First, before we went up the mountain,
I caught a couple cute ones of the boy, playing on the back patio.
OK, on up in the gondola.
Those dang pine bark beetles had been here, too.
Then up on the chair lift.
I wasn't a big proponent of the chair lift ride. I've got a pretty healthy phobia of heights, and this thing was open air. Also, as we went up the mountain, it was windier and colder on that lift. But, I persevered on behalf of the group. And, it was very pretty on top, so I'm glad I did.
You can see the rain coming here, and Dad pointing out something interesting.
There was some haze in the air, from the wildfires.
LM was checking out the closed restaurant.
Apparently, it's only open in the winter.
LM and I missed the "green" memo on this date.
LM and Daddy playing around.
The ride back down was even WINDIER and COLDER.
That's Dad and Torchy behind us.
We got on first so I could get a photo of them on the lift, as they were ahead of us on the way there. But, the guy at the top was making three empty seats go by before he loaded another one. So, they were WAY back there. And I want you to know I risked life and limb anyway to turn around and take this photo, which nearly scared me to an early death. But it all turned out OK. Ahem.
There is this beautiful little babbling brook under the ski lift.
Something you would never see in the winter!
There is a pretty good rendering of the activity area on the mountain.
There is a lot of stuff, like I said!
Since we were three cars ahead, though, I could catch them getting off!
The old people get confused sometimes.
For a second, they thought it was Six Flags.
They did a good job though!
The green ones and LM.
That rain was getting closer, so we headed on down the gondola too.
This sign amused me.
Me and my Daddy. I'm the one with the nutso smile.
What is that all about?
Now that's a cute kid.
I'm sure here, he was saying, "Daddy, LM's leaning back."
Then he went sans glasses, briefly.
Because glasses are necessary. And cool.
We liked Breckenridge Mountain, we did.
See you soon.
