  1. I love the beautiful mountains of Colorado. The clean, fresh air and the cool crisp nights are my favorite. It looks like you had a fantastic time.

  2. Monica says:

    What a fun story. I’m so glad you made it to the whitewater trip. I would have been in tears to miss that. There are very few things I will camp out for and the whitewater trips are at the top of that list. I’m with you – every time I travel I have a wonderful time but there is no place like home and my own bed!

    • Melanie Mendez-Gonzales says:

      Yes, Monica! There was no way that I was going to miss that. Stay tuned for that video coming soon 🙂

  3. I love going camping but haven’t had a chance to go in years!
    We used to tent all the time when we were kids and had many grand adventures. They were some ofthe best times we had growing up!

  4. Cristine says:

    Sounds like lots of memories despite the missteps. I will never go camping. I can’t rough it. But I’m sure my kids wish that I would.

  5. Erlene A says:

    Sounds like you made the best of the first day, even with the mishap. I agree, that you can make things work when you’re with family.

    • Melanie Mendez-Gonzales says:

      Thanks, Erlene! We did make the best of it. Really, we wouldn’t have had such a great view of Mt. Princeton if we hadn’t had our mishap.

  6. wow your photos are amazing and looks like the scenery alone would be worth a trip there. It is somewhere I have never been but looks gorgeous!

    • Melanie Mendez-Gonzales says:

      Thanks so much, Laura! The scenery made me fall in love with Colorado, for sure. If you ever have the chance, I strongly suggest it.

  7. Milena says:

    The best times together don’t follow a plan. I’m sure when you were in it you felt some stress, but look how great things turned out!

    • Melanie Mendez-Gonzales says:

      So true, Milena! I’m actually not a big planner but I wanted this trip to be perfect. Turns out that it was despite the plans I tried to make.
