Gallery: Our First Summer in Colorado

Back in early June Chyna and I made the big move from Seattle, WA to our new home in Loveland, CO at the foot of the Front Range. It was a whirlwind of a summer getting settled in to our new home as well as getting out to explore the wilds of the Rockies. Fortunately, we were able to get out quite a bit and below is a gallery of a few of my favorite photos from our first summer in Colorado. Enjoy!
