Colorado (Garden of the Gods)

As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen.” – Winnie the Pooh

 

Hey friends!

This last summer, I went on a trip with my best friend. She and I had been talking about taking an adventure together for a long time, and we finally made it happen! We wanted hiking and mountains, and I have family in Colorado that said we could stay with them (which was perfect for our not-so-impressive college funds). So, to Colorado we went!

Our first big adventure was to the Garden of the Gods!

We both really enjoyed photographing the beautiful red rocks, despite the dense fog all over. The weather all week was pretty muggy, so we couldn’t find a better day to go. We decided to go anyways.

While walking around, the red sand stone got all over our shoes.

This is the first of the two natural hearts that I saw that day! I thought that was really cool. The other is here, too. Stay tuned!

Here’s the other heart! It’s upside down in this picture because that’s how I saw it, but it’s still cool!
