I set off on Saturday to explore Silver Plume (population roughly 170) with eager intentions of seeing Dram Apothecary. Silly me, I didn’t even check their hours (they were closed), but this little town still held my imagination and curiosity tightly. I’m just a plain old sucker for small town charm. Add in a place enclosed by the mountains? Gone, bye, just write me off. It’s a love hate relationship when I’m so visually overloaded I can’t stand it. Took a break inside Silver Plume Tea House with a cup of hot tea by a window seat and watched how the waitresses interacted with locals in the softest way. But my attention was continuously jerked to the mountains as the weather changed so rapidly in the most fascinating way. It didn’t faze anyone but me. Just a typical day in Colorado.

This was the first Saturday in months that I had no travel obligations or plans, and this town completely rejuvenated me. It felt like a little slice of home.

Colorado, you’ve already captured my mind in the best way possible.
