flying solo // hidden treasure trailhead

I'm done waiting for someone to go places with. Time to get out and fly solo.

Whenever someone suggests a hike to me, I add it to a list in my Google calendar. On the weekends, I take a look and see where I've not been yet. This week it was Maryland Mountain Hidden Treasure Trailhead!

Black Hawk, CO is a short 48 minute from my home in the middle of Denver. I love an hour drive out into the mountains on the weekends. It is the perfect out and back for a morning hike. I left around 9AM and arrived at the trail head right after 10AM (had to stop for gas).

Driving to Black Hawk, you twist and turn and all of the sudden in between two high cliffs are casinos! Past the massive casinos, lives historical and unique buildings. The trail head is only 3/4 past the small town. A large eagle statue welcomes you to the trailhead. I took the Historic Gilpin Tramway.

#100cupsofcoffee // abercrombie 🎸

100 Cups Of Coffee is my journey through divorce, dating & self-discovery. My single journey began in 2015 when I decided to leave my husband & again when Ocean Eyes broke up with me in May 2020. It all feels like forever ago. The ghosts of a life in transition. The days since have brought all the self-love. I'm proud of where I am, guided by therapy, and a newfound self-awareness, boundaries in place. May the odds be ever in my favor. 

"I've never seen Harry Potter, is that why I'm still single?!" What an opening line for someone reaching out to a woman with a Deathly Hallows tattoo. At least he knew where it came from!
