The Beautiful Western Part of Colorado

I've been wanting to post photos from our Denver trip a couple of weeks ago but there's just so much going on that I can't keep up with my personal blog updates. But since today is Friday, which means no work tomorrow, then I can blog my heart out without having to worry about staying up late.

If I remember that trip well, Colorado is a state like no other that I've seen just yet. I've been to Illinois and Missouri, I've lived in Arkansas, we've driven through Oklahoma and Kansas and I must say the western part of Colorado is a must-see. I was simply amazed by the beautiful rocky mountains there. While we were on our way to Denver, we saw the faint silhouette of the huge mountains up ahead and it really tripled my excitement. It was officially a work-related trip for hubby but that didn't stop us from spending a couple of days checking out what Colorado has to offer. I'll have to stop rambling here and just allow you to be captivated with the pictures that I'm going to share in this post.

That part of Colorado is definitely a lot prettier than the eastern part of Colorado where I live. I'm glad you liked it. :)
