Ajay and Jacob are explorers, in what little spare time they have. They’re both from Indiana. They met it Copenhagen. They’ve lived in Massachusetts, New York and Colorado. And they’ll soon be relocating to Chicago. So we wanted to take them somewhere new, making a Kenosha Pass engagement session the perfect solution!
On their explorations, one of their favorite pastimes is checking out small mountain town coffee joints, which made the Cutthroat Cafe in Bailey the perfect place to fuel up. We got to know more about their travels and their studies over coffee and a late breakfast while the winter sun warmed us through the window. Before a food coma hit, we decided we should head out to Kenosha Pass.
Now, most people go to Kenosha Pass in September. It’s beautiful in the fall, with bright yellow aspen lighting up the hillside. But it’s also far too crowded for my tastes (and anyway, Kenosha, I think you’re pretty all year long!). I’ve always loved the simple, abstract beauty of bare aspen trees, especially when the low-hanging sun throws their shadows across the snow. And this was precisely what we were rewarded with last weekend.
Equipped with the best hats and scarves, we trekked through the snow that was barely a skiff in some places and knee-deep in others. Ajay and Jacob, true to their exploratory nature, had no problem with anything we asked them to do, from running through the snow to perching on the edge of a precarious ice shelf near a freezing cold river.
Ajay and Jacob, thank you for agreeing to every crazy thing we suggested and for an all-around enjoyable day. We can’t wait for your party in October!
