The Final Day! I had left this open for whatever I wanted to do. Matt had flown home, so I was left to my own devices. I had been considering going back and doing another hike in the Rocky Mountain National Park, but decided I was hiked out. Spending the day exploring...

 The day began with a goodbye brunch at the bride's parent's house, which sported gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding mountain vistas. Of course, sketching ensued.

Matt and I decided to go hiking after, and I learned that when we both say "I'm tired and want to...

Wedding festivities time! Did I mention my real motive for a Colorado vacation was that I had two friends getting hitched in Boulder? I was a bridesmaid so had a couple of days of wedding activities baked into my sketchcation. On Day 8 of my vacation, it was Day 1 of w...

It was time for my second National Park! I had strategically gotten an airbnb near Estes Park, which contains an entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and has a lot of great hikes. When I drove over, I got a great view of Estes Park in the valley and the mountains i...

On my schedule, Day 6 was a big question mark. Other than the five-ish hour drive to get myself from the Sand Dunes to just north of Boulder, I had left the day open. I could do more sand dunes, some nearby falls, or hit some other places as I drove north. I decided to...

Day 5: All Sand Dunes. All the Time. 

Naturally, I had checked the weather several times the week prior. All 60's and 70's. How warm was it on my sole day at the sand dunes? I checked my phone when I woke up: 32. It was actually freezing. I was not the only one at the s...

Time to head south! On this leg of the journey, I was on my way to Great Sand Dune National Park, which I believe (parents can fact check me) is my first National Park! I decided to stop at Royal Gorge Bridge and Park along the way, which is the tallest suspension brid...

Colorado Springs: The Sequel! I decided to stop in neighboring Manitou Springs in the morning; it was super cute and had been too busy for me to stop there for lunch on the day prior. I did a quick sketch in the beautiful morning light before embarking on the day's adv...

I started Day 2 at the Garden of the Gods. Bright and early, 8 AM. Luckily it was just a few minute drive from my Airbnb! (Colorado Springs would prove the easiest to navigate, with the most to do!). 

The Garden of the Gods was an exercise in both painting red rocks (an...

Hello! I have recently returned from an eleven day trip to Colorado! The real reason for the trip? I was a bridesmaid in my friends' wedding. But, I figured if I was flying out there (for the first time!) I may as well take myself on a little tour. After asking friends...
