Chautauqua National Park: Boulder Colorado…. Beautiful park or hail no?

In going to Chautauqua with my friends, I had imagined a beautiful hike with a beautiful view. The weather took an unexpected turn and we were unable to complete the flatiron hike; however, the views we got to see were truly breathtaking. Although we had a rockin’ time (haha get it?), nothing went as planned. Chautauqua is located at Baseline Rd & 9th Street, Boulder, CO 80302 not far from the campus of Boulder.

Top 5 Things to make your trip more memorable

  1. Get hailed on during the hike
  2. Get lost
  3. Fall in the mud; it’s good for your skin
  4. Spend an hour getting mud off your shoes
  5. Indulge in Subway supplied by pocket points

Slide Rock: Sedona Arizona… Sedontcha wanna come here?

Our trip to Sedona started with a quest to find the legendary sedonuts, which do not exist. So, instead, we decided to go to Slide Rock which is located in Coconino National Forest, 6871 N. Highway 89A, Sedona, AZ 86336.  Slide rock was a bit of a “rocky” experience on this day due to the water’s freezing temperature. However, disregarding the numbness of my body as I slid down, the experience was very much worth it.

Top 5 things to make your trip to Slide Rock more memorable:

  1. Ride in a minivan blasting post hard core with your best friend
  2. Search for something that doesn’t exist
  3. Get ice cream
  4. Take tons of pictures; just cause you’ll probably forget if you don’t
  5. Slide down the rock no matter the temperature
