The last and final part of our Colorado road trip is here! Putting together these final pictures has really made me start to miss Colorado. Pagosa Springs was a real winter wonderland treat and we will definitely be back to experience the summer. On our last day we ate at Two Chicks and a Hippie and it was flat out amazing! I got the Honey Bear Latte, which was amazing, and both of us ordered the Hippie Breakfast. The prices were reasonable and the food was fantastic.
After breakfast, we went back to the house, grabbed the pups and our snowboogie, and headed out to find the perfect hill! We did not have to look far at all, as there ended up being this completely untouched hill right by the house we were staying at. The snow was pretty deep, but we trucked our way up (little Nala doesn’t like the deep snow, so we had to carry her)! This hill was seriously SO much fun and we had the absolute best time. After Layla continually chased after us down the hill, the path became pretty bumpy and rough. We then trained her to chase us down in her own lane. After a couple of runs, we were gaining some serious speed! Later, we went to High Country Lodge to snow tube; one of the coolest things I’ve done! It’s only $12 for two hours (including the tube) and it is seriously worth every penny! They even have a smaller hill to the side for the little ones. I highly recommend this place!
We are still in the process of putting together a video of the entire trip, so stay tuned! 🙂 Below is a list of my top 5 things to bring for a snowy road trip! Thanks for reading and happy Sunday ❤
1 . Hot Chillys – I had never even heard of these until the Christmas before last. They are number 1 on my list for a reason! If you are not used to the cold or are just a huge baby like me, you need these thermal long underwear!
2 . Ice Scraper – This is a must! Last year we did not have one and it was brutal!
3 . Water resistance boots – I linked a pair above that I wore and they were absolutely perfect. Make sure you get knee high ones incase the snow is deep.
4 . Layers – Make sure you bring enough along with the right sized tops and sweaters to layer underneath your big coats. Layers are key!
5 . Thermal Socks – You would be surprised how fast your feet can get cold through a thick rubber boot and 3 regular layers of socks (I definitely was). Freezing toes are no fun, especially the burning sensation that follows when you’ve found some warmth. These will most certainly save you a lot of pain! 🙂
