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:

Summer Vacation – Colorado Day 4 Part II

Later in the afternoon of day 4 we loaded up and drove to Frisco, only about 30 minutes away from Vail. This was not a stop we had on our itinerary when we had planned our Colorado trip but something pretty amazing happened to cause us to add this outing.

About two days into the trip I received a message on Facebook from one of my oldest friends. She just happened to login to Facebook that day, something she doesn’t do very often, and saw my posts about being in Vail. She couldn’t believe it, she contacted me to let me know we were in her neck of the woods and wanted to see us.

I couldn’t believe it either. We had lost contact some years ago and now she was almost just around the corner!

She told us we could meet up at the Marina in Frisco to do some paddle boarding and playing in the sand.
