There’s a lot to love about Colorado. Some things are obvious – the mountains, the hiking, the outdoor sports – but the sky is something I notice almost every day here. The clouds seem to always be fluffy, the sky always blue, and the sunsets always bright.

I got to enjoy this fluffy cloud, blue sky this weekend at Rocky Mountain National Park, and brought my camera. We crossed rivers, climbed up steep river banks, enjoyed reading by the rushing water.

This view of Long’s Peak stopped me almost every 10 steps on the way back down the mountain.

It was a great angle to zoom all the way into the diamond. Looking forward to hiking my first 14er sometime soon!
