There are few things better than fresh fall air in the mountains. I may be bias growing up here in Colorado, but nothing is better than the Aspen leaves changing for fall. The typical Golden season is just in September, so as soon as you have a free moment go - and if you'll miss this season add it to your bucketlist, because this beauty deserves to be seen.
Every now and then it is important to escape the city and breathe the in that Mountain Air. Especially in Colorado where the mountain air is so fresh and pure! Echo Lake is the perfect place to go for an afternoon away. Adding in Fall time and the leaves changing, you are going to be set up for a perfect fall afternoon in the Colorado Rockies.
It's the best time of year... FALL! And nothing says fall more than a good old fashion Corn Maze! I recently went to the Chatfield Farms Corn Maze sponsored by the Denver Botanic Gardens and it was amazing! I love a good ole fashion Corn Maze to get me right in the Fall time mood!
When I was little I HATED hiking. But now that I am older and wiser I can't get enough! Hiking with my mama has turned into one of my favorite activities! We opted for Devils Head to check out some changing leaves before I head back to Hawaii! I have done this hike 3 times now and each has been even more rewarding!
Colorado truly has so much to offer! There is something here for everyone, and the Sand Dunes is one of them! I had originally gone when I was very little but never remembered it! So when I finally got to be the age, and had the opportunity to go, I was STOKED!
Every year I look forward to 303 day because I LOVE to celebrate my heart and soul, Colorado. For those of you who don't know, Colorado really is THAT cool that we get our own day, 3/03. Which also means you should be listening to 3OH!3 all day haha! Or go out and do something only a Coloradan would do, like Hiking the Flatirons!
Hanging Lake is located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and is so worth the mountain drive. You may have seen it on various blogs or explore pages because it is so unique! I remember the entire hike I had this imagine in my head from seeing the pictures, but when I finally saw it I was even more impressed! Pictures hardly do it justice; it's magical.
While in Lake, City this summer, my family and I also got to do some serious off roading! While in Telluride last summer my dad, brother, and I did an off roading tour with Telluride Off-road Adventures to the old mining grounds. It was SO COOL! We knew our off roading days were not over then. So this summer when we found a few off roading sites in Lake City we were pretty excited! Even more so when we convinced my mom to come with us this time!
You Only Live Once, so why not go flying down whitewater rapids in an inflatiable boat! My original interest in adding whitewater rafting to my bucket list actually came from my parents. After they got married my mother, dad, and Opi went white water rafting and it was like the rafting scene from The Vacation. My poor father got popped out of the boat! And lets just say it wasn't smooth sailing after that! But of course I was so drawn to trying it for myself, I was itching to go!
