Labor Day Weekend is our chance to enjoy the last weeks of summer. Spend it going on one of these adventures.
From the Scottish-American naturalist known as the “Father of the National Parks” to a U.S. Navy veteran-turned-expert-fisherman, dads and father figures come from all walks of life. They inspire us to explore the outdoors as much as ourselves.
With 300 days of summer and varying geographic terrain, you can go on an outdoor adventure any month in Colorado. Here's our list.
Microadventures encourage us to see our backyards differently and help us appreciate what we already have. It’s easy to start going on microadventures as well which means all the more reason to go on one this weekend.
There are some of us who live to travel, explore, and make a new community wherever we set foot; and that staying still is the hardest thing to do. Many of these people have found a way to make a living from their travels through vlogs. What’s a vlog? Essentially, it’s a video blog. These seven adventure vloggers routinely record their lives through 4K films or GoPro selfies so we can live vicariously through them. The viewer gets to join them on their never-ending journeys from the safety of our home. Sometimes, it even inspires us to go on our...

We don’t necessarily have to go outside to witness how amazing Nature is. We can do it from the comfort of our homes while protecting others. Whether you’re choosing to stay indoors or not, here are some amazing indoor experiences to try:
We remember our experiences over things. For example, when did you get the shirt you are wearing right now? How many times have you worn it? Chances are you don’t know because you don’t remember. So, when was the last time you went snowboarding? Where’d you go? Who were you with? You’re probably going to tell a story most people would like to hear. Things, gizmos, and gadgets don’t stick in our memories like experiences do. We’re going to ask, “What did you do over the weekend?” before we ask, “What did you buy over the weekend?” No one cares...
For those of us who spend some time outside most days of the week, a study like the 2019 Journal of Nature Scientific Reports linking time spent outside to an increased sense of well-being isn’t revelatory.
