My husband surprised me on my birthday with a trip to beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado. We had never been to Breckenridge and to be totally honest, I wasn’t 100% sure where Breckenridge was located. We have some very generous and caring friends that let us stay at their condo for the weekend. We stayed two nights in lovely Breckenridge and even though there are 101 things to do in Breckenridge we did a whole lot of nothing and it was absolutely wonderful. We ate, walked around Breckenridge, took our dog to the dog park, took our Christmas picture, took naps, and drank some wine. I managed to take some pictures while we were in Breckenridge. I can’t wait to go back and enjoy all of Breckenridge‘s splendid glory! Thank you G.P., S.M., and B.L.P. for our amazing weekend.When we pulled up to the condo on Friday this fox was sitting below the balcony. I put my longer lens on my camera to get a clear picture of the fox. It didn’t even flinch when I was taking its picture. It is almost as if the fox is greeting us. Welcome to Breckenridge! Enjoy your stay.This is the view walking into town. Majestic beauty!This picture gives a nice view of the mountain range.This coffee shop is wonderful. We got coffee here on Saturday and Sunday morning.A boulder in the Blue River with an intriguing past.The sky was so beautiful and blue and the Colorado flag was flowing perfectly in the wind.Breckenridge is a glorious town. I forgot to mention that we did stop by the Breckenridge Distillery Tasting Room . It is located at 137 Main Street in downtown Breckenridge. We tried complimentary tastings of Bourbon Whiskey and Vodka. It was so good we ended up buying a bottle of Breckenridge Vodka.
Did you know that in 1898 “The Big Snow” comes to Breckenridge? Snow falls everyday from November through February, forcing residents to dig tunnels to travel through town and stopping all trains from visiting Breckenridge for months.
