THE SCENIC SUITCASE

Visiting Yellowstone National Park in the winter is like visiting another planet. The steam from nearby geysers creates a thick fog in the frigid temperatures, and out of the haze appears trees, wildlife, and even entire mountains! Walking through, you never know what lies just around the bend (making the adventure that much more exciting!) ❄️

“If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you.”
(As someone who stands 5’ nothing, I’m a big fan of this quote in particular. Lol) 💪🏼

Despite moving around a lot growing up, I just love living in Colorado! Even the dreary days are absolutely stunning and put a smile on my face. 😁
Where is your favorite place you’ve ever lived?

I ran I to this good lookin’ fella on a snow coach tour through Yellowstone. He and his buddy had been attacked by wolves, and the scars from the encounter were visible all over their sides and back. It’s a rough landscape where only the strongest survive. Have you been to Yellowstone during the winter? ❄️

I’ve been suffering from a major case of creative collapse. Call it the hectic holidays, but as much as I love what I do, I haven’t been able to bring myself to take photos or write worthwhile commentary (let alone an entire blog post) to save my life.
And so I opted for radio silence.🙊 Maybe I’m just overwhelmed. Or maybe I’m beginning to wonder if what I have to say really matters (or if it’s even helping anyone, which is the whole point. Isn’t it?)
I say this not because I’m fishing for encouragement (we all know THOSE people...) but because I’ve heard several other creatives say the same thing lately.
So for anyone struggling with staring at a screen and feeling utterly blank, you are not alone! Remember to give yourself grace, and that’s it’s ok to step away so you can find your voice again.
And in the meantime, go grab yourself some egg nog and indulge in a little holiday cheer. You deserve it! 🎄

I love impromptu adventures! Like the evening a friend and I decided to see a last minute sunset concert at the top of the mountain in Steamboat Springs. Little did I know that artist (@andrewduhon) would quickly become a new favorite. 🌄🎶
When was the last time you had an impromptu adventure?

My favorite place in Estes Park is looking up the valley near the Fall River Road. I can remember coming here with my dad when I was little to watch countless sunrises, bugle tons of elk, and enjoy brisk adventures on the frozen beaver pond. 🌄
Is there somewhere in the world you seem to come back to time and time again?

Do you make a habit of looking for the good? I always do! It’s become an entertaining game to take a horrible situation and look for the silver lining. 🌈
