Weekend Recap: Misty Meadow Mountain and Vail Beer Festival

Sadie_Misty_Meadow_Mountain

Friday was my company’s annual promotion day, where all the promotions for the year are announced, and we celebrate. This year, we were still obviously not doing an in-person celebration, but our local office arranged for a magician to perform on Zoom (and he was┬áphenomenal, – I wasn’t expecting much over Zoom, but it was awesome!), and the national organization arranged for Keith Urban to perform. I haven’t really listened to much Keith Urban in a while, but I got really into it, singing and dancing in front of my laptop screen ­čÖé Now I want to go to a …

Weekend Recap: Hiking, Eating, and Drinking My Way Through the Mountains

Laura_Hiking_Down_Game_Creek_Trail

My weekend kicked off a little bit early – my date and I headed to Minturn on Thursday night, stopping at Outer Range Brewing for fried chicken sandwiches on the way up, and then worked from there on Friday. I had a really light day of meetings, and it was nice to get a change of scenery while digging into some deep work! My original plan on Friday morning was to do an early morning run of Meadow Mountain before work, but I ended up lounging around and really not getting in a workout at all, outside of a quick …

Weekend Recap: Double Dog Date Weekend

Sadie_Loves_Heather_Avery

My work day on Friday ended in an excellent way – with a wine tasting! I had a pretty frenetic work day up until then, but it was really nice to know that there was a hard stop to the day. This event had fifty people, and I did a class on the basics of wine tasting, then we tasted a variety of Coppola wines. I had actually visited the Coppola winery when I went to Sonoma years ago, and it’s a really cool place to visit! However, I have to admit that the wines are not totally my favorite …

Weekend Recap: Accidental Long Hike

90s_Nickelodeon_Party

Friday was a super hot day, so I worked from the basement all day. But in the evening, I had something fun planned – a happy hour on the deck at my friend Chris’ house! It ended up actually being still hot in the evening, and while I had initially thought maybe I’d go over and just have water, I ended up drinking almost an entire bottle of wine… oops! So much for my plan to not drink. But I was walking home, and had a fun time with Chris and Mark and Kate, and that’s what really matters. I …

Weekend Recap: Mountain Weekend of Unplanned Rest Days

Elk_Calving_Trail_Closure

My weekend started out a little bit early, as I headed to the mountains Thursday after work. My company was giving us a four day weekend for Memorial Day, and I was excited to get started! I took a long time to get going on Friday morning, both reading in bed and then eventually really craving a bagel. I decided to go to Avon to pick one up before heading out to hike. On the way back, Sadie and I saw a moose on the side of the road, right next to the trailhead where I was planning to hike. …
