CRAZY ABOUT COLORADO

and our quirky Colorado outdoor addictions

LETS GET LOST IN COLORADO TOGETHER, read more…

Hi, my name is Connie, an avid outdoor enthusiast and I literally get crazy with excitement each time I wander around all the hidden gems in Colorado. Hoping to inspire you, engage you and most definitely help send you on your way to becoming a quirky Colorado outdoor addict!

I’ve had the privilege of living in the mountains of Colorado for most of my life. Such an adventure here raising my kids. I dragged them everywhere from the time they were just tiny tots. I now drag my husband everywhere, which he does with a smile and a little hesitation, wondering “where are we going”… “what are we gonna do”… “how far up are we gonna hike”… “really, paddleboarding”… “did you say skiing” …. and so on… he’s a good sport!

No matter where you are there’s wonder at every turn, in this, our Colorado. For myself, it is where GOD speaks to me, takes my burdens in the quietness of his creation, into the mountains, down a trail… summer or winter.

On other days it is the fun atmosphere of so many festivals, funky towns, eateries, fun shops, and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
