A few weeks ago, I scored an incredible deal on a plane ticket to Denver, Colorado. The price was so unreal, I briefly considered that it might be a bug with Google flights. It was no joke though, it really was non stop, direct flights for only $40 round trip! It was perhaps the single greatest steal I have ever come across. I have wanted to take a trip out west for a while now, as it had been since I was 13 or 14 that I visited anywhere west of Houston. The Smokies are my go to nature spot lately, but the opportunity to see some real mountains for so damn cheap was too exciting to turn down! Visiting Colorado has genuinely made me start to ask if I want to live somewhere other Nashville or Tennessee. Almost entirely because it is the mountains are unbelievably gorgeous. These are some of my favorite shots from the trip. I took a train up to Glenwood Springs from Denver, and riding through the snow-capped Rocky Mountains is a memory I will now cherish forever.
