First 2020 Trip! - Colorado: A Quick Get-Away

February 03, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

   One of my New Year's resolutions for 2020 was to travel more. For the last couple of years, I've been wanting to explore not just my immediate surroundings but the world. I decided that 2020 would be the year and honestly, this trip could not have come at a better time. Last month I lost someone really special and I needed to get away for a bit and get myself in order. This trip helped start me up in the right step. 

See my trip below! 

Colorado January 24-26, 2020

Purple DreamTaken in Colorado on the many miles of almost deserted highway.

   I was amazed at the many miles of almost deserted highway (compared to Chicago) Colorado has to offer. The earth felt fresh and the mountain views were breathtaking. I've never been in a place so vast yet so homey. It reminded me of home. When I look at this photo, I get a warm feeling inside my heart. When editing, I wanted to give it a dreamy vibe. I wanted to physically represent how I saw it. I think this was a job well done!


Pre-Historic...A brief photographic description on the older of things. Mountains and terrain.

Those Pre-Historic Stones!!! I just loved them! I believe this was part of my photoshoot of Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I was really happy there. I had some time for myself and I climbed part of the mountain! I have many more photos but I wanted to pick the best ones to show.  Every time I see this photo, it reminds me of the Flintstones. Do you ever wonder how they lived when the animators were not there? When we weren't looking? You know like Toy Story when they became alive when people weren't watching. My brain thinks about these sorts of things...

   These sorts of views were normal at Garden of the Gods. I was in awe of all the sites. I'm reminded of The Lion King for some reason. Could it be because of that scene when Simba was just born and he's shown to the Kingdom? I digress...

This is how it felt. Those feelings you are getting? Imagine them in 3D... Exactly. 


On the Way with Blue Skies Colorado Springs, Colorado 2020.

Just to show you how it looks. Ain't it great? I really fell in love with Colorado. So much that the idea of moving has crossed my mind a couple of times. Ideally, I would like to do this. It will take some planning but I'd love to have a new adventure and new places to explore. 

Maybe van living???


Old Timey: See the Vastness Taken in Colorado Springs, 2020.

I made this because of the old-timey vibes this photograph was giving me. I think it looks so cool! 


Volcanoooooo!!! AKA Pikes Peak!Not a photograph of a real volcano but it certainly seems like it. Colorado Springs 2020.

This is the best photo EVER!!! I think It looks like a Volcano! It is not (or is it) but it's still awesome.   

Pikes Peak is beautiful. I honestly never seen anything like it. Only in photos. I urge everyone to see this amazing natural wonder. It will take your breath away. 


I have many other photos to show. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to edit them all. I'm thinking I might upload a separate entry with all the extra un-edited photos so they have a space in this blog as well. I might also cut down on the images so I can better manage them and be able to take my time with them. 

What do you think? Let me know below!
