We started our drive to Aspen
I loved going through the tunnels
When we made it to Glenwood Springs, it reminded me of my small home town.....
Then I really got excited when I saw that they were setting up for a parade!!I kept telling Greg, "Do you know what they are doing?" "They are going to have a parade and do you know how I know?" "Look at all of those lawn chairs!"
Sometimes it's the little things people! They were indeed having a parade that morning for their Strawberry Festival!
Before we made it to Aspen this mountain could be seen from every turn in the road!
After making it just in time for our bus, we made it to the Maroon Bells!!
Seriously one of the best highlights of the trip!!
I could just stare at this all day long!
The water was so clear and we saw so many fish!
On the way back to visitor center, we got to see a moose and her calf! AMAZING!!
After our very exciting adventure we made our way into town!
It's really cool how Aspen's mountain is right there! You can see the gondola in this pic.
Saturday just happened to be the best day to go, because the market was open!
This entire town was so much fun and beautiful!!
For lunch we went to Creperie Du Village
Such a super cute alpine restaurant!!
I wish I could go back this week!
I hope to wrap up the rest of the trip this week!
Gorgeous photos! I never wanted to go to CO before because I don't ski but now you have me considering it...ReplyDelete
Y'all should totally go and visit!! I never thought I would like it either, but it is seriously beautiful!! Everyone was outside riding bikes, fishing, hiking, running, having picnics....you name it! I did not want to come home, lol!!Delete
