   Fourth of July Weekend in the Rockies...

Images from the Fourth of July Weekend which featured a visit from Florida friends Kevin and Colleen and their two children. Their visit included lots of hiking in Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park and was capped off with a spectacular 4th of July in Vail and Breckenridge as shown below.

There is no better place to spend Fourth of July than in Vail and Breckenridge. It is an all American scene with friendly people and a great atmosphere. There is wonderful music and parades, the sights and sounds of children frolicking in the creek, concert side picnics with gorgeous mountain backdrops and tons of classic Colorado sunshine. This year we rented a town home complete with a private hot tub and everyone had a great time.
