I know I said I would get this up yesterday, I didn’t. I know, I’m fired. But, its better late than never, and now that I’m finally a little bit more caught up on my sleep, hydration and caffeine intake, I’m feeling much more like a real person who has the energy and mental capacity to do things that are productive.
I left for Denver early on Friday morning, 9/18. When I say early, I mean my flight was at 6 A.M., which called for a 3:15 A.M. wakeup call. Early mornings are not my forte, but I’ll do it for traveling. If you ever want to see people at their worst, I suggest going through airport security at 4:45 A.M. on a Friday.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week flew by and your weekend creeps by like a drunk turtle.
Today is a good day. Not only is it Friday, but also because I finally got to book my trip to Colorado. I’m contemplating a move out there in the next couple of months (still very tentative), and decided I should probably visit first before I make any decisions. I’ll be flying into Denver on Friday 9/18 and heading back eaaaaarly morning Tuesday 9/22. I’m trying to set up an interview with a company I’m really excited about, so cross your fingers for me!

This month has pretty a great month for traveling. I spent 8 days in beautiful Wyoming, and now I’m going down to the less than beautiful Carson, CA for 6 days to watch the Reebok CrossFit Games. I know that everyone is supposed to swoon over southern California’s supposed beauty, but…no. Sorry. Too much traffic, tons of smog and too many people. But they do have beaches that are actually warm, so…I guess I can kind of see the appeal.
Coming home after being on vacation is never easy. I feel like it’s exceptionally more difficult when said vacation helps you realize that where you consider “home” is not exactly where you want to be anymore, and said vacation spot is more aligned with where you want to call “home”. This was definitely the case with me, as I think the mountains are my happy place. More on that later (maybe, possibly) if I can figure out my next life steps!
As I mentioned in my last post, the majority of my trip was spent driving around solo and taking photos. I absolutely love doing this, as I think one of the best ways to discover new places is to set out without an agenda or expectations. It also allowed me to get a lay of the land a bit, and figure out the best spots for epic photos. Although honestly, pretty much anywhere out there made for amazing photo opportunities.
What a week it’s been so far! Apologies for the hiatus (again, I’m terrible, I know), but I’ve been on vacation in Jackson, WY since Sunday the 5th. It’s been hard to tear myself away from the incredible scenery (tons of photos below) and sit down in front of my computer to write something. However, it’s currently pouring rain – which is actually a nice reprieve from the horrific drought we’re enduring in California. I figured a rainy Friday wasn’t a terrible time to sit down and get something written.
When I told people I was going on vacation to Wyoming, many of them just gave me a puzzled look. Why on earth would you go to Wyoming?
Um, because this, for starters:
In other words…it is insanely, ridiculously beautiful, and if you’re an active or outdoorsy person, this is basically a wet dream (sorry) come true.
