The state of Colorado located up in the mountains is very scenic and breathtaking. I have always wanted to camp in a cozy little tent by the river in the midst of mountains and finally got to do it in Colorado. Since the weather has been so unpredictable lately, we decided to camp in a little log cabin bordering the Colorado river. The cabin was a part of the Winding River Resort campground located few miles from Rocky Mountain National Park right by the Grand Lake. The cabin was a little chilly during the night when we snuggled into our blankets to keep ourselves bundled up and warm.
Waking up in the morning in the midst of mother nature surrounded by peaks, creeks and wildlife was like a dream come true. We went for an early morning walk and I was very excited to see the horse stables, vegetable farms and hear the river water gushing through the creeks. We also enjoyed breakfast in the picnic table right next to our log cabin by the fire pit that kept us warm during the chilly morning. During our stay in the campground, we did not have phone signals and it felt so good to be out of the digital world and so close to mother nature for once. I could easily imagine how it would have been to live in the early ages and how much more intimate and close people must have been to each other in those ages. I was lucky to experience it in today’s world of digital chaos. I will recommend this trip to all those adventure seekers who want some peaceful time to themselves away from city life.
