It’s been two weeks since I returned home from my latest Colorado trip. And yes, I miss it greatly! (And I promise, this is my final re-cap of that trip.) This was my sixth time visiting the “Centennial State” and my third one this year! One of the things that I fell in love with immediately when I first landed in Colorado back in 2009 were the mountains. It was the first time that I had ever seen actual snow-capped mountains in my life, where are very different than what we have here in Maryland. Over the years, I’ve hiked several of those mountains in Colorado, including not one but TWO 14ers. If I had to choose a favorite hiking destination, it would be a tie between the trails at the Flat Irons (in Boulder) or Loveland Pass (in Summit County). There are several other trails and destinations that I also love, but these are two spots that I come back to over and over again. And, I was lucky enough to visit both during my most recent trip!
