This has been the hottest summer I have ever lived through! Growing up in Texas we expect summer to be hot, but 76 days (and counting) of 100+ degree days has just been unrelenting! I'm so glad we had planned an escaped to Colorado! It was just what we needed!
Our first stop was Vail, CO. We had such a beautiful view from our room and the constant droll of the river made it easy to relax.
There was a nice paved walking path that connected all the different parts of Vail.
Lions Head is one of the places that is close by. This is a beautiful little place with lots of shops, restaurants and places to sit and enjoy the views. The place where Wade is standing is actually an ice skating rink in the winter time! So fun!
The temps in Vail were in the high 70's low 80's and the trees and flowers loved that as much as us!
