Delicious coffee drinks are wonderful any time of day! Carnelian Coffee loves to invent new drinks for you to enjoy. Stop by and try their new Golden Tea Latte, a turmeric spiced tea with a hint of cinnamon and blend of spices. We love their Orange Cinnamon Iced Latte on a warm day and French Press in the morning! @carneliancoffeeco #OldColoradoCity

Colorado has some of the bluest waters I’ve ever seen. This is one of the many blue lakes that absolutely blew my mind 💦🤯

I was so nervous about Oliver’s first plane ride. Early morning travel seemed to workout great though. He slept on the way to Denver and tolerated the air pressure just fine ! He’s such a little trooper. Thank you @southwestair for being so accommodating to family’s. It makes traveling with baby so much easier!👶🏻

I love the quiet & still mornings of peace before the commotion. (This was taken right before the sheep escaped the fencing). Farm life is basically like putting out whatever fire is currently the hottest!

"Do you have a lighter?" I asked hopefully to the three guys in CU Boulder shirts walking by. They were our last chance to be able to eat that night- I had asked everyone else and no one had one. Why hadn't I listened to my husband and brought a lighter? "Yes! The guy back there told us you needed one" one of them replied. "Are you trying to make food?" "Yep, but my brand new jetboil wont light!" We all walked up the small hill to where our tents were set up. "Oh no way! You have @backpackerspantry ?! That's my parent's company" We bonded over what a small world it was, they lit our stove, and were on their way. Of all the people I could've asked for a lighter, of all the food we could have carried with us. What are the chances? They were even nice enough to give us a white claw. I've never been so excited for a dehydrated meal. And I swear- it was probably the best mac n cheese I've ever had.

I always say sunrises are my favorite. You really have to put in some work to see a good sunrise-- whether it means ripping yourself out of a peaceful sleep, or seriously burning the midnight oil. Some of the most memorable days of my life started with seeing the sunrise. And all of that just goes to say that this scene really had an impact on me, because it is actually one of those rare sunsets that just absolutely leaves me in total awe at the majesty of nature. The wind was ripping these clouds across Crestone Needle in a wave as the fading light ignited the sky in oranges and golds! And even though many a sunset go by unnoticed as we rush about in our preoccupied ways, I can say that @hphebert and I really put in some work to see this one! The miles we hiked, plus freezing temperatures and biting winds we endured were all worth it for this brief 15 minute window. . . . . #choosemountains #14ers #colorado14ers #colorado #sunset_pics #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunset #coloradotography #coloradoinstagram #crestones #mountains #mountainsbros #hiking #backpacking #adventurenthusiasts #agameoftones #artofvisuals #canonusa #landscapephotography #earthpix #earthfocus #fantastic_earth #coloradogram #coloradoliving #visitcolorado #optoutside #earthoutdoors #natures_marvels #inmybackyard @colorado14ers @choosemountains @adventurenthusiasts @mountainsbros @visitcolorado @colorado14ersinitiative

Y’all. I’ve been to Colorado more than a dozen times and I had no idea the Great Sand Dunes National Park even existed until we started planning this trip...and it’s now one of my favorite places we’ve EVER visited!!! The views are stunning and there are so many fun things to do. They’re the tallest dunes in North America with gorgeous mountain ranges all around them. I’ve truly never seen anything like it in my whole life! + + We stayed for two days & the 1st day we sand sledded and sand boarded and the 2nd day we hiked to the top of the summit dune (750 ft peak from bottom) Both days were amazing!+ + From 5yrs old to 35yrs old, we all had a total blast! We played on the dunes for almost 3.5hrs and had we not been exhausted we would’ve kept going. It was seriously so much fun! + + Travel Tips :: +Add @greatsanddunesnationalpark to your list of places you have to visit, if it’s not already there! + +The temps were perfect this time of year - lows in the 40s and highs in the 70s. The signs say to wear hiking boots but we all opted for our @chacofootwear In the summer the sand temps get up to 140degrees so you should def wear boots then ☀️but we loved climbing barefoot or in Chaco sandals. + + Rent your boards and sleds at the Oasis just about a mile outside the park for about $20/ea for the day.+ + The kids completed the Jr Ranger program & learned SO much. We used their curriculum for our science lessons while we were in the park #roadschooling The Park has have different levels of activities for each age group. + + Have y’all ever been to @greatsanddunesnationalpark If so, what was your favorite thing about it!?!

Pikes Peak ... is also a MUST to visit when you are in Colorado Springs . From the gate to the last parking lot at the top is 16 miles, and it’s 8,000ft elevation gain !! So you can imagine how “crooked” or crinkly the driveway to the top is 😳😳 !! We have to park our car either on mile 13 or mile 16, then take a “free” shuttle from there ( fee is paid at the entrance gate ) on a van, provides by the park. Pic 3 : we saw a Marmot sunbathing on top of a rock 😃😁😍👍 . . . . . . . . . @pikespeakhillclimb @colorado @visitcolorado @visitcos #regionalpark #coloradosprings #visitcolorado #visitcoloradosprings #visitcoloradospringscolorado #travelincolorado #explorecolorado #explorecoloradosprings #roadtrip #roadtripamerica #roadtripusa #rvlifestyle #rving #rvingamerica #rvingusa #rvingacrossamerica #rvingacrossamericawithdogs #rvingacrossthestates #fulltimerv #fulltimervfamily #fulltimervfamilylife #fulltimervlivingwithdogs #fulltimerving #fulltimervliving #fulltimervers

One of our sponsors and auction donors for this year’s Fiesta Party for The Family Center/La Familia, was Chippers Lanes in Fort Collins. Chippers has long been a staple in the Northern Colorado entertainment scene - offering families options for bowling, laser tag, arcade, and beach volleyball fun! We were thrilled when they signed on to help our friends over at The Family Center/La Familia. If you are looking for some family fun entertainment - we suggest spending some time at either Fort Collins location! https://www.chipperslanes.com/locations/fort-collins-horsetooth/ #Vendoroftheweek #MyBigDay #Colorado #EventPlanning #FeaturedVendor #NorthernColorado #eventcoordinator #VisitColorado #ColorfulColorado #LoveLivinginColorado #exploreColorado #exploremore #travelmore #wanderlust #thefamilycenter #lafamilia #fiestasponsor #chipperslanes #familyentertainment #thefamilycenter #lafamilia

There are many ups and downs of high altitude hiking (literally and figuratively) but one of my favorite moments is after a lengthy and steep approach finally making it to the ridge. It marks another stage of the climb. Your vision, no longer obstructed by trees and topography is met with your first glimpse of the alpine world around you. The rest of the hike is full of unparalleled views of endless peaks and clouds. I enjoy a good ridge walk as much as I do sitting on the summit. 🥾 🏔 . . . . . #castlepeak #14ers #14er #rockymountains #mountainstones #elkrange #coloradotography #coloradoviews #rei1440project #colorado_creative #choosemountains #coloradogram #wildernessculture #theoutbound #coloradoinstagram #outtherecolorado #neverstopexploring #naturelovers #thecreative #throughthepines #getoutside #wildandco #getoutstayout #exploremore #whyihike #visitcolorado #optoutside #fujifeed

The view from an abandoned mining home overlooking Silver Lake. The hike is roughly a seven mile out and back in the San Juan Mountains. I’m a sucker for mountains, lakes, and ghost towns. This had all three.

Pike National Forest Horseback Riding Trails Under a permit from the U.S. Forest Service, Lost Valley has access to 26,000 acres of the most picturesque mountains and trails found anywhere in Colorado. Many of the Colorado horseback riding trails we frequent were originally created by early settlers, trappers, miners and the wild creatures found in the forests. Trails are selected daily and based upon the skills of the riding group and the terrain they want to see as no two trails are exactly alike.

#redrocks is as glorious as described by all 😍 “.. Part of the geological Fountain Formation deposited approximately 280 million years ago, a famous opera singer came to perform and declared it “acoustically perfect,” and it’s been revered by musicians (as a music venue) ever since.” ⛰ #redrocksamphitheater #shelbyxdenver #shelbyxusa #visitdenver

What are the Fjällräven Classics all about? The concept is simple: to encourage and enable more people to get out and enjoy trekking. We’ve heard some amazing stories come out of the USA Classic, but @edgarva11es does an excellent job summarizing the event and the emotions it can evoke, especially for first timers: "It all started with a 'Yes' to an opportunity for an adventure. Took a solo trip to Colorado not knowing what to expect for my first 3 day backpacking trip. I knew it would be hard & intense [...] but also rewarding. The task was a little intimidating but all the people I met made it easier to smile/laugh/enjoy the journey. All of us where there for one reason, to enjoy Mother Nature in all her beauty. Boy did Mother Nature show us all her colors in those mountains. From mile zero to mile 30 there wasn't one person that didn't connect/help/encourage one another and make it feel like a big @fjallraven_na family. If you didn't know it from the outside it would have seemed like we all knew each other for years. Thanks @fjallraven_na @leavenotracecenter for an amazing 4th year of the US Classic." Interested in doing a #FjallravenClassic ?? The next locations are Korea, Hong Kong, and Germany!

| Worship On The Rocks | As the saying goes, there’s a first time for everything. Personally, this was my first time at @redrocksco. For my friend, @aaronstrumpel , it was his first time to play at #redrocksamphitheater ! I’m fan-girling and having a proud Cindy moment for Aaron for numerous reasons. I loved the fact that I was there to witness this occasion in his music career. Aaron, you did great! I’m glad we were able to connect. It was wonderful sitting with your family and friends. Back story, I purchased my tickets to #worshipontherocks in July before #aaronstrumpel was put on the schedule to play. Also, I saw a rainbow last night. 🤗🌈
