A quick visit to Colorado

February 28, 2018


I go to Colorado quite frequently & even have some weddings to photograph out that way. My favorite places in Colorado are all along the western slope, west past Denver. My dad is from a little town out there called Gunnison. It’s one of my favorite places to visit. I love going out there to see my grandparents every year. We’ll go snowmobiling, check out the little coffee shops, & have fun in the snow & mountains. 

The Bean in Gunnison, CO has some of the best coffee. It is so rich & smooth! It also has some great breakfast options & a fun, hometown feel with friendly people. We always stop here for coffee multiple times. Camp 4 Coffee in Crested Butte, CO also has some great coffee. And it is in such a cute, fun building. 

Crested Butte is about an hour from Gunnison & has some great hiking, skiing, & snowmobiling areas. It’s full of neat shops & great restaurants. I especially love the variety of art galleries that it has to offer. It is a bustling little town but definitely not as crazy busy as some other places like Vail. It’s a little more off the beaten path but still has A LOT to offer. 

One of our favorite places to stop is Montanya. They have great drinks & also offer good food & nonalcoholic drink options. Do you have any travel plans or favorite places to visit in the winter? Planning to elope in Colorado? Let me know in the comments below!
