Wow, where do I even start! Colorado is the most breath taking, relaxing, amazing state I’ve ever been to. The only thing I wasn’t too fond of was the weather, but that was partially my fault I was very under prepared.
We stayed at the Marriot in the Denver Tech Center, which was a newly built hotel, and crazy gorgeous! There was this Italian restaurant across the street that was so beautiful, it lit up the entire street. The view from the hotel was amazing, to the left was the city skyline, and to the the right was the mountain ranges. If you follow my Instagram I posted the sunrise everyday on my Instastory, it was lit!
Food in Denver was great, we went to this burger place in Downtown. I don’t remember what it was called because we ate on the go. Here’s a list of must try places, there’s Esters Neighborhood Pub, Aviano Coffee in Cherry Creek, Shanahan’s, and Los Chingones. We were headed to Colorado Springs so lunch was very rushed. I didn’t get great photos at Colorado Srings, because the sun decided to set at 5, but it was very festive, and bright! Later that night we ended up ordering room service, trying to redeem ourselves from our lunch choices! I had a salad with Salmon and my sister had a salad with chicken, which were both really tasty.
The following day we set out for the Rocky Mountains! The views were indescribable, in my 19 years of life I have never seen anything like this! If you’ve never been to Colorado, the Rocky Mountains needs to be at the top of your to do list!
On our way to the Mountains we stopped in Boulder! Now Boulder is a city I can see myself spending the rest of my life in, it is so peaceful, and it feels like home. We were originally going to have breakfast at Alpine Modern Cafe but it was so packed in there! We went down the street to this other cafe which was super cute where we had bagels with avocado, burritos, and of course coffee!
After breakfast we hit the road it’s about an hour from Boulder to the Rockies. Words cannot describe the view! When we got to the park, a big portion of it was closed off for safety precautions it was snowing and there was ice on the road at the higher altitudes of the mountain so we didn’t get to see everything the park has to offer.
Here are a few outfit photos, the top photo is what it started out like and the the next photos are what it changed to real quick!
It was about 3 degrees in the park and there were high winds. Now it might not look like it in the photos, but you only end up going outside for like 2 mins and you’re back in the car.
It might have been freezing cold, but I had the time of my life in Colorado!
