I’m Back! Photos from July and August

Some Animal Collective for your listening enjoyment. The song is called My Girls.

Hello everyone! Well, its been a while since I’ve posted a serious post on here. Today I’m posting a bunch of pictures from the past two months and it includes some fourth of July pictures, a few pictures from my brothers wedding, as well as some random shots I got here and there.

Fourth of July

These next two pictures were taken during the Fourth of July at my parents house. My brother, Blake, and his wife, Sara, were moving back to Colorado this weekend. We had a pretty great weekend but it was still super hectic because everyone was getting ready for the wedding that was to take place the following weekend for Blake and Sara.

Blake and Sara’s Wedding

Blake and Sara’s wedding was a total party. It took place at a lake outside of Vail that was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in Vail Village the weekend of the wedding and just lived the proverbial dream. I would say that the wedding weekend was probably one of my most enjoyable experiences to date. Everyone had a blast.

My dad and I went up camping near Buena Vista/Salida for a weekend. We did a bunch of fishing at this lake. This is an HDR shot of the lake.

My Drive to Work

Sometimes I get up really early to go to work. Occasionally I beat the sun up. This is a shot of the sunrise off of Highway 93 just outside of Golden on my way to Boulder.

Adventure Time w/ Chad and Kyle

Kyle and I go on adventures sometimes. This was the end of a 5 mile hike from our apartment to the top of South Table down to the Ace Hi Tavern. This is also a picture of Kyle’s first beer since being 21.

In our apartment complex there is a bulletin board on our floor that has nothing on it except this missing cat poster. I thought it was pretty creative.

Last Day of Work & Rockies Game

On my last day of work I got up super early to get to work so I could get out of there early. This is a shot from the parking lot.

After work, I met up with Blake and Sara and a bunch of other people to go to a Rockies game. These are a couple shots of the game/downtown.
