Fave places 2012: the wilds of Colorado, USA

Colorado - Olympic Training Center runnerExploring Colorado’s small towns, mountains and desert sand dunes made me realize how the adventurous spirit of this state attracts adrenaline junkies. It’s not a place for those who don’t want to embrace the outdoors.

As I discovered new to me areas of the state, I found people on a daily basis who were putting themselves out there – cycling, river rafting, hiking, rock climbing, running – it was an endless array of interaction with the landscape.

I visited the Olympic Training Centre, which also reinforced the need for speed, no matter what the competition.

So although I’m not the one doing all these activities, I was happily documenting the reasons why everyone else was doing it.
