On Top of Vail Mountain

Once my Dad and Torchy arrived, we ramped up the intentional activity scale. On my day off, we headed up to the top of Vail mountain right as they opened. Here are some photos:

Generally speaking, I'm not a big fan of gondolas.
But I worked on getting over that for the cause.

And to be fair, the payoff is pretty good.

We took a very short hike around the top.

Then we posed for photos.

A family pose.
With plenty of evidence I've got to get some weight off.
Ugh.

Even the flowers posed.
There were very few flowers though, it being so dry.

Then we found the pony rides.

On top of the mountain, there is a restaurant, pony rides, a jumping bungee thing and maybe a couple of other things. There are more activities on top of the Breckenridge mountain, which I'll show you another day. Anyway, LM wanted to ride the pony right off. So, Grandpa went in and bought him a ticket right off.

There was as small pony and then an even smaller one.

Of course, LM wanted to ride the BIG one.

No helmet this time, but he held on really well.

And the video, with my expert commentary included.

It was a beautiful day on top of the mountain. We went down after a bit and drove a long way for some pizza. But, that's another story. 

See you soon.
