Postcards From the Weekend: High Altitude

There’s a moment—when you break out of the trees and a new world, a new view, new life, is unveiled before you. It’s usually hard-earned, and never gets old. Snowcapped peaks rise up to provide scale and perspective, and a vivid blue sky creates contrast and highlights the rainbow-colored blanket of wildflowers at your feet. High altitude hiking isn’t always easy, but the views from the top are worth every single step.

Postcard Location: Just outside of Breckenridge, Colorado along the Colorado Trail.
