keystone {travel tuesday}

It took me a week, but I finally feel like I am back on track.  As much as I love to be with my family and travel to beautiful parts of this country, I find myself craving routine and my space toward the end.  Please tell me I am not the only and not just getting old. 

Anyway, about Colorado. It could not have been more perfect.  We stayed in Keystone which is about a 2 hour drive West of Denver.  My Dad bought us all 4 day ski passes for Christmas that included passes to Breckenridge, Vail, and A Basin but we all decided to stick to Keystone so we could get to know the mountain.  I am glad we did because we saw some pretty incredible views.  Although the thin air didn't help, the views from above were breath taking from every viewpoint. 

My morning coffee with that view.

My first ride in a gondola 

We were so lucky to have milder temps, blue skies, and sunshine the majority of the time we skied. 


Breckenridge.  Mountains every which way. 

Another view from our bedroom window.

Hot tub not far from where we stayed.  So nice to relax in after a day on the mountains. 

Like, I said, I had such a great time but I am so happy to be back home.  We both want to go back but perhaps next time during the Summer.  As much fun as I did have skiing, I am more of a go on a long hike kinda gal so I think I will enjoy Summer in Colorado even more. 

Have you ever been to Colorado?
Do you ski?
Do you have any exciting adventures ahead?

Linking up with Bonnie and Tiffany today!

until next time

  7. Your photos are absolutely stunning! I was super excited to read this post as my fiancé and I have just been in the Rockies in Colorado for the past two weeks! We didn't get to Keystone - we spent the majority of our time snowboarding at A Basin! We just loved Colorado! Its so beautiful. We definitely noticed the thinner air too! Everything is just that little bit harder and it doesn't take much to get you huffing and puffing!

  8. Amazing photos. I have never skied before and I really think I would suck at it. I am going to Sweden tomorrow and will have the opportunity to ski there, so may give it a go ;)
