If you thought the long winter only extended ski season and contributed to an epic rafting season, there’s one other advantage you’ll see soon. The more than favorable conditions for the state’s aspen and other trees means the leaves will change starting mid-September, and the colors will be more vibrant. Once October hits, all of the mountains should have that extra pop of color, but it will fade by the end of the month. Make sure to take your camera if you travel to the mountains this fall to capture the natural beauty of “leaf-peeping.” #fallcolors#purecolorado#dontmissout#thelifeyoulove
As the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo get closer, Colorado will have at least one athlete to support on their journey. Boulder resident Brooke Raboutou is officially the first member of the USA Climbing National Team that will compete at the Olympics. The 18-year-old’s climbing skills at the World Championships last month earned her a spot on the team. Climbing is debuting as an Olympic sport for the first time next year, and Raboutou will be one of 20 women in the world reaching for a gold medal. #purecolorado#tokyo2020#usa#climbing#thelifeyoulove

Summer has been a blast, but I’m ready for some fresh powder at 10,000 feet!
These cool crisp mornings aren’t helping the itch at all either!
You are really trying to impress me Colorado. The sights, sounds, and smells all come together. There is nothing that can compare to this picture than actually being there. You can see the views, but cannot hear the wind whistling along the rocks and through the trees. You cannot smell the wildflowers that are still blooming up here above 11000 feet. It's all so breathtaking. #cdt2019#cdtsobo2019#colorado#hikingcolorado#purecolorado#medicinebowrouttnationalforest

Colorado is well known for its position in the aerospace industry, but it just made a huge leap when it comes to solar power. In Walden, the first floating solar array was installed to collect energy for the local water treatment plant. The array has been collecting solar energy since October 2018 and has met its functioning expectations for almost an entire year. You might see other water-based solar arrays soon once the Colorado Energy Office finds other places to continue testing their latest innovation. #colorado#aerospace#solar#innovation#purecolorado#thelifeyoulove
Sunrise Circle Amphitheater, Flagstaff Summit, Built in 1932 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. It overlooks the City of Boulder And was created in a naturally acoustically sound depression in the cliffside. Hello Boulder!
Not all sunsets are created equal! Last night, I have one word to describe the sunset E-P-I-C!!! Combine that with a gorgeous field of Colorado sunflowers, you get a once in a lifetime capture! We have some amazing sunrises and sunsets in Colorado, and this ranks up there as one of my best!
