27 Mar A Photo Essay: Colorado in the Winter
I’ve been wanting to visit Colorado for what seems like forever. Micah got to take a short trip out there for a photo project about a year ago, but other than that, we were both new to the state and ready to explore.
Colorado got a ton of snow this winter, so it was a nice change from the dry winter we have been having in Minnesota. Our first couple nights were spent in Boulder, where we got to explore the town a bit, visit a brewery, go skiing, and try ice climbing again. After Boulder and a long morning of ice climbing, we drove to the mountains and stopped at a hot spring about 1.5 hours south of Breckenridge, where we were spending the night–it was a long day, but so worth it. I fell in love with the hot springs, and didn’t want to leave; Micah had to practically pull me away. The cascading pools and steam rooms were nice, but the actual river won me over–it was amazing!
Our last stop of the trip was for another dog sledding and snowmobiling adventure. We have done each twice this year, and although we had a blast when we did them in Utah, the scenery in Colorado blew us away. It was absolutely gorgeous everywhere we turned, and we definitely ended the trip with a bang. Here’s a peek at some of our photos from Colorado in the winter!
