    Colorado ruined me... pic heavy

    I just got back from my first- definitely not last- trip to Colorado. UNBELIEVABLE. This was my first taste of the West and it did not disappoint in any way. I was solo for part of it and then my girlfriend flew in to meet me so there wasn’t any serious wheeling involved. The jeep did have to make the 2000 mile drive home after the fun was all over with so I was definitely being cautious. The sights were amazing, weather was great, and I’m basically now questioning how much longer I have to stay in NY. Pics are huge 36mp files so I’m posting the low res versions. Hopefully the quality doesn’t get ruined. On to the pics-

    A very welcome sight to see after a few days on the road-

    A popular photography spot that I wanted to check out at the crystal mill-

    I had some time to kill waiting for a delayed flight so explored a bit around Montrose-

    We stayed in telluride so Imogene was a must visit-

    Did an easy scenic ride down Last Dollar Road-

    I don’t think any roads had a bad view-

    The girl wanted to take a day trip to Moab to visit Arches National Park so we hit the road super early to beat the crowds-

    We only had limited time and it was getting to feel more like Africa by the minute, but I looked up a quick trail local to the park. Great scenery and a free jeep wash-

    Already planning the next trip. Till next time, Colorado-

    DID I MENTION MY RIG IS FOR SALE?

    Thanks fellas! I put just under 5500 miles on the jeep in 2 weeks but it was most definitely worth every one of them.

    Great pictures! You have talent. It’s real hard not to want to pick up stakes and move out west. Amazing trip!

    What great pictures.

    My favorites are the night sky.

    That view is making me long to be back in my home state of Colorado where I can see it most every night.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Great shot of Crystal Mill. Probably the most photographed spot in the state next to Maroon Bells.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
