It’s been a couple of months since our last travels. John is getting ready to start school in September, so when my sister Jessy asked if we wanted to join her on a trip to Colorado, we jumped on it. One last hurrah!
There’s not much you have to say about Colorado, pictures are enough, so here goes:
A small trail next to Sabrina’s house
Red Rocks Amphitheater (Visit Red Rocks)
We visited Red Rocks twice during this trip, once for a Walk the Moon concert and again for Yoga on the Rocks. Looking up from a concert or while in a warrior pose to see that breathtaking view was amazing.
4th of July Trail up to Diamond Lake (Trail information / Directions)
This Colorado hike is absolutely beautiful. It was a little rough for some of us Floridians, as we still weren’t used to the altitude, but totally worth it. It took us about 5 hours round trip, we saw 3 or 4 waterfalls and the top of the trail takes you to Diamond Lake near the top of the mountains.
Estes Park, Colorado
Colorado is beautiful in August and the weather is amazing, especially in the mountains where it gets a bit cooler (a wonderful contrast to Orlando). We highly recommend the 4th of July trail and, of course, a visit to Red Rocks Amphitheater for the sunrise or sunset!
