Colorado Camping Trip: A Weekend with my Sista

About a week ago, I got back from a trip to visit my little sister out in Colorado!
Homegirl is a baller shot caller of an 18 year old, who decided to move there for the summer to take part in an internship, climb some rocks, hike some trails, make some flower crowns, and hang out with our incredible family members (whom she is also living with). Um, hello, can I be her when I grow up?

Soooo, because she’s been missing from my life down here in Florida for way too long (since May), Jesús and I packed up and headed out there to see her for a long weekend. And it was. so. much. fun!

We visited Colorado Springs, Glenwood Springs, camped in Carbondale, hiked THE prettiest part of Aspen (hello Maroon Bells), and rounded out our last few hours of the weekend in Denver, eating at CALL.

I documented (mostly) all of this goodness along the way, and I’m pumped to be sharing it now!

If you’re familiar with these areas, would you pass along some more recommendations my way in the comments!? I absolutely can’t wait to visit again.

Sending hugs!
