Breckenridge – Arrival Day
Today we drove from Farmington to Breckenridge, Colorado. We left the hotel around 10:30 am, arrived in “Breck” around 6 pm and had dinner at Bubba Gump’s.
It was a nice drive. We stopped at a little roadside fruit seller to pick up some delicious peaches and gala apples. Mmmmm…is your mouth watering?
Everyone’s tired of sitting in the car, and we’re planning to split the drive home into two days as well. Overall, though it all went smoothly. We had a little rain, but it was no problem. We saw some awesome cloud formations, and a little bit of a rainbow, but it didn’t really show up in the pictures.
The high in Breckenridge today was 70 degrees with a low expected tonight of 38!!! Can’t wait for the cold! It’s a classy little town. I’m not sure I’d want to be here during ski season. I was just looking at a website for the population and it looks like it has just under 3000 permanent residents, but the population balloons to over 30,000 during ski season. Wow! I’m sure it’s not near that right now…maybe 5-10K or so. There are bunches of shops, cafes and galleries downtown, which is just a couple of blocks from where we’re staying. Easily within walking distance for us girls (but probably not mom). We’re looking forward to doing some browsing, and maybe I’ll even do a little Christmas shopping. Any suggestions?
I think this picture of Sharon after our long drive is just hilarious. She looks like a puppy waiting for a treat or something. I promise I’ll post some better ones of her during the trip. I need to remember to post about her upcoming trip to Kuwait. She will be there from November 7th to the first week in April 2009 working for the Red Cross. Pretty cool, huh?
