Oh boy, I am behind the 8 ball on the Lens-Artists challenges! BOO.
Amy over at The World is a Book is challenging us share our walking or hiking experiences. Thank goodness, as this topic is near and dear to my heart. Hiking is one of my all-time favorite activities so it wasn’t too difficult to dig up a few favorites.
This summer, I discovered one of the most beautiful hikes in Colorado (at least in my opinion). We are headed back to this trail when all of those lovely Aspen trees in the image below will be transitioning to their fall colors.
Dear mountains, I think about you all the time. ~Unknown~
Thankfully, the mountains of Colorado have seen a bunch of rain this year – at least in many places – we still have drought-stricken areas. Because of all the rain in Crested Butte, the wildflowers were INSANE.
Too much fresh air is not a thing. ~Unknown~
I had to throw in some wintery images because winter is just around the corner. Not sure how I feel about that at the moment. I mean, summer lasted all of a nano-second. Last year, we drove down to Colorado Springs for a nice weekend escape. The image below is from the Garden of the Gods. It is one of my favorite places in Colorado – when it snows in particular. I have a thing for snow-covered red rocks.
You are never too old to play outside. ~unknown~
There have been MANY epic adventures over the years. I’m looking forward to getting back to this space when the world settles down again (I could be waiting for a LONG time). The image below was taken in Iceland on the world famous Laugavegur Trail. The scenery on this trek is unbelievable. Sadly, we got stuck in some snow and sleet (IN AUGUST) on our 4 day trek so we missed out on a day or so of views. The harshness of the weather, just made for a better story. When the clouds cleared out – holy moly it was a stunnah.
Life is better in hiking boots. ~unknown~
Feeling grateful to live in the great state of Colorado. For the past 20 years, it’s been a magical place to explore on foot. We have an American holiday coming soon – I plan to lace up my shoes and hit some new trails.
Happy hiking all!
