colorado, synopsis

"Just make sure you dress really preppy. They won't say anything to you because you're cute. I just look like a dirty hippie."

Since I've been home, I've been working every day to try to earn back all the money I blew on gas and burgers in the Great American West. My attention span for blogging is incredibly low.

So we mostly stuck to the mountains, ran around on fun trails, and drank a whole lot of coffee.

It begins:
