I cannot believe how quickly my time in Colorado flew by or how madly I fell in love with that beautiful state! I’ve been to quite a few mountainous destinations in travels’ past, yet no matter how many times I encounter mountains, I am always awestruck by their powerful presence. Having grown up in the flatland Chicago suburbs, I have always marveled over the allure of the mountains. Hell, I still occasionally find myself giddy over the rolling hills of Wisconsin for goodness sake. So as you might have guessed, I had an incredible time exploring these new places, and I cannot wait to return.
On top of the amazing natural scenery, Denver was full of so much well-done design at every turn that I couldn’t help but smile (and snag a few pieces for myself to bring home!). Whether I was walking down the street looking at the logos of local stores or reading restaurant menus, I was always greeted with clean, thoughtful design. Talk about a refreshing vacation!
What’s not to love? I did my best to take quite a few photos on the this journey, so be on the look out for a follow up post within the next week with even more from this excursion!
