Rocky Mountains: Estes Park livin’ and a continued addiction to the mountains- May 16,2010 to present
In May of 2010, my boyfriend Alex and I moved to Estes Park, Colorado, which is right outside of Rocky Mountain National Park. We spent about eight months there, backpacking, exploring, and taking advantage of seasonal work. We started the blog Making Friends With Mountains , where I did most of the writing and he did most of the photography. The blog still exists and has also been merged with my blog here. We no longer live in Estes Park, but still spend a fair amount of time running away to the mountains, whether it is for an afternoon or a weekend. In this section of the blog you can find routes and stories of hiking, backpacking, and snowshoeing, as well as other activities to do or places to go in the mountains (hot springs, festivals, etc.). The section currently focuses mostly on Rocky Mountain National Park, but will expand as we explore other areas!
