mile high city, and abstract art

Happy almost holidays people! Christmas is probably my favorite holiday because I love twinkly lights, good food, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m sure there is a lot more that is compelling, but for me a few twinkly lights really do the trick.

This year my gift to my partner, Isaac, was a trip to Denver, Colorado. The last time I was there was for a high school social justice conference, so this time around I was able to experience a lot more.

Denver definitely is a beautiful place, and while driving into Boulder it looked like the mountains had enveloped the sky. Breathtaking. We got to hike the Mount Sanitas trail, and precariously climb down a steep and slightly icy trail down. It was definitely a little bit of an adventure, but that’s life with Isaac for you. He’s much more bold than I am, but it’s good to be pushed out of my comfort zone because then we reached this valley, and it was so peaceful and quiet that I couldn’t help but snap a photo.

We drank lots of awesome craft beer, tried Torchy’s tacos, had amazing paella at El Five, and visited the Clyfford Still Museum. To be honest, I didn’t understand abstract art, but after this museum I definitely was very intrigued. I love the idea of artists pushing the boundaries, and breaking tradition. I also love how art can be about interpretation from the audience rather than about offering a narrative. We actually bought a poster for our apartment to frame up – yay for art for our apartment!
