I strapped on my Bramhall Leather-Wool 6-Inch Boots, zipped up my Mount Cabot Waterproof Jacket in dark green and made the three-and-a-half hour trek to Aspen, CO. (When I say ‘trek’, I mean sleep in the backseat while the guys take turns driving).
My jacket and boots made the transition from the bustling city of Denver to the calm mountains of Aspen a breeze due to their versatility.
I looked right at home at the local coffee shop downtown but still able to fit in with the outdoor crowd at the Maroon Bells peaks.
There are many words to describe what I saw on the road to describe the beauty of Colorado but I will leave you with one: ridiculous.
The Aspen trees exploded with vibrant yellows. There’s so much wildlife, too – mountain goats, rams, marmots, bison, and elk, just roaming the hills without a care in the world.
And after everyone went to bed, the Milky Way lit up the sky. Luckily, I had my Seymours River Merino Wool Swacket (that’s a sweater jacket) to keep me warm for the night.
If you ever get a chance to visit Colorado during the fall, make sure to go. And don’t forget to pack your boots, a warm, stylish sweater and a waterproof jacket.
