    The Flatirons are so much closer to Boulder’s city center than I realized… a 5-minute drive and we were at their base, enjoying an Americana breakfast of eggs and flapjacks at the dining hall of the historic Colorado Chautauqua, an adult education movement popularized in the late 19th Century. Today, the place still puts on workshops, live concerts and encourages people to get out and hike.

    I was so thrilled one of my college besties, Erica, was able to join me for a hike around the Flatirons. She moved to Denver a few years back and it was great to see Boulder – a 30-minute drive from Denver – through a local’s perspective.

    The Garden of the Gods – an otherwordly park of red sandstone formations jutting out of green plateau in Colorado Springs – is a photographer’s paradise. I’m not the greatest photographer but the beauty of this place speaks for itself.

    We got to zip around the Garden of the Gods on electric bikes through Amp’d Adventures and had the absolute best time. The mini engine gives you extra oomph to power up steep hills and the fat tires let you venture off the asphalt and into the rough terrain.

    The view from my balcony at the Garden of the Gods Resort. Every room here boasts outstanding views of the Garden of the Gods. It’s especially pretty at dusk when the setting sun illuminates the rocks in shades of pink and purple and a warren of rabbits come out to feed on the lawn below.

    My beau and I took a lot of cheesy pictures while exploring the Garden of the Gods.
