For the past 3 years I have lived in Colorado. I spend my weekends and free days exploring the open land from the valleys to the mountain tops. Being outside has given me much needed time to reflect and escape the day-to-day routines which are so easy to get stuck in. By allowing myself these opportunities I have given myself plenty of peace and energy to keep moving forward.

I have taken many photos of my adventures and I feel like sharing a few of them with you. I hope you enjoy them and that they will encourage you to come visit this great state. And If you don’t make it out to Colorado I encourage you to explore the great outdoors around you.
