Escape the City in a Rocky Mountain Way


I just was able to go back and visit my home state for a week. 

As I recently got a new job (where I'll be living and working in Peru!), I needed to return to beautiful Colorado to see family and organize my things. I hiked in the foothills near Ken Caryl and went to Steamboat Springs for the weekend with my mother, aunt, and several friends. Here are some photos of my parent's backyard and my mountain trips ;D

Oh, and you should listen to this song as you look at my photos, for proper atmosphere.

Single red leaf - fall hasn't quite finished in Denver

 I hiked the Valley View trail near the Steamboat ski area at 7am and got some nice pictures facing South and West of Steamboat Springs
