Our Trip to Colorado

We spent 7 lovely days in Colorado last week.  It had been too long since I've been to Colorado this time of year.  The weather was perfect and everything was beautiful!  We stayed in Frisco and ventured to Vail and Breckenridge for some exploring.  It was a great week full of gorgeous scenery, relaxing outdoors, and great food.  The perfect vacation!

Frisco, CO


Arapahoe Basin was still open for skiing!

Vail, CO

We stopped for a delicious crepe while in Breckenridge



We ate breakfast at Butterhorn Bakery & Cafe in Frisco a couple times.
Their 'Eggy Bread' topped with fruit was amazing!


We had a great time!

Lovely! I lived in Keystone for 5 years and worked for Keystone Resort for 10 years. The summers are why I stayed in the mountains for so long. After months and months of snow it would get a little stir crazy...lol....

Frisco and Breckenridge are one of my favorite places....

Did you know that the Walmart scene in the movie Christmas Vacation was filmed at the Frisco Walmart?

Glad to hear you had a relaxing beautiful vacation....

So Jealous! It's 100 degrees here in Texas. We are going to Fun Valley Colorado in August and I can't wait! Were we are going is near Pagosa Springs. My Aunt and Uncle lived in Colorado when I was growing up and it's my absolute favorite state (besides Texas)!
