Just the Two of Us | Collective Vail |US Travel Photography

This post may be about two months overdue but I felt the need to put it out in the world, not just because it is important that I share about taking the time to be with my one and only, but also because our trip may be one that others are considering and I would have loved to know a little more about what I was getting myself into!

We spent three nights at the Collective Retreats outside of Vail and it really was dreamy…in a lot of ways. The website really does not do it justice, the scenery was FAR more beautiful than I could have imagined! All in all our time spent at Vail Collective was beautiful but I wish I had known a couple of things before I committed. I would say that it is totally worth it for a couple of nights, we had scheduled to be there four nights and we only made it three then decided to drive to Denver and get back to city life a day early! It really was a beautiful experience and I do not want anyone to read the negative things below and think that I do not feel that it was worth it…it really was! I just know that I wish that there were more honest reviews, like this, out there that explained a bit more of what we were getting ourselves into!

I have added some captions to many of the photos below. Feel free to comment with any questions you may have if you are thinking of making this trip!

We filled our trip with everything from hiking the Mayflower Gulch Trail, shopping the Outlets at Silverthorne, trying to hike at Hanging Lake but the parking lot was full so we instead spent the afternoon at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, rode the gondola up to the top of the mountain and shopped in Vail and so much more…I have included the rest of my favorite images below. There really is no more magical place than the Rockies!
