Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

Wanderlust (n) a strong desire or urge to travel and explore the world

The alarm was set at 5:30 AM.

Jessica and I were packing back for the trip until 2AM. I stayed overnight at Jess's parents' house after a long day of shooting. We were heading to Denver tomorrow early morning.

THE MOUNTAIN IS CALLING.

I planned this trip over a month because Colorado is Jessica's dream destination. I got so lucky to book Airbnb at Estes Park for $40 per night!!!!! We flew with Spirit Airline and shared a checked bag for price.

 Jessica slept right after the plane took off. We slept roughly 3 hours last night.

I wanted to sleep on the plane, but I also needed to finish editing pictures from the photo shoot the day before. I ended up finishing my work on the plane. Therefore, I can upload all my work while I go hiking!

I also learned that many car rental companies can give you WAY CHEAPER price than Enterprise. We were looking at Enterprise to rent a SUV and it costed us around $300 for 4 days. E-Z Rent-A-Car quoted me $100 with tax!!

 We had the first stop in Denver for brunch at Bristo Vendome.

I was very excited for this trip. I planned to hike on many trails inside and outside Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). However, I did not realize that snow and weather could be an important factor to make a hiking becomes very difficult.

We arrived at Estes Park in the evening and it was cloudy. Lack of sleep led us to have a nap for two hours. I found out that you do not need to pay the entrance fee to RMNP if you enter the park before 6:30AM and after 8PM.

Four Lakes Trail

I did not know much about hiking at RMNP but from the Internet. We arrived at Bear lake head trail early morning. We hiked pass four lakes which were Bear Lake, Nymph Lake, Dream Lake, and Emerald Lake. All those lake was frozen.
