Road Trip: Day 2

Colorado

IMG_0547[1]On day two of our road trip, we were headed toward wonderful Colorado. Our route sliced us through the corner of New Mexico, which I can’t complain from because the more states I get to experience during this trip, the better. :)

100_0168The drive was way more enjoyable, seeing that we were experiencing the northern terrain’s (north of Texas that is) mountainous land. The trip was longer than the first,  and it took about 10 hours total to arrive at our hotel in Snowmass, just about 20 minutes north of Aspen, but again, the trip was way more enjoyable because of the scenery.

IMG_0569[2]Our journey through the mountains was a little nerve racking because it was really cloudy, plus the sun was already setting. And we actually drove through a cloud at 15 mph for around 10 minutes on a mountain road at 12,000 feet elevation!

The whole drive up the mountain was really serene, peaceful, and of course beautiful. We had Grizzly Bear’s song, Colorado, playing right as we crossed the state border and the soundtrack to our mountain drive was Sigur Rós. An Icelandic band with relaxing ethereal melodies, it was perfect.

  1. Oh wow…I don’t think I’ve ever had to drive through a cloud! That would be scary. Driving through the mountains is always beautiful scenery! And the clean, crisp air is awesome. You got some great shots!

    • Thanks Kim! I thankfully did not have to drive through the cloud, I was already nervous about just being a passenger on that high mountain! It was more than beautiful, everything about the atmosphere there is wonderful!
