Travel Diary: Grand Lake, Colorado

After spending this year on the road I’ve got a big list of travel hacks. 

The most important: find that person whose wanderlust philosophy lines up with yours, you’ve got to have a travel soul mate! 

Secondly, travel like a minimalist.

For wanderers on lengthier trips you’ll be so glad you had less to lug along. I always include a few special pieces too - a favorite piece of jewelry can create a subtle transformation, and every girl likes to feel dressed up even when she’s living like a forest vagabond. 

Rocky Mountain National Park spans the Continental Divide...

It’s full of emerald valleys, alpine tundra meadows, airy mountain peaks and crystal lakes. There’s herds of elks in the low meadows, little red foxes dashing amongst the brush and 6 foot tall moose frequenting the willow thickets. It’s best to head out out at dusk to catch the action.

Over head there’s the darkest ravens and hawks peering down.

After a long day on the trails be sure to bring your picnic supplies in at night. We learned the hard way, the Grand Lake black bear snuck right into our cabin yard to see what crumbs we’d left in the baskets. It all ended well, after a serious clean up mission we won't make that mistake again.

Have a great weekend you guys! Get outside to play!
