getaway :: denver+moab+friends

Last summer my boyfriend and I flew out to Denver, Colorado to visit some close friends. That summer there were record high’s for forest fires, throughout the Colorado and Utah area. You’ll be able to see the haze in the sky in a lot of the photos.
After lots of hiking and fun, we rented a car and drove out to Moab, Utah.

Officially one of my favorite places on earth.

Speechless beauty.

From Moab, we drove up to Park City to visit some more friends for the 4th of July, and ended our trip at a Sounders game in Salt Lake City.

Awesome trip, so much fun.

Here’s a ton of photos = ) :

First off meet my friend’s dog Boji: (so cute!)
