Once in a Blue Moon.

Once in a Blue Moon.

(Denver, Colorado): For most of us the moon has always been pretty cool. We watched in wonder as Neil Armstrong landed on it. As children, the cow jumped over it and we were all convinced that it was made of cheese. Well, come this January 31 the moon will turn to a Blue Moon.  You might say we are a curious Cloud, so we turned to our friends and experts at Denver’s Museum of Nature and Science. The Museum is also home to Gates Planetarium and Dr. Steve Lee.  Dr. Lee is a Space Scientist in the Adult & Children’s Programs Department at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and is a Senior Research Scientist at the Space Science Institute (SSI) in Boulder, CO. He is a science advisor to […]

A Wonderful Weekend In The West.

(Vail, Colorado): We love the Alpine Sports and Colorado’s remarkable resorts. It may not be snowing along the front range but the high country is a winter wonderland of snow. January is National Safety Month at ski resorts across America, and our friends at Colorado Ski Country USA member resorts are hosting safety-related programs across the state. Every year, Colorado’s ski resorts hold safety demonstrations and programming to educate guests about best safety practices and remind skiers and riders, whether they are new to the sport or long-time veterans, that each skier or rider is responsible for ensuring they stay safe on the slopes. January events include ski patrol demonstrations, avalanche safety training, visits with resorts’ highly trained avalanche dogs, and helmet and safety giveaways. After years […]

It Was A Fun Snow Day!

(Golden, Colorado): Sunday was a great snow day in Colorado. From Golden, to The Golden Triangle, the city was bursting with life. In spite of the slippery roads in every corner of the state: families made it to church, the market and the movies. Even the nice little workout of clearing the sidewalk before nightfall proved to be a nice outing between NFL Championship Games. By sunset, The National Weather Service reported as many as 8 inches of measurable snowfall in Boulder and 6 inches in Jefferson County. The pictures shared on social media tell the story best: It was a fun day! From family fun to happy dog owners frolicking in our parks, the snow made way for a great […]

The Natural Stairmaster of Red Rocks Amphitheater.

(Morrison, Colorado): As our crazy winter weather continues, you might want to skip the gym and head to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison. The natural wonder provides the perfect amount of stairs and open air to insure a very sturdy work-out. You won’t need an expensive membership to get your heart rate up and your glutes firing with all those steps (there’s 192 to be exact). Just head to west on Morrison Road from anywhere in Jeffco. Covering the 70-rows from the center, up-and-down and end-to-end is about 3 miles. The elevation, at 6,450 above sea level, combined with its natural beauty make for a breath taking work out. Might make a fun play-date with a special friend. There’s plenty of fun dining in town (the […]
