This camping trip was planned months ago with the intention of landing during the peak of Fall color in the Colorado Rockies. It is the time of year when the crisp, fresh, Fall air heightens your senses, and the scenery is almost magical. I was looking forward to hiking through the forest with golden aspen shimmering against a brilliant blue sky above, creating dappled shadows that dance on a thick carpet of bright yellow leaves along the trail. Anyway, that's what it looked like in my head...

Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) made a nice escape from the summer heat this weekend - and all the better in the Airstream at a campground that overlooks an expansive mountain lake with a cool mist rising over the waters each morning. Afternoons were spent hiking rain-fresh trails and then relaxing back at camp with a good book and a warm cup of coffee as early evening thunderstorms set in each day. Sometimes I wish the weekend would never end! More photos/blog here.

I'm not usually an impulse buyer, but I couldn't resist purchasing this nerdy camping gadget. It is a camp stove and grill that literally runs on twigs, pine cones, and sticks, and it can recharge a cell phone using a built-in thermoelectric generator. I can't wait to kick back, grill squirrel-burgers, and endlessly play Angry Birds and Farmville during the next zombie Apocalypse. More Photos/Blog Here.

We stayed close to home this weekend with a return trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. The highlight of the weekend was an encounter with a friendly, photogenic moose that seemed to enjoy (or at least tolerate) lots of camera-happy tourists. More photos/video/blog here.

This weekend's Airstream outing landed us atop Pike's Peak for breathtaking views of Colorado scenery. We boarded a bright red cog railway car in Manitou Springs and enjoyed the hour and 15 minute ride through a ponderosa pine forest, along mountain streams, past pristine mountain lakes, and across boulder fields inhabited by marmots and mountain goats.
