Two weeks ago, we went on a wild, wintry #FathomTakeover road trip with photographer and Instagrammer Adria Ellis. She started off at the 2015 FIS Alpine World Championships in Vail, Colorado, and drove down Highway 285 to Santa Fe, New Mexico. We loved the trip so much, we're bringing you a full recap along with a few bonus shots! 

COLORADO – There's nothing I love more than winter, snow, and a good road trip. I used to live in Crested Butte, Colorado, and have driven Highway 285 too many times to count. I always see new things and am taken by the beauty of the land: high desert, open plains, windy canyons, and Rocky Mountains. Seeing friends, discovering new places, and enjoying the freedom of driving speaks to me. I hope you enjoy the ride. Check out my Instagram feed to see where I'm headed next.
