Travel: Silverthorne, Colorado

Silverthorne

Silverthorne, Colorado

I’m writing today about a little town about an hour East of Denver, Colorado called Silverthorne. I’ll explain briefly on how to get there. Once in Denver find Interstate Highway 70 and take that East for about an hour. That’s all. Also, this photo which I found on Google of Silverthorne is looking down onto the town from the mountain. I love the picture and wanted to use it on this post here.

Ok, to the meat and potatoes of this post. I want to talk about Silverthorne because I was fortunate enough to visit this beautiful town located in the mountains during the summer of 2015. I fell in love with it instantly. It was so refreshing and so beautiful. We even managed to see a little bit of snow cap on one of the mountaintops when in town the first evening there.

What I love is that this is a small town, yet full of life. When we would go into town the people were nice and scenery was nice. What I enjoy most about was how some of the stores in town had a cabin like look to them. They didn’t look like normal stores, but mountain stores, you know?

Well anyway, this town is perfect for if you’re getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city and want some nice and cool refreshing mountain air. It’s a perfect getaway for anyone looking for a quiet weekend or week (depending on how long you want to stay).

I also want to say as I mentioned above that we went during the summer. I have no idea how it is during the winter. I can imagine busy since it’s a perfect spot for those coming into town to ski and snowboard. But during the summer it’s quiet and peaceful.

Anyway, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this. I know I didn’t give a whole lot of info but maybe gave you an idea to where Silverthorne, Colorado is and perhaps make it your next vacation spot? I’m sure there is a lot more info out there but more of what I wanted to do was let you know that it existed and give a surface idea of the town.

My Thoughts: To write a book or not to write a book?

So, I’ve wanted to write a book for a while now. As for what kind of book? I have no clue! I just know I’ve always wanted to write one.

I’ve found myself lately trying to brainstorm as to what I could write about and go after it. All I seem to know how to write is a fictional love story, which is alright but seems so generic. I want to think outside of the box and write something new and creative like J.K. Rowling did when she came up with the wonderful world of Harry Potter. That’s something I’d like to do. Not like Harry Potter obviously, but write a story that continues a few books along and take the readers on a WONDERFUL journey.

So, in the meantime I’ll just blog while I figure out what it is I’m going to write a book about. Besides, I may just end up going for the sappy fictional love story anyway. It could turn out well? Only one way to find out…

My Thoughts

Hey, I’m Steven.

If you’re reading this then either you know me or know of me through my social media. I enjoy blogging but I have to admit I haven’t been the most consistent when it comes to blogging. This blog that I’m sharing with you now is just an overview of what’s ahead in the future of what I’ll be writing about. Now, the stuff I’ll share on here will be just starting off but as I expand and learn more about life and what not I’ll add on to this other than the few topics I’ll talk about below.

Travel

I do plan on discussing about travel because it’s something that not only I enjoy but most of you enjoy too. I’ll talk about places I’ve been to and places I’ve love to go visit in the future.

Life

I’m going to discuss about life here too. I’m not just talking about my life (which I will share some of that with you, too) but life in general. Maybe an inspirational quote here or there or maybe ways to help each other out in life because let’s face it, life does suck. We all need people in our lives to help us or remind us that we can still face it head on everyday.

Food

This will definitely be one of my favorite topics. I’ll discuss some of my favorite foods and maybe share recipes on here too. But I’ll only share those if I know how to make them. Reading recipes has always been difficult for me because I’m a learn by sight person. But anyway, I’ll definitely be discussing food. I love food!

My Thoughts

Last, but certainly not least I’ll be discussing my thoughts. I’ll share what’s on my mind. It can be of a variety of topics. So you never know what you’ll get with this one. Stay tuned.

That’s it for now. I’m trying to decide whether I want to write another to get the brain flowing or not. I may since I’m in the mood for it tonight so stay tuned for more!
