Leave no Trace and Colorado Elopement Locations

Leave no Trace absolutely needs to be followed when you are planning for an elopement out in nature. The best places to elope in Colorado are GORGEOUS and we need to do everything we can to keep it that way. While also doing what we can to keep being allowed to use these spots for things like this. For those that don’t know what this is, LNT is these seven principles.

  • Plan ahead and prepare.

  • Travel and camp on durable surfaces.

  • Dispose of waste properly.

  • Leave what you find.

  • Minimize campfire impacts (be careful with fire).

  • Respect wildlife.

  • Be considerate of other visitors.

This means that you cannot bring in tons of people who will make an impact on the land that you are using. You must pack in and pack out everything. Waste needs to be disposed of properly. Have you ever heard the saying ‘Take only photos, leave only footprints?’ That really is the goal when planning any sort of Elopement. You need to have minimal impact on the land and respect for the others that will also be in the area Utlizing that spot.
