Photos from Colorado


Back in March Jess and I took a trip out to Colorado. As per usual it took me forever to process the photos I took and get around to sharing them. Here are some of my favorite shots.

View of the Flatirons from the beginning of the trail. This was our first hike on the trip. We went from sea level in Florida to 5,700 feet above sea level at the start of this trail, and then hiked up to almost 7,200 feet. The top of this trail was right under the peak of First Flatiron, which is the rightmost slab seen here. Needless to say we were struggling, but we got there and it was worth it.

Photo of snow-packed trail

We hiked the Emerald Lake trail the day we visited Rocky Mountain National Park. Even in late March, the trail was covered in feet of snow. But we did come prepared with traction devices strapped on our shoes, otherwise there was no way we would make it up there.

This view of Longs Peak and Glacier Gorge seen on our way to Dream Lake really blew me away.
