Colorado
Posted on September 21, 2016 at 09:41



Just got back from a trip to Colorado to visit my girlfriend's family and a few other people we know out there. Though I've been there before a few times, this was my first time there when it wasn't freezing cold.

My girlfriend is originally from Colorado, but moved out here to DC for work when she graduated, so it's been good to have some insider info on what places to visit / eat / see from a local. Always the right way to go about travel.

The picture above was taken in Georgetown, CO before going on a train ride through the mountains to show off the absurdly beautiful scenery around there. I took a handful of pictures, but some are blown out from the scorchingly bright afternoon sun.

Here's an album

Forests and mountains have always inspired me more than anything else. The fresh air reminds me of time spent at my grandparent's mountain home when I was a kid, and the forest air that I'd smell through my window at home when I was first learning how to use GameMaker as a kid.

Anyway, I'm back home now and taking today off to get my bearings after a late flight last night. We move to a new apartment in a little over a month, which is closing in fast. Lots to get done but hoping I'll still find time for game dev along the way. Lots of unexpected loss of time has lead to delaying the first playtest and announcements, but still hoping to get to it asap.

What inspires you most of all?

Beautiful. Nothing quite like that in TX, we have the Guadalupe mountains but they aren't nearly as green. The devil's backbone doesn't come close either, though it has its moments. The closest I have really seen to anything like that would have to be when I was backpacking in NM. I'd love to visit Colorado and do some camping, it's definitely on my bucket list.

Wow thanks for sharing those. All we have here is flat fields and something that wants to be forests.
Must be why melancholia inspires me. And gore. And whenever someone is passionate about what they do. And and... idk

You have forests and mountains. We have hills and woods.

my dream is to move to Denver. it's a beautiful place that made me feel like I was in a movie I never belonged in, but I could. the idea of breaking the barriers of moving away from this area I live in is so amusing.

I don't think Colorado is even real.

Nice pictures, though. Northern Missouri isn't anything special, so I'm jealous of anything like this. :(
