I am sitting here reminiscing about spring break. I am pretty sure that this was the quickest spring break of my life. I made it a goal to do something active everyday of being in Colorado during the break (I went to Utah for a few days as well). I made it to St. Peters Dome, attempted Mount Rosa and visited the paint mines in Calhan Colorado with my friend Jessica. I would love to do a cool photo session here with someone who has a super long flowy dress. I am sure you could get some wicked photos here with the wind!
The paint mines are a well-kept secret in Colorado. You turn on a dirt road in the middle of a field, park, take a little walk to the other side of the hill and all of a sudden, BOOM, there it is. It is simply spectacular, the assortment of whites, reds, yellows and orange in such a small area is breathtaking. I learned that Native Americans used these clay deposits for paints and pottery. Later on, settlers would mine the clay to make bricks. Nature is cool.
On a sidenote, somehow I accidentally deleted almost half of the pictures on my blog. I had to go back and fix almost all of the posts last night. That was super annoying!
Know of any other hidden gems that I need to check out? Leave me a comment if you do! I’d love to check them out 🙂
