This is a section about the area around my town, Nederland, Colorado. I am often amazed at how I can leave my house, go have a swell and sometimes serious adventure, and be back home in three hours’ time. It will seem like so much longer, but 3 hours is the most common time-frame that my local adventures take up. Occasionally my husband and I have found ourselves in a little hot water on a 4x4 road with our 4-Runner, and we end up singing the Gilligan’s Island theme song … “… a three-hour tour, a three-hour tour.” If you are looking here for advice on things to do in Nederland, it may be responsible of me to mention that we do tend to do things a little speedier than perhaps the average person. I’ll be adding posts gradually to this section, so check back once in awhile.
I hope you enjoy a little slice of my life from Colorado. And if you are enthralled by my area, remember that I also run a guest studio at my house, and you can stay with little ol’ me! You can find the link to my rental on airbnb HERE.
