The great state of Colorado is not my home of origin; yet, it’ll be my home for the holidays. I don’t have ample amount of funds to travel back home to see family and friends so I’ll be spending the holidays here in Denver, and I could not think of any better place to be. Denver is a growing metropolis—ranked 24th in U.S. population—with a small town feel; so, there’s plenty to do with plenty of good folks. For turkey day I was able to meet-up with about 20 other random, die-hard Saints’ fans to watch football, share stories, and, of course, chow-down on a fabulous spread of food—Saints won a close one.
The festivities don’t have to stop there. Colorado is full of fun events, activities and adventures during the winter months. When it comes to the great outdoors, I personally don’t ski or snowboard, however, I do enjoy snow tubing and cross-country skiing. In a couple of weeks some friends and I will make the most of a weekend getaway in the mountains. We’ll spend a couple of nights in a cabin then make our way up to Vail for the annual Snow Daze festival. I’ll be back in class before too long, but spending my entire winter break in Colorado will be a time well spent with fond memories.
