A quick road trip to Colorado with my drone proved to give great results on capturing video unlike I’ve been able to back home. Stunning treetops and river runs give a new experience to Colorado that I haven’t enjoyed until now. Some more techniques to learn but this was a good first effort.
Nathan and I drove to Colorado to meet some friends and ski just west of Denver, CO. His first time to ski, I was truly impressed. Never had any trouble getting off the ski lift. Took a bit of a wipeout on a blue run, but he did a blue run on his first day ever to ski.
I was walking to school. The high school was about five to seven miles from my home but it was a beautiful spring Colorado morning and it felt like the only logical choice to do with my time. My car was broken down, somewhere unknown in Albuquerque, New Mexico with little hope to ever get it back. My mom was pissed off that I had lied to her about driving to Texas to see my ex (first) girlfriend who I was still trying to win back and who never failed to break my heart every time I made an effort. This time, it was her prom. She asked me to come to hers and despite my car breaking down in the middle of the New Mexico desert, I scraped my remaining money together to get a one-way bus ticket to still make the event. Right after the prom, the inevitable played it’s part and I was once again left heart broken, this time stuck in Plainview, Texas.
We rented an ATV and drove through the mountains, exploring the trails that wind up the mountain forests. Had a great time but Nate was disappointed he wasn’t old enough for his own, so I let him take over and drive a bit.
Last min road trip to Colorado with Tracy. We climbed the mountain in snow shoes!
Another year of traveling to Crested Butte, Colorado for Independence Day as has become our (mostly) annual tradition. I love Crested Butte and Gunnison County. I love Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. It replenishes my soul every time I come here. It’s one of the only family traditions we have. My grandparents used to bring my father here, my father used to bring me here, and I bring Nathan here as often as I can.
Stay awesome, Colorado Rockies.
Another road trip to the rocky mountains again for annual pilgrimage to Crested Butte, CO.
