Colorado Chronicles 2013 – Part V

The last installment about my Colorado vacay.  I cannot believe that I went away almost one month ago.  Time is flying by too fast.

Let me tell you about my weekend in Breck!  Oktoberfest in full swing!!  What was wonderful about where we were situated was that it was within walking distance to Main Street where all the festivities were happening.

Walking off the food, I took in the sights of Breck.

It was pretty awesome to take the FREE gondola ride up to the Breckenridge fun park all the while taking in the views of the Cucumber Gulch Preserve.

And then up even higher (over 11000 ft) via chairlift for even more scenic views.

I absolutely loved the hospitality and atmosphere of the people and places of Breck.  I found it to be a genuinely friendly and beautiful place to spend my time.

Thanks Colorado, yet another terrific trip!!
