Winter has officially arrived in Colorado (and not just because today is the first day of Winter!) We’ve had our first, our second, and our third snow. I am notorious for staying in and cuddling up with a hot cup of hot coco on snow days but I also love to get outside breathe some fresh air after the storm. Each season in Colorado is beautiful for different reasons but I seriously swoon over snow hikes. The air is fresh and clean, layers keep you toasty (a little too toasty at times), and a world covered in white is a sight to see!

The thing about where we live is that hiking trails are everywhere and so close (this is why we really could never move away.) This beautiful Colorado morning we found ourselves at Bear Creek Park which is the park for most of our slacklining, volleyball, and Frisbee excursions but it also has some trails in the back that climb into the mountains. We slipped on our Chaco boots and threw on our vests (because we knew with just a little hiking we would be overheating in our winter coats) and hit the trails!

Don’t let the cooler temperatures keep you in! Winter has so much beauty to offer. Bundle up, lace up, and enjoy a winter wonderland!

  • I am so jealous that you have snow! I’m still waiting ever so patiently up here in southern Ontario.

      It will come soon! It is now officially winter!

  • you and bruce are adorable!!!! i’m all about going out in the snow to throw snowballs for our dog (he can never figure out where they go when he catches them in the air!), but other than that, i’m with you on the staying in and drinking cocoa 🙂

  • These photos are so bright and joyful! I must admit that I love having warmer winters (I get cold SO easy), but I am always a little sad we don’t get more snow.

  • This makes me want SNOW even more!! I’m thinking it will be a brown Christmas in MN:( Love these beautiful snowy pictures.

  • I am so jealous of all your hikes! You always wear the cutest outfits and see the most beautiful scenery! You’re always inspiring me to GET OUT of Chicago and breath the fresh air…

    Happy Holidays!
