Cody. New York roots, currently living in Colorado and trying to build something good for myself.
Last night, went way up to the mountains after work, went to a rooftop party to watch fireworks, went camping in a beautiful place with friends, woke up at 4 am and watched a beautiful sunrise from the tent. And tomorrow-ish, a visit from New York friends!
I’m falling more and more in love with Colorado every day.
I hiked two more 14ers this week with a new friend
And I’m spending the 4th of July camping and watching fireworks in the mountains with my most intense friend-crushes ever.
I’ve reached every short term goal I set for myself before leaving New York.
It’s a really amazing feeling.
Today was amazing. Absolutely amazing. Took a day trip to Fort Collins, went tubing down the Poudre River with some amazing friends and handled the rapids like a champ, drank some wine riverside and enjoyed a beautiful sunset drive home with good company and good music and the most amazing scenery. This is what I moved to Colorado for. And I’m JUST SO HAPPY.
In the last week I went camping and hiking in beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park
Climbed my first 14er that included a lot of off trail hiking and scaling a really seriously steep gully
Took an hour long nap with a really good friend on the SUMMIT of said 14er in perfect weather with the most amazing scenery around us
Ate a million delicious meals, toured some really cool spots in the city, bar hopped to every gay venue in Denver, partied harder than I have in years, and did all of it with an absolutely amazing group of new friends who have already become really important to me, and who have proven to be some of the best people I’ve ever been lucky enough to grow close to
And in the next few days we have our weekly karaoke work party and I’m going whitewater rafting through the Rocky Mountains with a really great friend
I think this is going to be an amazing summer.

This was one of the best days of my life.
