Carrie is such an amazing writer! She helped me evaluate my current website and offered suggestions to make it more user-friendly. She edited posts, pitched blog ideas, and then wrote them with my voice and brand utilizing keywords for SEO. She also edited the two “About Me” sections for readability and stronger branding. She is wonderful to work with, very responsive, and great at adding structure to my random thoughts.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre:

Red Rocks Amphitheatre boasts a mind-blowing outdoor concert experience, but there is more to this phenomenon of sandstone monoliths and natural acoustics. A bucket list concert venue and host to acts from the Colorado Symphony to Halsey, Red Rocks also offers a slate of other unique opportunities. Pre-Season, SnowShape offers a four-day conditioning camp for winter sports designed to hone skills on the slopes with the added bonus of post-ski socials. Summer months bring Saturday Yoga on the Rocks for those seeking balance. The series Film on the Rocks, now in its 20th year, promises cult classics shown at dusk to capture the perfect lighting and ambience for an evening of music and movies. For the outdoor enthusiast, the steps of the amphitheatre pose their own physical challenge, and the curious amateur paleontologist can find nirvana in examining the fragments of bygone era animals fossilized into the 300 foot walls of the amphitheatre. Park admission is free. Events like yoga or concerts are ticketed. Just passing through town? Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a National Historic Landmark and worthy of a spiritual fill-up and Instagram snap.

Restaurant Sample-

Momofuku offers family-style dining. Ramen is their specialty. Appetizers of rice cakes are piled with braised brisket and the grilled octopus has a beautiful char to accompany its vibrant orange coulis. It is complemented with scallion kimchi to wake up taste buds. Ramen bowls offer the spectrum of proteins. The chicken is smoky and juicy accompanied by swiss chard and soy egg. The Momofuku bowl hosts tender pork shoulder, crispy belly and cilantro. Momofuku is paradise

Outdoor Activity Sample-

Evolution Expeditions offers an alternative to the casinos in Las Vegas. Their full day kayak tours of the Black Canyon are outstanding. The first stop is to pick up a worry stone. About 30 minutes later, visitors emerge from the natural sauna cave and cast aside the stones they imbued with their everyday worries. The rest of the trip builds upon this experience. Mike, their guide, deftly navigated us down the river with lots of local information and background on the native tribes. The perfect respite from the strip.

Accommodations Sample-

The experience at Mount Cinnamon in Grenada starts with Shauna’s hospitality. A welcome punch is offered as she outlines all amenities. She is a wealth of knowledge about where to dine and must-see sights. The view from the villas are spectacular. The resort is well-stocked with kayaks and a private beach. From the complete care, to the nightly cookies delivered to your door, Mount Cinnamon exceeds expectations.
