Well with things getting back to normal, Ive finally found time to edit and post some of these photos from the last weekend of my trip to colorful Colorado.
We started out our weekend with a drive down to Colorado Springs where we met up and stayed with Ian, Isaac's brother. The next day we headed up to Monarch Mountain Ski resort to fall...err...snowboard. It was a blast and it was truly beautiful on top of the mountain. I with I could have brought a camera...
After a fun (an painful) snowboarding adventure, Isaac and I headed south once again to Trinidad, Isaac's hometown to see the sights and visit with his parents for a couple days. While we were there, we took a little drive along highway 12 to see the sights...
On our drive through highway 12, we stopped at a frozen lake to take a little walk on the ice. It was a little disheartening to hear the ice thunder and crack through the valley, but it sure was beautiful.
Bishop's Castle. A real life 20th century castle built entirely by hand by one man. This place really was amazing. A little scary, but amazing none the less. Everything you see was built by hand. No foolin'.
Being so far south, and so close to the border, we decided to take a drive into New Mexico. It was a short lived stay and before we knew it we were back in good old Colorado.
And with that scenic trip (and a few more drinks), my stay in Colorado was over. It flew by, but it won't be forgotten. I learned a lot, found out new things about myself, relaxed, had a few drinks, met some great people, and had a lot of fun. Hopefully I'll be seeing more of the mountains soon!
Thanks for the fun times man....it was a blast.
