesn’t have the same stuffy atmosphere as a lot of French restaurants we’ve visited. It is more modern, with a vibrant and contemporary dining room and bar.

After selecting…

Breckenridge Restaurants

We are currently staying in Breckenridge at a former bed and breakfast called the Colorado Pines Inn, ran by a lovely woman name Margaret. She used to rent out rooms in her house to travelers, but she currently has the house listed for sale, so it is not operating as a B&B any longer. However, the home is still set up like a B&B, and she even cooks us a hot breakfast every morning. This,…
