I decided to visit my mom in Trinidad, Colorado, so I made the road trip from Austin, Texas (about a 12 hour drive).
For anybody that has made the drive through north Texas, you have my sympathies. It’s a boring ass drive. Luckily I had my music and several containers of 5-hour Energy.
My mother lives near Trinidad, Colorado in a place called Weston.
Weston was a nice escape. I had no Internet access. No cell service. I was literally in the wilderness.
Near Weston is a very lovely place called Cuchara, Colorado. Here are some pictures I took of the scenery.
You may view the rest of the pictures on my Flickr account.
Overall, the trip was very nice. While I wouldn’t wish a 12-hour drive on anybody (as it’s quite physically and mentally draining), it was worth seeing my mom’s side of the family again.
