My trip last week to Colorado was absolutely amazing!  Hadn’t been in years and I feel that I appreciated this trip so much more than trips in the past.

I love that part of the country and being there, even for a few days, really helped me center myself and gave me a new boost of energy in life.

I love the mountains and the forest more than I could ever explain.

Going from top to bottom, left to right:

  2. Phantom Canyon Rd.
  3. Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado
  4. Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado
  5. Peak to Peak Scenic Byway
  6. Bear Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park
  7. Nymph Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park
  8. Dream Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park
  9. Emerald Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park
  10. Hallet Peak in the distance, Rocky Mountain National Park

Now I understand  the saying , “For purple mountain majesties, Above the fruited plain!”. This is where the lyrics of America the Beautiful was first thought of. Thats cool, if you ask me!
