Outdoor Retailer

My blogger friend, Lauren of SMTT, wrote a post a while ago about the Makings of a Great Blog. One of her callouts is having dependable content- which is absolutely true- I visit the sites that post daily and the ones that don't fall off my radar. 
Not that I am necessarily in the business of collecting readers- but even with Em is a Gem I posted in an incredibly regular cadence of Sunday- Thursday each week. 
It bugs my routine-centric tendencies when I don't get to blogging every day despite best intentions. 

I was home for a full day after Denver before heading out to Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City. As horse folks, we're generally aligned with the great outdoors and this trade show is simply a mecca for every outdoor brand. From the enormous set-ups by North Face, Marmot, Under Armour to the pro-deals from Smartwool and Danner- it is easily and away my favorite show of the year. 

Relaxing (and blogging!) for a few days at home before hitting Philly on Wednesday for the English AETA show! 
View of the Rockies heading into the show each day....before the sun comes up!

Notice the Elkhorn Chandelier?

Outside of Salt Palace waiting for our shuttle back to the hotel!

Pretty sweet conference room!


I've seen dogs (even a Lama!) at the show- but Kenneth the cat was a first!


  1. That elk horn chandelier is awesome! Someday I'd like to have a cabin or density one of those. I love them!

  2. lol that cat looks like he could tell some stories

  3. Those shows look like so much fun to wander around in. :-)

  4. I think you're dependable :) I've always wanted to go to CO but have never been!
