Red Rock Canyon
If you caught my post yesterday, listing many of my favorite hikes here in Colorado then you may have seen a glimpse of this spot. But I wanted to highlight this beauty a little bit more. Red Rock Canyon was a random discovery when I was looking at Google Maps. I had no idea this place existed. Ive never heard it mentioned in conversation. Especially not at the rate people are mentioning its famous neighbor Garden of the Gods. But I think this place is a real hidden gem. It would be a shame if you missed it while visiting its famous counterpart.
Colorado Hidden Gems
I really love uncovering the hidden gems of the world, like Red Rock Canyon. If you know me at all, every ounce of me is a natural born explorer. Experiencing new things is what I strive to do every day. That is why I started this blog, so I could create more opportunities for myself to uncover lesser-known places and share these beautiful spots with my fellow adventurers.

My goal is to build a life where I can really experience the most fascinating places for an extended period of time.
My Hiking Attire- Straight Out of My Closet Edition

It has been working really well for me so far. I haven’t bought one-piece clothing in the new year. Whenever I am tempted I just go into my closet and see if I can pull something similar out. And most of the time I can. I have so many clothes so I might as well start wearing them!
This was a trend that I was seeing in a ton of photos last summer. It is a look that is really easy to accomplish if you are just going for a minimalist approach to hiking attire. This outfit is both functional and chic for a mild day of hiking.
I found these pleated khaki pants at a thrift store. And I bought this mock neck tee from Free People a long time ago. I found this similar long sleeve version that is sustainably made out of hemp here.
And the oversized everyday oversized button-down shirt is from Madewell. Another purchase I made a long time ago. But you can still find this classic style here. This was a great purchase because I am always wearing it. Even through the seasons.
And then I threw on my favorite rustic Ariat boots. They technically aren’t hiking boots, but they work really well for a trail to
