I live in Boulder, Colorado, arguably one of the hiking capitals of the country. If I leave my desk where I spend my days creating foodservice content, I can literally be on a trail enjoying the view above in 15 minutes. If I'm hightailing it, I can make it in 10. And that includes drive time to the trailhead.
Here at TMC, we're big fans of Seth Godin's daily insights. If you don't follow him, you should.
