Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Colorado plains

Driving through a storm on the Colorado plains while the mountains beckon in the sunshine in the distance

The first time I drove through Colorado I was really surprised with the Colorado plains. I figured the whole state would be mountains, so I was surprised by the long drive to Denver through the grassy hilly plains area. Not that this area is not pretty: like a desert it has a stark quality about it that is actually alluring. This shot was taken as I was driving out of a storm approaching Denver and the Rocky Mountains in the distance.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
