Hello everyone! Our time spent in beautiful Colorado brough to mind the old John Denver song. Colorado is truly one of the most gorgeous states that I've ever visited! Right now we are driving across Nebraska, and are bored out of our gourds! We were spoiled with such stunnning scenery for the past 11 days. And to put it politely, there is not a whole lot to see in the corn husker state! I took so many photos while we were in Colorado, that I'll share more in future posts.
We passed thru Vail on the way there, climbing in our motor home to over 11,000 feet! Adjusting to the altitude was a bit challenging. I found myself easily out of breath, headachy, and very thirsty! But, I loved the time we spent there, and can hardly wait to return!
No recession going on here!
We liked Breckenridge much better. Even though it was a very popular ski resort, it was much more laid back. And this is the view we had from our campground!
Well, we saw another camper there, who suggested that we walk to the clubhouse and see if there was anyone there that could help us. Tiger Run was a very "fancy-schmancy" campground, complete with an indoor pool and hot tub, tennis courts, and more. We normally stay at pretty low key places like state parks, but thought it would be a nice treat to stay here, especially since there was no where else to camp in the area. Hubby walked into the pool area, and started chatting with an Australian guy who was using the hot tub. He told hubby that he owned two lots in the campground (each spot is individually owned and rented out), and we were welcome to use his extra spot for a night or two! When we tried to pay him, he refused! I told hubby that he was our Aussie Angel! So, we were both very, very happy and much relieved!
Have you ever seen such a funny looking vehicle? This hummer, with it's own "greenhouse", belonged to a fellow camper.
Breckenridge was full of quaint and historic buildings like this. Love the pretty gingerbread trim on this cute old house turned shop!
The ski lifts were right in town! I bet it's just gorgeous here in the winter!
Have a great weekend!
