Colorado is home to adventure. Right? Skiing, Snowboarding, Zip lining, Fly Fishing, Hot Air Ballooning, Hang Gliding, and we're just getting started.
Some of the aforementioned activities are just too damn exhausting and cost prohibitive so I accidentally stumbled upon an affordable and exhilarating activity.
Flying. Yes, Flying 30,000 feet above scenic mountains.
I discovered one of the most glorious travel adventures and it was so unexpected. The best experiences are the one's where expectations are set low and something just dashes your expectations to smithereens (but in a good way)
I have business and family in the 4 corners area (Aztec, Durango, Farmington) so in lieu of driving I jumped on a Boutique Air flight originating in Denver destined for Cortez Colorado.
The name Boutique is remarkably fitting or apt. They treat you like you're a corporate rockstar or celebrity.
The short flight from Denver to Cortez jets through picturesque mountains. The service at the check in and at the gate was astounding in contrast to other flight experiences where the the treatment seems impersonal.
Loving Boutique Air for affordability, quality, safety, service, scenery & efficiency.
