Colorado National Monument

While on our trip over the weekend, Jordan took me up the Colorado National Monument. It was so gorgeous and it got me really excited for day hikes together. I'm not usually big into nature photography, but that was not the case for this beautiful place. It is so calming to stand in such a pretty place. To be separated from the rest of the world for a short time, something I wish I could do more often.

  1. When I was at BYU-I and was feeling depressed and anxious, I would always ride my bike to a field or drive to the dry farms and just look at all the billions of stars. Being surrounded by something so vast and beautiful and grand and quiet always made things feel more manageable to me.

    These red rocks are gorgeous! I hope you're able to visit them often.

  2. My favorite escapes are always to places like this - right in the heart of nature, away from everything busy and organized and structured. I always leave feeling pretty hopeful.

    Love photos!

  4. Oh my goodness these are stunning!! Being a Florida girl who NEVER gets to travel, I can't even imagine being near a place like this... I'm only used to flat land and lots of ocean. So gorgeous :)
