The All New Land Rover Discovery Sport

There is a new kid on the Land Rover block, with quite a familiar name. From 1989 to 2005, the Land Rover Discovery held court as the very capable, budget-friendly kin to the more expensive, and luxurious, Range Rover. I’ll never forget the day I drove my Army green 1995 Land Rover Discovery off the lot. Although the vehicle was 10 years old…

Sandwichs in the City

Boulder is a great city, but we already knew that. Mountain views, miles of bike trails, craft beer worth bragging about and ... Sandwiches. That's right.

We sampled four of Boulder's premiere sandwiches to see how each one stacked…

While I do agree that the bearded hipsters in skinny jeans can take things a little too far sometimes, I’m personally enjoying…

Forest Bathing

Some days it’s challenging to decompress. With phones in our pockets that instantly connect us to anyone (anywhere!) in the world, notify us to check our email or Facebook page, update our calendar or download the latest version of some app we rarely use, it seems technology was invented to morph us into 24-hour multitaskers whether we like it or…

Boulder Rocks

Rock climbing’s history is a long one that knowingly dates as far back as 200 BC according to paintings which depict Chinese men performing the feat. The act of ascending mountains has undoubtedly been performed out of necessity in the past for hunting, religious pilgrimages, access to cliff-face dwellings and the common search for additional resources. It wasn’t until the…

Summer Beer Love

Colorado is known for many things (yes, legal marijuana comes to mind), but 300 days of sunshine per year is one that locals consider a lesser-known gem. We’re also known for being the best state for craft beer. So when you combine the sunny summer weather with craft beer, magic happens. Well, okay. It’s not quite like a leprechaun riding…
