July--Colorado vacation

It has been a good month, with lots of stuff going on. We enjoyed a vacation to Colorado--our first family trip to Colorado during the summer. Everyone loved it, although there was still a lot of talk about snow skiing. We traveled to the ski resort Beaver Creek, where we have gone in January for the past 5 years. This year in January, there wasn't enough snow to ski. We rescheduled our trip to July and it worked out great!

We left behind wretched Iowa weather--high temps near 100 or more each day and humidity that felt like a rain forest. Colorado delivered well, with afternoon highs around 80 degrees and lows in the 40s each night. I love the days of jackets in the morning/evening and t-shirts in the afternoon!

We enjoyed hiking, white water rafting, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, our favorite pizza joint, beautiful scenery in the Rocky Mountains, and time to relax and spend time together as a family.

  1. It looks like you had a great trip. My family and I recently rented a house in Vail, Colorado. It was an amazing trip! We loved the skiing and hiking. Vail vacation home rentals are the way to vacation. I highly recommend this location.
