colorado national monument11:33:00 AM
Sometimes I forget that I live in Colorado. Believe it or not, but much of CO is flat as a pancake, and you need to put in some miles to see anything spectacular. One of my favorite weekend activities is to explore my own state, so with an extra-long weekend for Labor Day, Conrad and I decided to drive to Colorado National Monument for some canyons and camping.
After a seven+ hour car ride (#labordaytrafficfail), we finally arrived at dusk. We set up camp quickly and watched the stars until it was time for bed. The next day, we went exploring.
Once we'd made it, we saw that the 'waterfall' consisted of about six small trickles of water. Interestingly, it can fill almost immediately thanks to torrential downpours and then dry up just as quickly.
I take card games very seriously...
Once back, we set about making dinner. The last thing I captured before the sun went down was dessert! Sorry for the blur, but it was just too good not to share :)
Any recommendations for where we should head to next? All suggestions welcome!
