48 Hours in Denver

I wanted to share a quick trip I took to Denver and Boulder last weekend! I went with a group of my college friends and Colorado felt like the perfect getaway for great hiking, food, and then some.

Pictured below is an old renovated house from the 1800's. It was such a beautiful home with a ton of character- I'd recommend staying here with a large group, it was perfect. Denver isn't a walkable city, so consider that when booking. Our first day-trip was to Chautauqua Park in Boulder to see the flat irons. We hiked for about two hours and made it to the first and second flat irons (there are a total of five!). I would have loved to keep going, however, it was getting pretty cold with the snow! It was pretty amazing to be able in the middle of the flat irons and overlook the snowy trail.

Last but not least, we went to the Red Rocks Amphitheater. I've always wanted to see a concert here, so it seems like a good excuse to come back. :) The trail felt totally different because the terrain was much more desert like, and of course a reddish tint. We hiked for about two hours and I enjoyed every moment of it. This hike was much easier and less of an incline. As much as I love the city life, being in the Rocky Mountains is a great escape from everything.
