These weekly mountain adventures have quickly become my favorite part of Colorado. Don’t get me wrong, I love channeling my inner main character by staring out of the window on the bus, driving through the heart of the city, while listening to some Taylor Swift, but something about the mountains makes me feel like my truest self. Sitting in this hammock while listening to The Lumineers and eating a peanut butter and jelly that has been smooshed in my backpack is the tiniest glimpse into what my heaven will look like.
The picture and video above was taken at Lake Wellington which like I stated before is a place that houses a different kind of peace that can only be found in the most special and rarest of places. I sat down on this rock and tried to soak in all the beauty that my eyes were witnessing. I gazed for so long hoping that the image would be etched into my brain, so I would never forget it. I know someday I will forget exactly how it looked, but hopefully I will always remember the peace and serenity that existed in that place and the joy that I felt sitting on that rock with Harry Potter next to me. I’m glad he also gets to experience all these amazing sites with me 🙂
Feeling really thankful to be in a place and with people that value escaping into nature every weekend. It truly feels so refreshing to get away from the busyness of what a week in the city can bring, and only have to worry about what cute mountain town bakery we will go to after our hike.
