I want to have an ADVENTURE. Or, ten.
I think that my New Year’s resolution (yeah, I know January 1 is more than a month away, but hey, I’m a planner) is going to be to become an authentic Colorado girl.
In fact, I’ve started a
Procrastination Pinterest board dedicated to all things Colorado. I just so happen to live in this great state, but I’ve barely scratched the surface of all it has to offer. I’ve lived out on the plains all my life, which has lent itself to plenty of adventure. I’ve custom combined wheat, moved cattle on horseback, gotten flat tires, and found arrowheads. For those who think adventure is only found at altitude, you try running over a rattlesnake with a lawnmower. If that’s not exciting, then I don’t know what is.
However, I think it’s time to broaden my horizons, travel around a little. This year, I’ve had a little taste of what adventure is.
As it turns out, adventure kind of tastes like predawn frost, blackberries, and terror. I’m hungry for more.
I want to:
Climb Long’s Peak
Soak in the Glenwood Hot Springs
Sled down the Great Sand Dunes
Visit Four Corners
See the hot air balloons, either in Loveland or Colorado Springs
Go to a concert at Red Rocks
Camp in the mountains
Fish wherever the fishin’s good
I need to:
Get a real job. (Turns out, adventure requires a little funding.)
Get a real backpack.
