vlog #01 | Much Needed Sunrise

explorewithollie vlogs

In an effort to challenge myself to be more comfortable (and less awkward) in front of the camera, Ollie and I take to the road to explore more of Colorado and share our adventures more closely.

vlog #01 | Much Needed Sunrise

Kicking off our video blog "vlog" series of my adventures alongside my pup Ollie, @explorewithollie. Catching the sunrise off the Ute Indian Trail in Colorado Springs, then bouncing over to Loyal Coffee for some delicious coffee and fun coffeeshop hangs.

vlog #02 | It's about time

Kicking off another weekend vlog, this time with my friend Ashley Martin in Carbondale. We visited the Maroon Bells for sunrise, the famous Crystal Mill, and the historic Redstone Coke Ovens. Even tried Rocky Mountain Oysters for the first time! Thanks Mountain Standard and Ruffwear for the adventure essentials.

vlog #3 | Castles Made of Sand

Back at it with another adventure weekend in the San Luis Valley. We hit up Colorado's Great Sand Dunes National Park and the beautiful Zapata Falls. Amazing weekend with friends and enjoying all the perks car camping has to offer... a.k.a. BEER!

vlog #04 | A Little Family Time

Spend an amazing weekend with family in Grand Junction. Hiked Mount Garfield for an amazing sunrise, hung out with my two cute little nephews, and explored Rifle Falls State Park with the pup. Special shoutout to my mom on a fun Mothers Day weekend. Love you!

vlog #05 | Getting Crafty

Fun weekend adventuring in own city, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Stopped off at Palmer Park for a little morning hike, then spent the afternoon at Native Instinct Co. for a little demonstration on how their amazing products are made!

vlog #06 | Summits for Sunrise

Spent Memorial Day weekend hiking our 35th Colorado Fourteener together, Uncompahgre Peak (14,308'). Camping, sunrise summit, good vibes, and an old vintage gondola ride. Weekend adventures don't get much better than this.

vlog #07 | Coffee is Life

Incredible weekend with friends camping out near Gunnison, CO at the Hartman Rocks Recreation Area. Camping, climbing, biking, and of course... coffee! Thanks to Kuju Coffee for outfitting us with all the yummy delicious coffee drinks to keep us awake and adventuring strong!

vlog #08 | Uncle Time

Spent the weekend up in Denver fulfilling my uncle duties with my little nephews. Can never get enough of how amazing and smart these little guys are growing up to be. Can’t wait to steal them away for long weekend adventures!

vlog #09 | Two for One

Spent the weekend trekking up to the top of Mount Blanca and Ellingwood Point down in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. 2:30am start for a long 9 plus hour day of hiking. This marks Ollie's 36th and 37th Fourteener, slowly pushing up to be over 40 for him by the end of the summit season this year!
