The Mountains are calling and we must go!
Vail Valley will always hold a special place in our heart. We are not avid skiers, but Summer, Fall and Spring in the mountains had us stick around for 5 full years! We loved every minute of mountain living. The concerts, the hiking, the restaurant scene, the small town feel...
This trip was largely about reuniting with friends and relaxing so we did not have too many adventures lined up but there were a few things we wanted to do again. Highest on the list was taking our kids on one of our favorite hikes... Hanging Lake!
Suspended on the edge of Glenwood Canyon's cliffs, the clear turquoise lake and the waterfalls that spill into it are a breathtaking sight after the rigorous uphill climb. In true Colorado fashion, we had sunshine, rain and even a pretty significant hail storm which had us hiding for cover under trees on the way down. The kids were all troopers and we all deserved our Moes BBQ in Eagle once we were done (One not to miss.. the best BBQ Ever)
