Eldorado Springs proves me that my home is beautiful

It’s been six months since I returned to my home country to finish up my last year of university.  A few weeks ago, I graduated graduated Summa Cum Laude from SCAD with a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography.

I am now in Colorado for the summer to work and travel.  It’s really a  “kill two birds with one stone” moment because while I have an incredible opportunity to gain experiences in working in a corporation by interning with Cochlear, I am also immersing myself in the beautiful scenary of the state of Colorado!

While I have seen so much of the world, outside of my own country and culture, I still have so much more to explore in my own backyard, especially the West.

Just over a week ago, I had the privilege to spend a day in the mountains with a good friend of my mom’s who was her colleague in Boston over 20 years ago.

I always thought other places around the world such as Europe and New Zealand are far more beautiful than my own country; however, the US has many hidden treasures too.  Eldorado Springs, the mountains where I ventured, proved me that stunning landscapes exist in the US.


Mountains rose high above the sea level and trees covered a vast area of the land.  Watching the clouds move as the shadows shifted on the mountains and viewing the brilliant green leaves wave like a flag as the wind blows away are pieces of moments I enjoyed seeing.  There was one particular spot that made me stop and view the scene because not only it was so beautiful, but it made me think of American realism paintings – paintings that depicted the open vast landscapes of America with serene sentiments.

I have always thought America was beautiful. It’s just really big and takes longer to find those small pieces of paradise.

Places like New Zealand has everything America has, it’s just packed into one small country, and doesn’t take as long to go and see it all.

That’s really the only difference :)

I still want to see Colorado, and also some rural landscapes in the midwest. I’m not sure when I’ll get back!

Eldorado…that sounds a mix of Western and Mexican!

Every country has its gems..I discovered some while exploring WITH the friend I hosted over last fall – she made me see my country with v.different eyes.

It’s beautiful! and..MORE pics?

Colorado is beautiful You should also check out Yellowstone National Park, it is mind blowingly beautiful. I plan to return there soon. One day was not enough for me, back then, when I took a road trip out west. We’re talking about the Earth being alive, literally. Like, a small sulfur lake that is bubbling and smells like rotten eggs. ;)
