Some end up there because of hard times, some choose to park it there during the tolerable winter months, others prefer the outskirts of society. Veterans, snowbirds, runaways, artists, a kaleidoscope of colorful characters occupy the barren desert acreage that many would describe as post apocalyptic.
Whether you stop to smell the flowers or stop to watch the sun-set. Just make sure you stop (everyday) to take it all in. Wherever you are.
Over the summer two of my cousins journeyed from Delaware to visit my husband and I on the western slope of colorful Colorado. We adventured through the mountains on old mining roads, paddled boarded on Emerald Lake, admired unique creations at the arts fair, attempted to fly fire lanterns and went to the local skatepark. We did a lot more but that was already a mouthful, ha! My cousin Gabe (pictured in yellow) loves to spend time surfing concrete and my husband while he hadn’t skated in years also enjoys the rowdy sport or any board sport for that matter….
The trees of colorful Colorado during the peak of autumn. Grab a warm drink and settle in for a seasonal special.
