Road Trip! Colorado, We Love You!By Hippy Chic Designs | July 31, 2016
Wow, what an amazing place! This trip had the Hippy Chicks in awe of the gorgeous mountains and landscape of Colorado, which both of us had only seen covered in snow before!
Along with catching up with Dale’s longtime friends and family, the reason we travelled so far was to participate in the annual Carbondale Mountain Fair. This is a quaint town about 30 minutes outside of Aspen, and let me tell you, Carbondale knows how to put on a fair!
When the three full days of live music, fair games, food and contests opened with a drum circle, we knew this would be an amazing experience. The people of Carbondale and surrounding towns fell in love with our HERO and Hippy Chic products, and we fell in love with them! The backdrop of Mount Sopris was the perfect setting for the fair, too!
Firefighter Jeff of Aspen Fire Department even brought us a couple rolls of firehose that had been damaged in some of the brush fires just days before…what an awesome donation of green and red firehose! Which products do you see on our site made of this Aspen hose? Mahalo Hero Jeff!
We also had the opportunity to visit the Basalt Fire Station and Firefighter Kevin was kind enough to give us a tour (and entertain our excitement over the AWESOME firehose they have) until the team was called out to a car fire. Thanks Hero Kevin!
All in all, this was an amazing trip and we hope to return next year!
