Snapshots Of Our Mountain Holiday

IMG_2616

We arrived back in Denver on Friday, but Christmas already feels long gone. We had a wonderful five days of retreat in the mountains – just what we needed. The cool mountain air and perfect Colorado sunshine was restorative and invigorating.

Thaddeus and I spent the holiday together just the two of us and it was wonderfully relaxing. We skied hard, slept copious amounts, ate plenty, lay in bed for hours watching Netflix and took strolls around the charming town of Telluride.

After four nights there, we popped over to Ouray for a visit to the vapor caves, a lovely hike and a night at a beautifully restored historic hotel. Before our long drive back to the Front Range, we enjoyed a quick morning dip at the Orvis Hot Springs, which have quickly become my new absolute favorites.

Here are a few iphone snaps of our Christmas vacay! Enjoy!

  1. Sounds like you packed many treasures on the Western Slope. Orvis and dinner at the Thai restaurant is the perfect day. Next time you head this way check out Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs. Super affordable/adorable, great trails (with free snow shoes available), and close to Paonia ;) Come visit some time!

    • Thanks Marian.
      I will definitely check out Avalanche. We love going to hot springs :)
      I haven’t been to Paonia for awhile…I would love to get up that way this summer/
      Hope you are well! Happy New Year.
