It’s been three weeks since we moved into our new home in Fort Collins, and we couldn’t be happier! Although moving, packing, and unpacking are always stressful, the joys of discovering a new city outweighs all of the headaches. The first time we explored Horsetooth Reservoir was a little over a year ago when I first visited Fort Collins. It’s truly a magical place and only a ten minute drive from our house, which still seems unbelievable to me. Although we lived only 30 minutes from the beach in California, we never had much time to go because we were so busy and traffic always seemed to dictate our lives. The energy here in Fort Collins and in Colorado in general is much more laid back and peaceful I would say. It feels like people have more time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, which is one of the many reasons we chose to move here. Ok, so back to Horsetooth Reservoir. I think if I went here every week I wouldn’t get bored of it. It is such a beautiful place to escape to when you want to feel a little closer to nature. We are already so close living in Fort Collins but this place is amazing! Boating, hiking, biking, camping, picnic areas, you name it, they have it!
