Why do I live in Minnesota?

Colorado is so beautiful! I have had a great time and seen some gorgeous vistas during my week here. Occasionally, I have even gotten teary just taking in the view. The mountains are so amazing. It's almost as pretty as Banff, Canada but without the mosquitoes - that's a bonus!

Still snow on July 27!

The view from the chair lift on Copper Mountain.

Even the flowers here are beautiful. These were in the west village of Copper Mountain, which, as you may have guessed is where we spent the day on Friday.

Saturday we took the "water taxi" from Frisco to Dillon. Stunning sights!

Lots of sailboats out. There was a regatta Saturday night and I guess all the sailors were out practicing. What a beautiful ride!

Saturday night we went to a concert at the Dillon Amphitheater. Besides some great country music, yee haw, the surroundings were breathtaking. For a great deal of the time I just sat there saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lord! This is incredible!" Can you tell, I like Colorado?
