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.

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 #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!

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!

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!
