When I haven't been interning, I think that I have taken full advantage of all the adventures that Colorado has to offer. I've been to the top of Mt. Evans (14,265 feet!), white water rafted down Clear Creek and even mustered enough courage to go cliff jumping! I don't think that there's been a day that I haven't come home exhausted from the day's activities. Even in Denver, just blocks from our apartments, you are never bored with the 16th Mall and the different festivals that take place almost every weekend. What makes these adventures even better are the people I get to spend them with. The friendships I've made here are irreplaceable... I don't think I've ever laughed as hard and as much as I have this summer.
It's safe to say that I'll be bummed when it comes time head back to Iowa... but who knows I could end up back out here after graduation in May-- I'll admit to doing a little apartment hunting while I've been here. :)
