Road Trip To Leadville With My Mom To See Fall Foliage, Soak in Hot Springs, and Ride Scenic Trains!
With my mom coming to town for only a few days, I wanted us to have a full itinerary so that she could really see all of the highlights of the place I now call home!
After brunch, we took some time to relax and get all dolled up for our most girly event of the weekend. Once we were ready, we drove to Boulder to visit the Dushanbe Tea House!
You can read more about the tea house’s history and about each course, in this separate blog post, HERE!
You can see more photos from our hike on Kenosha Pass, in this separate blog post, HERE and in the YouTube video below!
If you want to read more about our entire 6-hour adventure testing out all the pools in the resort, checkout my Mount Princeton Hot Spring review HERE!
When we finally decided to pry ourselves out of the pools, we grabbed a quick dinner in downtown Buena Vista at Simple Eatery. Then, we hit the road to our Airbnb in the historic mining town of Leadville!

We woke up well-rested and walked to breakfast. We stumbled into The Golden Burro, and embarrassingly, we ordered the same meal: stuffed French toast with a cup of tea.
The entire train ride was cold and windy but wonderful and incredible. You can see more form our ride, in this separate blog post, HERE!
We made it home, and sadly, mom caught her flight back to Texas. We said our goodbyes and neither of us could get over how lovely the weekend had been. It had all fallen into place, the weather was perfect, and the fall leaves were at their peak.
We couldn’t have asked for anything better!
