Tropical Trail Mix - A tropical take on trail mix that’s packed with nuts, chocolate and a variety of tropical fruit.
Have you been to the Rocky Mountains? I may be biased, but they’re my favorite mountains. Maybe I love the mountains so much because they force me to fully disconnect, and I get a sense of perspective I get standing next to them. Either way, heading to the mountains is a wonderful excuse to relax and breathe in that wonderful mountain air.
A mountain story
After a bumpy, rock-filled drive in, we found our (not-so-quiet as it turns out...) little camp spot and set up shop. Who knew our neighbors would grow from one tent to twelve? We learned an important lesson – if the dirt road you choose is marked by a bright plastic bag tied to a tree, it might be calling a few others to your neighborhood…
Music and shouting late into the night still can’t ruin my time in the woods. Hiking, taking in the sights, building a fire and cooking some delicious food makes it all worthwhile. Roughing it (at least so far as a car full of supplies goes) in nature is my favorite way to spend a day. It’s so peaceful. A gentle breeze and the lovely music of birds.

Nature is my favorite stress-reliever. Listening to those pine needles crunch underfoot, the sound of the crackling fire, and of course taking in all the smells. Pine trees, soil, burning logs and mountain air. See the sights—densely packed pines and aspens, the vast valley below and clear blue sky above (mostly). Taste the campfire treats and trail snacks. Sign me up for campfire apple crisp! It was as good as it sounds!
