Climbing up Copper Mountain – BEAUTIFUL fields of wildflowers!
My friend Megan and I drove from Texas to Colorado. We took the route through New Mexico on the way there, and the route through Kansas on the way home.
Cities we visited:
– Capulin, NM (We hiked into the volcano!!)
– Frisco, CO
– Pueblo, CO
– Copper, CO
– Buena Vista, CO (We whitewater rafted through Brown’s Canyon and rode horses!)
– Vail, CO
– Cakwer City, KS
– Oklahoma City, OK
Rather than talk about it, I’ll let the pictures speak the story!
Cameras used: GoPro Hero2, iPhone 5, iPhone 4 w/ Olloclip

Breakfast with a mountain.
Working my way through the field of boulders. Reminded me of this quote:
“Jumping from boulder to boulder and never falling, with a heavy pack, is easier than it sounds; you just can’t fall when you get into the rhythm of the dance.” – Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums
This is the mountain I climbed. It looks smaller from the highway..

I was able to attend Wanderlust because I received two free Sage passes from So Delicious, simply for replying to a Tweet of theirs. They also gave me these coupons (I used them FAST). Thanks again, guys!
I also got some free camp coffee for my trip from Nature Coffee Kettle! Their concept and quality is fantastic and I LOVE COFFEE so I can take all I can get!
Stay tuned for more adventures! I’ll be at Wanderlust Austin, the All-Girls Slackline Festival in Oregon, & whatever else I can!
