Sorry i’ve been missing, I took a vacation! For my birthday this year, I asked Cameron if we could finally go with his cousin Kyle & wife Elise, out west on their annual camping trip through Colorado & Utah. They’ve been trying to get us to go for years, and the timing never worked out. From now on we will make the time to go on this trip! It was by far the most fun, adventurous, laugh-filled, breath-taking trip i’ve ever been on.
Aaaaand the longest car ride i’ve ever taken. Starting from Maryland and resting in Ohio for a night where my extended family lives was our first part of the trip.
Once we made it to Indiana (where Kyle & Elise are from) we slept & hit the road on the bright! 5:00am riding across the most boring states in all the land… Illinois–> iowa –> Nebraska –> where we finally stopped for the night and camped. Had to document the very first tent i’ve ever set up!
The next day we finally crossed into Colorado & once we made it to Estes Park we took off on our first hike in the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park. I can only say good things about this hike. It was long (10.5 miles!) and the terrain changed over and over again. It honestly never got boring and the weather was perfect. I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves!
After a night of camping in Rocky Mtn Nat’l Park, we set out toward Utah, but first taking the scenic route up the mountains where it got pretty cold, but made our pictures pretty cool.
more to come!
