Skiing in Colorado

I am a little late with this post. Maybe it will help you to cool down in this summer heat.

Judd and I took a trip in February 2009 to Denver, Colorado to visit our friends from graduate school, Adrienne and Scott Burton. They were amazing hosts. They took us to Keystone and Breckenridge to ski. It was freezing, scary, fun, and breathtaking all at the same time. This trip was the first time that Judd and I had ever snow skied. Needless to say the first day was spent mostly in the snow rather than on it. Thanks for your patient teaching Adrienne and Scott.

We also spent some time in downtown Denver, at Red Rocks Amphitheater, and we drove through Golden (Where all the beer is brewed). We officially tapped the Rockies. Ha. See photos below.

De-frosting in the lodge at Keystone. It snowed hard on us all day!

Second Day: Judd and Abby outside of our Condo (Look at that view!)
