Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Into the wild

{Outfit: //Shirt: thrifted//Skirt: about 6 years old…//Shoes: Target//}

Well, hanging out at Copper Mountain Resort isn’t exactly “into the wild”, but I was surrounded by beauty. I set out on my adventure last Wednesday (yeah, I was traveling for the whole 4th of July). Why was I there? Well, I was sent to check out the Wanderlust Festival. How do I describe Wanderlust? Hmmmm, well if you love yoga, hiking, and just plain life… this is for you.

I have so much more to share about the people and experiences at Wanderlust… but, it’s going to take a bit of time to organize the millions of lovely words and photos I have.

So, for today I just want to share how beautiful Colorado is. I have never been to this state. Most of the Denver/Copper Mountain area does remind me of Southern Oregon. It’s gorgeous… and whoa: the elevation. By the time we had made it up to the festival, we were close to 10,000 feet. I’ve never been this high (only in a plane). And then, we took the lift up the mountain to enjoy the beautiful view… that took us up to 12,000 feet. The elevation took a couple days to get used to (can you say… out of breath while walking up one flight of stairs). BUT, I loved it up on the mountain. So gorgeous.

 I hope you all had a lovely holiday week… and, have a beautiful Wednesday!

P.S. I was joined by Terra, Suebob, and Kate for this trip. They were amazing ladies! Go say “Hi” if you have a moment.

    Looks like a lovely trip! The scenery totally reminds me of when I lived in the Canadian rockies. Remembrances of things past. Tear.

    I have never been to Colorado, but it looks lovely! A lot like the western part of my home state of Wyoming!

    My home state! I'm glad you enjoyed it, but it's a little drier than Oregon, no? (: Looking forward to the pics to come.

      Well, maybe. I don't live in So. Oregon, so I'm sure how much it rains. But, I think it's pretty similar.
