Daily Wanderlust: Breckenridge, Colorado

Editor’s Note: This post is a part of the #winosontheroad series. Over Yonderlust and d travels ’round are road tripping and exploring America through June 27. Be sure to check out all of the posts of life on the open road.

Summertime in the Colorado Rocky Mountains is nothing like in the winter.

In mid-June, snow clings only to the highest, bare gray points of the peaks. Below, life is everywhere. In the bountiful green-leafed trees. In the rushing streams carrying the last of the melting snow from the Continental Divide. Even on the streets, where instead of ski-booted, bundled people walk the streets, those in warm-weather-attire wander or bike.

It’s beautiful. It’s a reminder that we need to love the beauty that surrounds us in our every day life.

I spent the past weekend enjoying this gorgeous world, splitting my time between Breckenridge and Keystone.

Breckenridge, which is home to the famous Breckenridge Ski Resort, is more than 9,000 feet above sea level (and believe me, you feel it).
