Mountain Dreamin’

“Keep close to nature’s heart…and break away once in a while. Climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”

~John Muir


I’m day dreaming of my plans for the next weekend already. Sometimes I wonder if other people do that too. I’m just so excited to get out and explore that I’m planning the following weekend at the end of my weekend! Sounds crazy, right?! Everyone needs an escape from the congestion of life. There is so much negativity that surrounds us on a daily basis. I live for these explorations and the disconnection. Pure bliss, nature therapy, and complete relaxation. This is what makes me happy and fulfills my life. The journey to a new destination that I have never experienced before. I want to see the beauty of the world, hear the sounds of the forest, feel the warm sun on my skin. I want to get away from all the distractions of society. I want to experience Mountain Goodness.

So that’s exactly what we did. Our next adventure was to the blustery, yet incredibly gorgeous Mayflower Gulch.  The trail starts off with a quick incline through the snow. The powder covered mountain peaks are in view the whole time. I couldn’t wait to get to the top!  Skiers and snowboarders were flying past us, with the ability to make it all the way back to their cars. I was a little jealous, im not gonna lie. We will definitely be those cool people next time 🙂 Although the trail is steep in spots, its just the right length for a short day hike on the weekend. The trail was heavily populated, but it was well worth it when we got to the top! The snow was blowing off the peaks and through the sunshine rays. It was a breathtaking sight to see. There were two abandoned cabins at the summit. The rustic wood with the backdrop of the rockies was so picture worthy. I finally found what I was talking about before, total nature happiness. A huge thank you to all of our new friends that we met at the summit! We were handing out Mountain Goodness stickers and getting people stoked on adventure. It was the first time we actually told people about our brand and it felt so good.
