Final Views & Scenes From Breckenridge

My original intentions were to take you with us on a day-by-day recap of our trip to Breckenridge.  However, while trying desperately to fall into a deep sleep last night, I had an epiphany.

Who else cares what we did?

So, with that revelation and I must admit it was not a painless one, I will instead share some of my favorite pictures (with or without explanation) because they evoke great memories for me.

An open ride above the treetops to Peak 8.
 The views from this ride were amazing!
Our nephew and some of his family at the top!

One of my favorite pictures!
At the top, we took a short hike and the two YOUNGEST guys decided to go even further.
This is using my new zoom lens.
I just never tired of these views!
 Storm clouds on the mountain top.  Spiritually this happens sometimes as well.
Mom and daughter snuggled as the temps began to drop.

Early morning sunrise on an empty Main Street.

Vail Village
 Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, Vail, Co.

This group of buckaroos awaiting their horses for the trail ride
Giving the horses a much needed rest since the trail was quite muddy.
 Six-year old Layne got riding lessons before the ride, so he was well qualified to be our leader.
 The air was fresh and the views amazing from this height.
  One day I took my own personally directed driving tour above Breckenridge and found some beautiful scenes.
 This view is from one of the balconies in the lodge shown above right.  Peak 8 can be seen far in the distance.

And this is the most amazing group of folks with whom we had the privilege of spending a week. Thank you again Wyant Family for inviting us to share a most memorable week with you.

Just a view scenes in southern Colorado on our way home

We got home to find a family of doves, un-threatened by the fake snake meant to keep them away, had moved in and made themselves quite at home.
I do hope you enjoyed seeing a few highlights of our recent trip.
Now, I have a few days to get ready for Trip #2.
