From the Editor- Straycation 2014


Confession: Since my childhood days of watching Hey Dude on Nickelodeon I’ve dreamed of visiting a dude ranch. Last summer when I had the chance to stay at Colorado’s finest ranches…I couldn’t pass it up! Disconnecting from the digital world and spending a week on horseback in the mountains made me see why so many come back each year.

Our second annual Straycation Issue features a story on this trip and others in Arizona and Utah. For the occasion, we’ve changed the focus of the Starting Line from races to festivals and have highlighted our favorites for your summer calendar. Flip to page 29 to learn about our Summer Social Media Photo Contest that celebrates our Instagram launch with incredible prizes: a digital camera, hotel stays, and restaurant gift cards.

Happy adventuring!

Editor Jenny Willden
