And now for the final installment of the Saga that was Summer Vacation! Day 6. We originally had planned one of our outings this day but were glad we had shuffled it to another. This mama had a lot of packing up and cleaning to do in the condo before we took off back to Nebraska. So we laid low but did get in one more gander around Vail and most importantly one more of those AWESOME public bus rides!

Summer Vacation – Colorado Day 5 Part I

On Day 5 we headed out of Vail once again to explore Independence Pass. This road is “the highest paved crossing of the Continental Divide in the U.S.” Once again I was very very very glad I was not driving. It was a breathtaking view all along this highway and a couple times it was quite literally breathtaking. Once my knees actually got weak.

Summer Vacation – Colorado Day 4 Part III

And this is my dear friend Brenda. You might recognize her from my epic and moving “Love Story.” I was trying to think of how long Brenda and I have been friends and just where our friendship began.

She and I grew up in the same church so we’d known each other in our teens but didn’t start a real deal friendship until after high school. You know you have a good friend when you can not remember at all the first time you clicked and the rest became history. I just know that Brenda and I were pretty much attached at the hip for a solid 10 years, the entirety of my 20s.

We’ve been through thick and thin together and then some. So this day was a little like Peaches and Herb and a lot like pie.


I’ll let you decide which of us is Peaches and which is Herb. Maybe this picture will help:
