Monarch Crest Trail

Colin and I recently returned from our Colorado Trail excursion. While we didn’t ride the trail end to end we did have an amazing trip and rode over 260 miles and climbed 20,000 feet in the process. We bikepacked from just outside of Denver to Breckenridge then decided to rent a car and ride singletrack around the state without all of our bikepacking gear. We rode some amazing trails around Salida, Crested Butte and Durango and camped in some amazing spots along the way.

If you’ve been searching for a building with a clear – and poignant – diagram then look no further than Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo’s house. Designed by Juan O’Gorman and completed in 1931, the house makes a bold statement in a verdant Click to Read More

Flake|Lato 2012

So if the pool party at Greg’s house represents the unofficial beginning of summer, Flake|Lato represents its unofficial end. Flake|Lato is the annual retreat the office takes to Ted’s family ranch located at the headwaters of the Nueces River 120 miles west of San Antonio. The ranch provides an idyllic location for employees to gather with their families to enjoy one another’s company while eating, drinking and frolicking in the clear, cool spring-fed water.
