magic moment: my dear friend took me to this unreal Caribbean crystal blue lake nestled in Colorado mountains. i lived in this county for 4 years and have never seen anything like it. till now. we hiked up through the browns, greens, tans and yellows of high alpine. the peaks and the views were enthralling us. then we made it up here and the sight of the lake appeared. the striking blues prevented us from looking away and pulled our legs to its edge. the Colorado sun was dipping in and out of clouds. warm and summery when the sun was out, cold and chilly when it was hidden. we both wanted to jump in because it was so alluring and because life is too short. i dipped my hand in to test the temperature and it was like a cooler of ice. we sat for a few minutes, staring up into the sky and waiting for the sun to make an appearance long enough to dip while it was warm. suddenly, the clouds cleared and there was a small patch of blue hugging the circle in the sky. โ€˜f it, now is the timeโ€™ we shot up and Balazs quickly stripped down and jumped in first so i could capture la moment. he dove in, splashing around for a few minutes, exhilarated. high off cold water and edgy decisions. he made his way out and i stripped down and waded in clumsily, stepping and slipping on slick rocks. as soon as i dove in and my head was jolted by cold blue, i made my way back out. also exhilarated, also awake and very shocked alive. the sun disappeared as quickly as it appeared so we were left shivering but smiling ear to ear. we spent the rest of the hike down trying to warm up but so enthralled by those deep and light blues that covered our bodies and hair and filled our minds with magic. ๐Ÿ–ค

I took mom on an impromptu road trip to Mesa Verde, not giving her a clear view of where to next! The plan was to head to Arches but we only had one night so ended up at Telluride watching the Aspen change colors on the mountains. I am grateful for this moment with my mom and a chance to create one of a kind memories. Yโ€™all who have followed my stories are gonna re see the highlights of my road trip with Linda โค๏ธ #mesaverde #colorado #roadtrip #southwest #usa #aspen #colorfulcolorado #summer #exploreusa

The first day of fall is here & the gold rush is coming soon to Colorado! Soon loads of โ€œleaf peepersโ€ come to Colorado to see the leaves. The fall colors are already coming & are supposed to be great this year & I canโ€™t wait to see them!

I am so excited for fall colors but I will definitely miss the wildflowers covering the mountainsides in the summer. I have a couple of winter elopements coming up but nothing compared to how busy the summer is & Iโ€™m definitely looking forward to a little break from all the action! What are your favorite fall activities?

Altitude sickness was definitely worth the hike to this beautiful alpine blue lake in Silverton, Colorado. Mind blown by the stunning crisp gatorade blue color! ๐Ÿคฏโ„๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿฅพ

Happy first day of Autumn! This has always been my favorite season. We didn't see much color change as yet on our recent trip to the mountains-- it has been unusually warm this year. I did see this gorgeous scene at 9,000 feet near the old mining camp of Vicksburg, Colorado. I can't wait to enjoy more of Autumn's gold!

@MattPaynePhoto here for this week's Instagram takeover - I'm showcasing some of my favorite Colorado autumn scenes for you.โ  โ  You can find some amazing things when you wander through the forests here in Colorado, like this set of five aspen all growing up out of the ground together. Aspen trees are so magical, so amazing. I love how these look like they are watching you...โ  ------------โ  โ  #mothernature #naturelovers #nature #instanature #naturephotography #travel #hiking #lifestyle #explore #adventure #choosemountains #coloradoactivities #coloradotography #livewild #yourco #colorado #viewcolorado #naturalcolorado #colorfulcolorado #coloradolife #coloradolove #westbysouthwest #puresw #rockymountains #coloradolive #coloradogram

๐Ÿ‚Happy Autumn Equinox ๐Ÿ‚!! The weather is finally cooperating here in KC and I am one happy gal! The cooler breezes have me reminiscing on my recent week in Colorado with my parents. Ahhh...I am missing those mountains and pine trees something fierce. While we were there my mom crocheted me up this cute water bottle holder for our daily hikes. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— Now that itโ€™s officially Fall...what are you looking forward to the most? I canโ€™t wait to carve pumpkins and start making/eating all the soups. ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ . . . #yarnvibes #crochet #crocheter #moderncrochet #crochetgirlgang #instacrochet #ourmakerlife #crochetaddict #yarninspiration #crochetlover #crochetpattern #yarnaddict #yarnlover #yarnlove #handmadelife #nomadstitches #makersmovement #handmadeparade #crochetofinstagram #livecreatively #happyfall #colorfulcolorado #buenavista #crochetonthego #womenwhohike #getoutside #naturetherapy

Crested Butte. If you haven't been here, go soon. If you have been here, come back. While the majority of the aspen trees that flourish in this area are still green, there are hidden gems if you know where to look. This quintessential Colorado mountain town makes my soul feel more full every, single, time I visit. . . . . #hike #mountains #colorado #colorfulcolorado #hiking #optoutside #camp #photography #adventure #travel #CO #beautiful #nature #fallyall #fall #crestedbutte #aspen #neature #mountains #happy #wintheday
