Favorite Western Vacation

I think life should be a journey and an adventure. So I like to think of my life as a vacation, and living in gorgeous sunny California makes it easy to feel as if I’m on a perma vacay!

However, when we do actually leave California for vacation, we typically go to Colorado or Wyoming. We load up the car, head to the stunning National Forests for some backpack camping and hiking in the vast mountains before setting up camp next to a gorgeous lake. Fishing for our meals makes me feel at peace and definitely tests my patience!

I also love small, quaint mountain towns. My current favorite mountain town is Steamboat Springs, Colo. My dream is to buy a ranch outside this town one day – my fingers are crossed!

I also really enjoy Utah and Idaho. I have never been to Montana but I know it’s a must. I have a positive feeling I will fall in love with the big sky state!

So whether it’s hiking to a lake, camping several nights or staying at a cute bed and breakfast in a cozy ski town, I love visiting places in the gorgeous West!

As a Pendleton Posse member I feel so lucky that I get to visit so many great western towns throughout our travels. We all work so hard but through our traveling we get to see wonderful places and receive rewarding experiences in return.
