Welcome back to the What Went Down series, where I make a list of vague events that happened to me while traveling and people who don’t understand the meaning read them for no particular reason.
I lived in Colorado for the last month in a small mountain town called Lyons. There was a river and a small grocery store and coffee shop that baked bread loaves. There was a also a margarita bar that i was unable to indulge in but was very tempting structure to walk by daily. Here’s what went down.

-Walked around town at night and saw all the mountain houses lit up.
-Started Whole30 which I wouldn’t wish on anyone in the world.
