Good Morning! I hope those of you from here in Colorado are nestled up to a fire, or at least a loved one. Colorado has been hit with a huge snow storm just in time for Halloween-Yeah!!! The early snow means that I really have to get my winter brain on, and prepare for a new adventure here at The Royal Ranch. We are going to be renting snow shoes this year!
As many of you know, our little piece of paradise is located at the bases of spectacular Mts. Rosalie and Logan, outside of Bailey, CO. There are multiple Pike National Forest trailheads within one mile of our ranch, so it seems only fitting with our "share the love of nature" businesses and philosophy to add snow shoe rental to the list. We have been collecting all sorts of snow shoes to get ready for this big winter we have ahead of us.
For those of you who can't make it a day trip, let me know, and we may just be able to fit you in at The Royal Roost! That way you could spend your days snow shoeing and your evenings in front of the roaring fire in your own private cabin. With the Roost, comes access to our own private trailhead, that is very rarely used.
Yes, this is all a shameless plug, but it is much more than that. It is an invitation to get out and enjoy and learn about our amazing environment. Snow shoeing can burn up to 400 calories an hour! The benefits go even further than that, with normal exercise a person's endorphins are released, as well as when a person is very happy and in a peaceful environment. Snow shoeing is a double whammy! So even if you can't come and visit us, get out there and enjoy Mother Nature, all the while getting a great dose of exercise.
Have a miracle of a day!
