7 Hiking Trails to Experience at Kicking Horse Resort

Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) endorsements rose by a figure of 12.7 percent to 2,901 loans for the month of April 2019.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Carl’s Jr. Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight (CBD)

Carl’s Jr.’s newest test item, the Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight (CBD), celebrates 4/20, features CBD oil, and is extremely elusive. The $4.20 cheeseburger is only available for one day (4/20) in one state (Colorado, where recreational marijuana use is legal) at one location (4050 Colorado Blvd. in Denver, which I assume got chosen because it has a 4 and 0 in its address). The burger features two 100% charbroiled beef patties, pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, Crisscut fries, a...

Best hikes near the Rocky Mountains

Spring is upon us. The Rocky Mountains and its sub-ranges are beginning to shed snow, colorful wildflowers are in bloom, and hiking trails that have been accessible only to cross-country skis and fat bikes for the past few months are opening up to eager hikers. Spring hiking focuses more on canyons than scrambles and meadows than summits, and these five towns are the place to base yourself for epic spring hikes throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

Best spring break trips in the US

You don’t have to do five-story beer bongs off a beachfront balcony to have a great spring break. Though let’s be honest, it’s a better story if you do. The annual respite from school and work that runs from the beginning of March to mid-April is one of the great American traditions, where college kids create memories they won’t remember, and families finally have time for some peace and quiet. Even if you can’t afford a week of debauchery in Mexico or a family jaunt to Europe, each state has...

The Long Now Foundation and a Great Basin Mountain Observatory for Long Science

Figure 1. Mt. Washington in the Snake Range, NV, with bristlecone pines.

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...

Winter storm, TSA sickouts continue to disrupt U.S. travel

A one-two punch of bad weather and longer airport security lines mean it’ll continue to be a miserable weekend for many travelers in the U.S. Winter storm Harper, a blizzard that the National Weather Service says is shifting from the Midwest into the Northeast, may leave up to two feet of snow. Strong gusty winds and bitter cold will follow, risking a dangerous flash freeze. In the West, heavy mountain snow will fall in California and the Rocky Mountain region. President Trump tweeted about the ...

The Circle is Complete: ExpressJet’s Long Journey Ends Where It Began

It has been a long road for the regional carrier ExpressJet, but the recent announcement that ExpressJet would be acquired by United (through a subsidiary) brings the airline right back to where it started. It returns to its roots as a partner-owned regional airline flying only for that partner, Continental’s corporate successor. ExpressJet began life as many regional airlines did… by rolling up a bunch of different operators into one bigger one. In this case, it was the doing of Frank Lore...

Most affordable American cities

Hasbro made headlines recently when it taglined its new Monopoly for Millennials game, “Forget real estate, you can’t afford it anyway,” which, while humorous, is only accurate in a dozen or so cities. If you’re not looking to move to San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, New York City, or other A-list locales, housing is still pretty affordable. Of course, sometimes said affordable housing is in places you can’t really envision moving. Lovely as cities like Dayton, Ohio, and Lansing, Michigan, m...

6 mountain distilleries with jaw-dropping views

While a distillery should always be judged by the quality of its booze, it doesn’t hurt when the tasting rooms also offer up sweeping mountain views with every pour. There are distilleries high up in the mountains all around the world, and one of the best times to visit is when ski season starts and the air gets crisp (although there’s never a bad time to visit). Whether you want to enjoy an apres-ski tasting in Colorado or escape the cold in Jalisco, Mexico, these six mountain distilleries p...
