Buena Vista, Colorado and Mount Princeton Hot Springs | Girls’ Trip

I am beyond blessed to be so close to my mom, sisters and mother-in-law. How unusual (and awesome) is it that we went on a girls’ weekend trip together and everyone had a blast! Here’s how it happened… my husband had some vacation time that he was going to lose if he didn’t use it so he planned a backpacking trip to Colorado with his dad, brother and my dad. Us girls decided we would tag along for at least the first couple days until we had to get back for work and it spiraled into heading to the Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort (which just so happens to be one of my favorite places) for the weekend so we didn’t totally miss out on the adventure part of the trip! Needless to say, I did not have my camera out all weekend because I was busy enjoying family time… but I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos at the end of the trip 🙂

Three out of four of us happened to be doing Whole 30 while we were there so we had to get pretty creative with our food options, but we made it work! Here are the places we went; I would definitely recommend all three and they are all within walking distance! 

  • House Rock Kitchen – Hands-down my favorite restaurant in the town (just be prepared to pay close to $20 per person after tip)
  • Simple Eatery & Spoon it Up – Another amazing option. You can also get baked goods and/or outdoor gear and clothing items here as well! 
  • Buena Vista Roastery Cafe – Definitely my favorite coffee shop in the area – the coconut milk latte is out-of-this-world good in the rare case you are on Whole 30 too
