Staircase to Extreme Bacon 🥓. Tried to drive to Jackson Hole Wednesday night, but WYDOT closed 80 all the way across the state. Was pretty bummed out too as the snow up there, but ended up having two of my funnest days of the season at Steamboat and Monarch (after a failed attempt at driving to Taos that turned into a miserable 5 hr drive to get somewhere that is usually 2.5 hrs...thanks avalanches). Monarch especially was dreamy and creamy. Hidden back deep in the trees after a slog of a hike were some of the best turns I’ve had all season. I love you skiing ❤️⛷❤️

For all the mountain lions on Instagram: Silly Saturday follow up to Fantastic Friday post.... Calling "friends" luckily did not happen for Travis' sake.  And for those coming to visit Northern Colorado we assure you mountain lions cannot read.  Just to be safe though consider renting one of our camper trailers to safely slumber. 🏔🦁😱🏃‍♂️😅

PINK COTTON CANDY. Sometimes running from my home can get monotonous, and then I look up: The sky always brings a daily element of surprise on my run! Is the heavenly variety just a Colorado thing? It can’t be just us, although Colorado clouds are more dramatic than the Rockies that anchor the centennial state. I bet you’ve got a good mix of skys-capes going on in your neck of the woods too. Do tell me about it! This view on my long run reminded me of when my daughter was pink cotton candy for Halloween. That set my mind in a nostalgic direction for a good two miles. So worth it! -

Dreaming of summer this morning. I love winter especially up here on the mountain but I’m looking forward to warm days, curvy roads, and more skin. 
Maintenance on the jeep continues this weekend, new windshield being installed today and a new battery was installed yesterday. Now I’m thinking about more upgrades. 
I’m smiling because I am getting dressed in boots and jacket to chop wood this morning while the candles are burning and music is playing. 
Listening to Eric Church - Some Of It. As always his songs are ballads and this one is great.

Happy Saturday!  My name is Ashley, and welcome to The Pharr Side!  This is my love letter to all things travel-related, everyday adventures, and our off-beat moments.  Currently, I’ve been back to setting up my website to launch in a few months, so stay tuned for resources to help you save money and explore the world around you.  It’s long been my passion to share my love of the world with others, and since I’ve been doing this for a few years now, I am looking forward to making it more “official”. My husband Zach and I focus on couples, introverts, and nerd-related travel as well as getting the biggest bang for our buck, so I hope I can help others do the same.

Last year, my favorite new place we visited was Iceland; I seriously could not stop smiling the whole time we were there.  On that trip, I also returned to Ireland, which was a first for my husband and his parents, and we also visited Spain for the first time.  Our BIGGEST adventure was our cross-country move from our home state of Arkansas to Colorado; we are *still* settling in.  We also visited New York and New Orleans as well; the theme of 2018 was “NEW” all around.
---
For 2019, we have already visited NYC (again) and will be heading to Atlanta in April.  Additionally, we plan to celebrate our 10th anniversary in Disneyland!  Finally, thanks to our BIG move, we scored a free cruise that we have yet to schedule.  And along the way, we will be exploring colorful Colorado!!

Pre-gym morning. Still trying to figure out how to fit the gym back in completely with new job, 3 nights of D&D and breathing lol

It’s crazy to realize that Colorado isn’t even cold compared to many places on Earth.
But walking on frozen lakes is always a good time 🥶
Just don’t slip 😉

What's the best way to tour a Colorado city? Offroading in a jeep of course!
@coloradojeeptours is the most Coloradan way to explore Cañon City!

Cañon City is currently in second place in the @smallbusinessrevolution ! Can y'all take a minute and help us change that? 😘 Link in bio

Ok, real world trail report time, since I have been receiving numerous questions about trail conditions in Canon. 
I emailed Red Canyon Cycles before we headed to Oil Well Flats to ride on Thursday, and at that time they said the trails were good to go with just a couple of muddy spots, and that we should just ride through and not around the mud. 
Well, while maybe 95% of the trail system was good to go, the other 5% was very bad. We ended up carrying our bikes a good bit, skipping over a couple of trails that we knew would be bad, and cutting our ride short to avoid doing unnecessary damage. So contrary to what you may have heard, and the photos you may see hitting my Instagram page, I would NOT recommend riding Oil Well Flats. Any photos you do see will be from the driest portions of the trail. Also considering the forecast, I don’t see it getting better anytime soon. If you’re heading to Canon City, the South Canon trails would be a much better choice.

