Week 200 Road Trip Photos


The week from February 27 to March 5 was the 200th week of me shooting and publishing the weekly 1-minute web series Moving Postcard (depending on where I live at the time, it's subtitled In A Berlin Minute, In A Brooklyn Minute or In A Colorado Minute - and sometimes In Another Minute).

It also happened to be Scott's birth week. To celebrate in style, Scott, Whiskey and I went on a road trip right through the state of Colorado, from Fort Collins in the north-east to Four Corners in the south-west.

Our four feet in four states at Four Corners


We stayed in Pagosa Springs, dined in Durango and Buena Vista, visited Four Corners (including quick dips into Utah, Arizona and New Mexico), Mesa Verde National Park, and Arkansas Headwater State Park.

Along the road we saw so many amazing and beautiful sights and vistas that the statement "The journey is the destination!" became the true motto of our trip. It was the best! And I'm looking forward to many more…

Leaving Pagosa Springs, Colorado


Below are a few photos I mostly took and published via Instagram during the trip.

I will be publishing several 1-minute videos over the next few weeks and several more photo posts. When I do, I will add the links here:

Driving through Mineral County, Colorado

Driving down the long Gunbarrel Road with the Rocky Mountains all around us was an just one of many surprise highlights of this trip.

Can't wait to return to the Arkansas Headwaters when it's warm enough to get in the water.
