Colorado Adventures: Durango Visit

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be able to go on a little mini vacation to see my big brother, Aaron, in Durango, Colorado. It was so much fun! It was the first time all summer that I had been able to get out of town and I couldn't think of anyone more fun to go visit then my big brother.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw a lot of photos from the weekend but I wanted to share some that I couldn't capture on my smart phone. 

Here's the drive through the San Juan Mountains on our way to Durango...

And there's me driving! Yay!

Sebastian was camped out on my lap almost the entire time, I brought his kennel with us but I think with three girls in the car there was too much action for him to miss out on.

And more driving...

A lot of small towns in Colorado are known for their impressive and beautiful murals, like this one that we saw at a restaurant we ate at in Ouray, Colorado.

The pass that we went over is called Red Mountain Pass. Any guess why?

When we finally got there I was able to see my big brother! The family resemblance is stunning right? It was definitely good to see him!

As the menfolk prepared the barbeque my roommate, Ali, and I sat on this lovely double foldy chair and watched. Sebastian is doing his best koala impression. Good work pup.

Everyone decided to go float the river on Saturday, I'm not much of a water lover so Sebastian and I went to the dog park. In Durango, you have to hike to get to the dog park. Geesh. Mountain towns.

After the dog park I went downtown Durango to do a little exploring and I had so much fun! I of course found a totally cute bike to take a photo of :)

And this really cool old hotel! It was such a fun and awesome vibe downtown and I really enjoyed it. I think I was down there for several hours.

Sebastian took the trip quite easily because he just got a free ride in my purse the whole time. He totally loved it. I couldn't get him to come out.

Here's the photo of all of us before we went out to some of the little bars and pubs downtown on Saturday night, Christine is on the left, me, Sebastian, and Ali. Great trip and great times!


  1. Sebastian is just the cutest! :) I liked his koala pose and that he rode in your purse! Glad you enjoyed your mini vaca - looks like you all had fun!

  2. Sebastian is adorable! I wish my dogs were little again so I could carry them around in my purse! Looks like you had a great trip! I love Durango! We went there like 6 or 7 years ago and had so much fun.


I'd love to hear from you!
