Colorado Recap

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I took a trip to Colorado recently! I headed out to Estes Park with my best friend for a week of relaxation and exploration, and book-ended the trip with weekends in Denver. I had never been to the state before, and after that trip, I know it won't be my last!

On our first day in Denver, we caught the Brewer v. Rockies game at Coors Field. It was so hot... I'm not used to near 100 degree temps! Truth be told, we only spent about five minutes in our seats because they were positioned directly in the sun. Though, we did enjoy exploring the stadium (and the food options haha)!

Estes Park was gorgeous - check out those mountains in the background! We spent some time goofing around at our resort (pictured above) and went on a couple hikes. Of course, we also did some beer and wine tastings because what's a vacation without a few libations? I'll admit, my first day in Estes Park wasn't ideal... turns out altitude adjustment is a real thing. After a day of adjusting to the elevation, the rest of the week went smoothly. 

We closed our trip with a sunset flight back to the Midwest (and some elk jerky). I was greeted at the airport by my soggy luggage (due to a torrential downpour and liquid explosions within my bag) which was a telling sign - maybe I should have just stayed there forever? Oh well, you can't win 'em all!
