Explore 1 new place per month that I haven’t been to or haven’t explored enough. January and February may be a little snow in terms of places to explore as I will be having a specialty therapy/procedure done in early January on my leg and there is a 4-6 week recovery period. That just means I’ll have to do double duty with the following months!
The 12 (or so) new places I want to explore in/around Colorado Springs:
Castle Rock Hike
Cave of the Winds
Fountain Creek Nature Center
Mueller State Park
Black Forest Regional Park
Austin Bluffs Open Space: Pulpit Rock Trail
Focus on the Family
Serenity Springs Wildlife Center
Since I will be working on me this year, I am planning on taking my birthday off and treating myself to a day of relaxation. I plan on getting a 1-1.5 hour full body massage, a pedicure, my hair cut and washed and a scalp treatment as well.
