Colorado// Summer 2016

Hi friends! I lied, I am going to make one post about Colorado instead of several small ones. OK, so the next day we visited Breckenridge, which was a little touristy but totally cute! I love quaint little towns, and Breckenridge fit right into that category. My family and I walked around venturing inside all of the unique little shops. Later that night, we went to Boondocks  in Denver and played Mini Golf!

The next morning, we woke up early and headed into Boulder to tour Colorado University. Colorado University was a beautiful campus, they had these little gardens everywhere that were just stunning! There was this one garden, called the Shakespeare Garden, and all of his plays had their own little garden space with the plants mentioned in his plays in the gardens. I was so neat! After touring, we walked around downtown Boulder and ate at Pasta Jays, let me just say, it was some mean pasta! Shortly after, we left to go to our rented condo in Winter Park.

Monday & Tuesday kinda consisted of similar things, we mostly stayed in Winter Park and my extended family met us there. Monday we hiked up Winter Park’s main ski mountain, so to speak. Tuesday, we did all the fun outdoor activities Winter park offers in the summer, i.e. alpine slides, bungee trampolines, mini golf, rock climbing and much more, these activites were lots of fun and I recommend them to anyone who goes to Winter Park in the summer. Finally, on Wednesday, we went down to Grand Lake, Colorado. There we hiked to Adam’s Falls which was a natural waterfall and stream due to snow melt, we hung around in the stream for a while dipping our feet into the freezing water. We the went to Grand Lake’s beach front and went kayaking and paddle boarding one the lake, it was so much fun!

All this to say that this short vacay was worth it! It was so nice to be with family and get to relax, Colorado, you are one for the books.
