A Birthday Well-Spent in Colorado


At the end of 2016, I took my first long road trip across the West Coast of America and it completely blew my expectations out of the water. I was immediately hooked on exploring different parts of the United States, and was inspired to set a personal goal to travel more during 2017. This led me to my newest post: my recent travels to Colorado.

Once again, I reached out to my traveling homie Kelly, and we threw together a very spontaneous trip in about two weeks. I wanted to spend my birthday doing what I loved most: photography. What better way to do that than by driving through one of the most gorgeous states in the USA?

It was the end of winter, and early signs of spring were starting to come out; I was enamored with some of the views we found. I can't even imagine these sights during the fall, when all the colors are in full bloom; I foresee a potential future trip during the autumn season.

I hope to inspire at least one person that reads this to go out and travel. Go see some of the beautiful parks our country has to offer. It blows my mind to think of how beautiful this country is, and all of the uncharted lands that few people know about.

I have to thank my great friend Kelly for tagging along, and for creating these memories with me. Until next time, my friend!

Without further ado, enjoy some photos from the beautiful state of Colorado (and a few from Monument Valley in Utah).


West Coast Journey 2016


I’ve wracked my brain for the past few days, trying to think of something to write for this post. I’ll keep it short, and let the pictures do the talking.

This trip was nothing short of amazing. Exploring the country's national parks and iconic landmarks was an experience I’ve never before had an opportunity to do. It blows my mind that this trip was planned through casual conversation with my good friend Kelly, while watching a UofL game at a bar. Before I knew it, I had my bags packed, and I was headed to the airport.

I look back at these images and feel truly blessed to have seen all the things we were able to see in just ten short days. I’m in awe of what this country has to offer in terms of natural views and beauties. I’m hooked, and am already thinking about my next trip in the spring.

Below is a map of our journey, and some snapshots I captured along the way. Head's up: there's quite a few!
