Colorado Springs man ‘walks 500 miles’ to propose to girlfriend in Utah


PROVO, Utah — Now, this may be one of the most epic proposals we’ve seen so far!

A Colorado Springs man recently proposed to his girlfriend in Utah by getting a little creative with the song “I’m Gonna Be” by The Proclaimers.

Michael Baker first appears in the video and says, “I wish I could be there with you. I know that we’ve been apart for a while, I know that I’ll get to see you soon.”

But what Tracie didn’t know was how soon that meeting would be!

With the help of some creative editing, Baker appears to have traveled 500 miles, with clips in the video showing him climbing Pikes Peak and trekking through snow. However, thanks to the magic of editing, he really only traveled 150 miles in Colorado to capture the footage, according to ABC News.

“This is how I proposed to the love of my life! She was taking a CNA certification course in Provo, UT. Upon completion she was planning to fly out to Colorado, where I was, to spend some time with me. Little did she know, I had other plans,” Michael said in the caption to his video.

Of course, she said yes!
