Rocky Mountains to Home


This Colorado trip was amazing. Keltin and I saw some beautiful sights and made some wonderful memories.

Note: On the posts below with a * are places where I have talked about various restaurants. If a post has a + we either specially stayed there and I spoke about it or you can camp there. All the cities do have hotels or vacation rentals but we did not stay in a specific one.


  • Salida* – Go up Spiral Dive, it’s worth the view.
  • Buena Vista*– Lots if good food and local beer.
  • Victor – A quiet and active mining town.
  • Aspen*+ – Nice but pricy.
