My First Staycation

I’m going on my first staycation this weekend. Well, no, not really. I suppose I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying right here in Denver, hanging out with my puppy, and doing some things around town.

Hanging with the Modern Masters at the Denver Art Museum

The best part of my weekend was spent with a friend checking out Modern Masters at the Denver Art Museum. The exhibition, which is traveling from the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, is the museum’s latest venture into awesomeness. How so?

Hiking in Colorado’s Waterton Canyon

Colorado’s Waterton Canyon is the start for hiking the Colorado Trail, the 486-mile-long hike from Denver to Durango. When I set out, I didn’t intend to do nearly that much. Not even close. I only wanted a quick six mile jaunt in and out. At the end of the day, though, I had done about […]

Checking Out Spun at the Denver Art Museum

The Denver Art Museum’s Spun: Adventures in Textiles opened this weekend. I stopped in yesterday, excited to see what all the hype was about in all of the local media. I needed no more than a foot in the first gallery to understand, and be excited for what awaited me in the rest of the […]
