We tend to seek out the lesser known areas for our own adventures. This year we opted to spend our fall road trip weekend in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area, located on the western slopes of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The Flat Tops Wilderness is a bit further north than the better known parts of the western slopes…but it is gorgeous, even when there’s a smokey haze.
We all have our own adventure comfort zones. They’re the bubble we live inside of that expands, contracts + wiggles about based on the life experiences we either love or hate. A person’s comfort zone is always changing; especially if you’re seeking out adventures. It can be a dramatic change of gaining confidence and comfort in a foreign country after weeks of language/culture immersion. Or, it can be a small change, such as falling asleep quickly in a tent the night after a restless, worried sleep on a backpacking trip.
