Beautiful Colorado Mountains

My trip to the midwest wouldn't be complete without seeing the Colorado Mountains again. I fall in love with them when I first visited Colorado in January. It was breathtaking and it left a warmth and comfort feeling in my heart. I knew I had to return to these mountains in the summer. I drove through the Independence Pass which was a longer route back to Denver. I was literally on edge during the drive. I felt like I was going to fall off the mountains on some of the narrow roads. I even thought about turning back around and use the major highway instead but I was already half way up and why not finish this journey...?! So I continue driving and got to the top of Colorado's Rocky Mountains and viewed the Continental Divide. I am so glad I did it and maybe I'll return in fall.

Special thanks to my friend Jorgen! These are fun pictures from our phone during the three days I was out there.
