David and I decided that we
wanted to escape for a day and explore
the west side of the front range to celebrate our
|David cannot take a trip without snacks|
and I must admit that I was more than willing.
This junk food really tasted good
because I have been dieting lately.
|Much of the land was very flat driving|
to Breckenridge. We found
this field filled with

was Alma. The 10,578 on the sign is definitely
not the population, but the altitude.
|Not a Wal-Mart in sight, but they didn't need one.|
|What captivated me most about|
Breckenridge was their beautiful
flowers. I will do a separate post
to allow you to see the beauty.
|Hanging baskets everywhere.|
|We ate lunch at this little hole in the wall.|
David loves breakfasts and he can
probably count on one hand the number
of really good breakfasts I have made
him in our 40 years of marriage.
|It was a beautiful day.|
|The reason this is a little cloudy is because|
I was taking the picture through the plexiglass
of the gondola. We went to the area where
the ski lifts take over transporting skiers up the
mountain in the winter.
|No, this is not us.|
The guys who were tubing were more
than willing to get their picture
taken. I'm sure they didn't
realize they would be featured
on a blog.
|We travelled on to Aspen and I have to admit that I was|
not enamored. It is block after block of HUGE
hotels. Definitely a tourist town.
Some of the homes were quite nice though.
|Isn't this a carefree statue?|
|The drive to Golden was gorgeous.|
We went through several tunnels.
We found a Railroad museum in Golden
that David wants to take the grandsons and sons to.
|We finished out the day with|
delicious Mexican food.
What a special day to spend with my best friend.
