Colorado in the summer

20120730-190032.jpgI just got back from visiting my parents and brother in Colorado. Spent six days between Denver and Breckenridge and it wasn’t nearly enough time to do all the things I wanted to do. Was hoping to get to Aspen and Boulder to see friends. Definitely next time. Check out some iPhone photos I snapped from my recent adventure.

20120730-190207.jpgOne morning we walked downtown to take a gondola ride. The gondola goes up Peak 8 with a stop in Cucumber Gulch and another right before Peak 8 base.

20120730-190524.jpgSome bad weather put a damper on our biking trip though.

20120730-190534.jpgOn our last day in mountains, we drove over to the Sapphire Point Overlook at Lake Dillon. Check out these gorgeous views!

20120730-190638.jpgMy bro lives in downtown Denver, so naturally while visiting I had to get a glimpse of the beloved Denver Post.
