We lost our Sectional Semifinal contest last Thursday and our baseball season came to abrupt halt. The very next morning I was driving from P-town to Breckenridge. I found it difficult not to replay that last game over and over in my head while on the fourteen hour trek west, but my wife is an excellent road trip companion.
We arrived at a rental home on Saturday and it was incredible. It easily slept nineteen. Yes, nineteen. This was a cousins trip so to speak. My wife's sister and three cousins, and their spouses and children, were all in attendance. There were eight bathrooms and three kitchens. The place really met out needs and it was only about a quarter mile walk from downtown Breckenridge.
Breckenridge in June? Yep, it looks like this:
There's still plenty to do during the summer months. I did a bunch of hiking, although it took some getting used to the elevation. There were also mountain bike trails which look very exciting, but the one cousin who I thought would be game wasn't interested at all. Bummer.
Touristy and artsy. The below picture shows and "umbrella ball" exhibit that was set up downtown.
Laura and I tried to do our first "fourteener."
We did make it past the 13,000 foot mark, which made me pretty happy. We also ran into this guy during our decent.
Overall, it was a solid trip with four other families from my wife's side and a nice way to start my summer break.
