Birthday in the Mountains

Mom and I wore ourselves out this weekend as we celebrated mine and the country's birthday in the mountains around Breckenridge. This must be the bicycle capitol of the world. Every other car had either a full or empty bike rack. So we joined right in and on my birthday we went to the required Art Festival had lunch at a sidewalk cafe then went biking. We tackled Dillon Lake and biked all the way around, a total of 26 miles. Mom was incredible, tackling the whole thing with a healing broken arm and without a complaint - very impressive.
We were a little sore so on the country's birthday we watched the required small town 4th of July parade and then we went hiking into fields of wild flowers and amazing mountain vistas. When we got home we had a dinner of brats, watermelon, and potato salad. It was a perfect weekend.

Yes it was the perfect weekend. We even missed the rain. You know how to do the 3rd and 4th of July. Happy 58 mr in great shape.

You look so rugged and awesome in all these pictures. Like straight out of a REI magazine.

What a beautiful place! Those pics are super impressive. I'm very jealous of those singletrack trails. I can't wait till we go biking again!