I can still remember the day when Hazel was around 4 months old and I was tired of feeling tired. It wasn't just the normal newborn mombie stuff--between months fertility treatments and a sedentary pregnancy, my body had stretched and grown and been wrecked by hormones. I remember needing help to get off the floor and being so, so sore all the time. I was over it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I started the Couch to 5k in attempt to lose the weight and hated every single minute. I had not yet fallen in love with running and it's really hard when you're carrying an extra 40 pounds and pushing a baby who hates the stroller. Oh, those days were so hard...🤦‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it's not about what you're doing, it's about who you're becoming in the process...and I was becoming stronger and more disiplined, both mentally and physically. It was that process that gave me the push to where I am today.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I engage with women every day who are unhappy but don't know to start to change anything. The really interesting thing is that elevating your life in one area, like taking back your health though nutrition and exercise, often spills into every other area of your life...relationships, parenting, self-care. My next wellness workshop is starting on 2/25 and I'm so excited to be leading my ladies through the same nutrition and fitness program that changed everything for me back in 2015. I have 3 spots left and you can get more information using the link in my bio then clicking on Free Wellness Assessment. 🤙🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember, it's not about what you're doing, it's about who you're becoming in the process, and the woman I am today would not even recognize the woman I was 5 years ago. Stronger, healthier, happier, more fulfilled, more loving and loved and on fire for life. ❤️

Nope, this is NOT current. In fact I probably couldn’t even fit into any of my ski clothes right now. #27weekspregnant
But I miss skiing a lot. I miss the sound of the chairlift and the feeling of my skis gliding on the snow, and even the weight of carrying skis on my shoulder (such a simple thing that I never appreciated until I couldn’t do it anymore). And I miss sleeping in our car—which was unbelievably cozy, believe it or not—where I could fall asleep watching the groomers smoothing the runs and wake up to fresh snow. 
It’s dumping in the mountains today, so if you are skiing this weekend, enjoy the powder and the adrenaline! I’ll live vicariously through you.

Nope, this is NOT current. In fact I probably couldn’t even fit into any of my ski clothes right now. #27weekspregnant  But I miss skiing a lot. I miss the sound of the chairlift and the feeling of my skis gliding on the snow, and even the weight of carrying skis on my shoulder (such a simple thing that I never appreciated until I couldn’t do it anymore). And I miss sleeping in our car—which was unbelievably cozy, believe it or not—where I could fall asleep watching the groomers smoothing the runs and wake up to fresh snow. It’s dumping in the mountains today, so if you are skiing this weekend, enjoy the powder and the adrenaline! I’ll live vicariously through you. . . . . . #colorado  #coloradogram  #coloradolife  #coloradogirl  #skiing  #rockymountains  #wintervibes  #skilife  #mountainlove  #coppermountain  #skiseason  #optoutside  #outdoorwomen  #powderday  #goplayoutside  #thegreatoutdoors  #snowdays  #choosemountains  #adventureon  #alpine  #visitcolorado  #mountainadventures  #snowymountains  #allaboutadventures  #beautifulview  #wintersport  #winterlove

I’ve realized that I’ve never introduced Charlie and Badger! So here they are, and below is some info on them;
•
Charlie (first and second slide) is a bay Quarter Horse who belongs to my brother. As you can see he is very fat but that’s because my brother never uses him 😒 He also has a weird but cute looking face. He is an ex-sheep herder and puts up with a lot. He’s seen a lot as many different people have ridden him.
~
Badger (Second and third slide) is a dark bay Quarter Horse who was bought originally for me, but he ended up being a little too much horse. Now he’s my mom’s horse who is being worked on by my lesson teacher. He has a confusing personality to say the least... But he’s a cute boy. He’s also the youngest of all our horses.
~
Both are trouble makers! When we try to catch them, it either takes us 5 minutes or 45 minutes, it all depends 😅😒😬 Also it’s basically blizzarding here and I’m sad 😔

Yesterday Tyler and I got to explore the new @dairyblock area in downtown Denver and let me just say it didn’t disappoint! 🙌🏻🥂
——
Amazing food, drinks of course 🥂🍹🍷☕️, a boutique hotel and the cutest specialty retailers. 😎
——
We topped of our day/night with a rooftop beer (the weather was gorgeous yesterday!), dinner and a comedy show - perfection 👯‍♀️
——
@michellerothenbury you and your hubby (and 🐶😉) are amazing for holding down the fort while we play! 🥰
