A scoot up the road to Breckenridge was in order today. A short ride, warm-ish in the still air. Breckenridge was there, just as it was during my snow skiing years, another lifetime. But A river was noted! And a river walk! All snow and ice in the winter, I do not remember it.
Definitely a resort and tourist destination. The crowd was definitely young, many young families. A Mexican lunch was enjoyed, a duck quesadilla. The description had other adjectives of course, but after taking time to grab a milk shake while strolling through town I forgot them. The quesadilla was tasty but it had an after glow as it sat a little heavily on my stomach. Duck. I remember, now. But the short day trip was enjoyed nonetheless.
I took a survey on a computer. For taking it I got to spin a wheel of fortune for a prize. I told the lady I wanted the cap. I spun. She gave me a Breckenridge cap. I think my level 2 spin was probably good for a plastic necklace. I did not win the 4-night free vacation in a local resort. The instructions for the survey implied there were all kinds of question choices coming. I was only asked for name, phone, zip, salary range and age range. When I entered 65+, it said goodbye and thanks. But I was given my free hat.
Browsing a real estate broker window, I saw a price of several million, and though it was for the whole town. But upon closer reading it was a single residence. I then lost interest.
Here are a couple of shots of Blue River running through the town, along the river walk. Tourist peeps and dogs were enjoying it.
A P.S. to Bob S. – There are mountain trails and mountain gals in Summit County just waiting for you! But the cute freckled red head young lady might have been a little too young, so I did not give her your phone number. A simple goog to “summit county mountain bike trails” should give you plenty reading.Tags: Breckenridge CO, Summit County CO
