I see you lost in what you create…all of time in this one single day.
This time, we created moments and memories. Or did we make memories of moments created for us?
For four days, I had the great opportunity to show my new home to old friends. I always love it when friends and family come to our place – it’s a chance for our little family to showcase our secret spots and share what makes this place so special and amazing to us in ways photographs just can’t describe.
We explored the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Zapata Falls, camped in the Rio Grande National Forest, hiked the Continental Divide Trail above Wolf Creek Pass, and caught glimpses of some charismatic mega fauna along the Middle Frisco Creek Trail. We ate dutchoven dinners and breakfasts, enjoyed our favorite local lunch and dinner spots (Windsor Hotel & 3 Barrel Brewing Company), and even found time to explore some questionable back roads in the national forest.

Summer is a magical time in and around the San Luis Valley and having the opportunity to share this place with folks that have never explored it before is even better…
