While the gals (Amy and Sam) were here, we spent a day driving through the mountains to visit Leadville, CO. I'd never been, and as we all know, exploring new places with friends is one of my favorite things in all the land. I love watching people experience new things, and with travel, I love watching them take in all the new sights and sounds and point out all of the things that they find interesting. You learn so much about a person when you adventure together.

We stopped for lunch at a mom & pop burger joint and inhaled some yummy food (because we're super ladylike.) It was so much fun to walk around and explore little shops and side streets. Leadville has some really fun art on the exterior of their buildings. My favorite being the wall of Aspen trees because, in my opinion, Aspens are one of the best parts of Colorado. We walked, chatted, stopped to take photos, took a coffee break, stopped to take more photos, fought the wind and lost, stopped to take more photos, got frostbite (okay, I'm being dramatic), headed home, pulled over to take more photos, and arrived home exhausted but with hearts so full. More road trips like this, please.
