Driving to Vail
Super excited to be going to Vail!
Driving on a snowy I-70 was so much fun!
More I-70 beauty
The snow-covered trees were so beautiful.
Possibly our favorite spot on I-70
Vail was a life size winter wonderland. It truly looked like a little fantasy world – cobblestone walkways, gorgeous snow-covered trees, and ski slopes descending right into the village.

The covered bridge on the way to Gondola 1

On the Eagle Bahn Gondola – such an amazing experience!
The colors…this place didn’t even seem real! It was like a fantasy land!
Almost to the top!
On top of the mountain
It was around fifteen below at the top…but we couldn’t stop gazing!
The beauty was unreal!
The sky kept changing its hues as we stood on top of the mountain. It was so amazing to watch.
One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever stood!
We went inside to thaw out and then walked back out to this. There are no words…
Couldn’t have asked for a more radiant sunset.
The iPhone doesn’t quite capture the sunset like the Nikon, but still…
Ice skating rink in Lionshead
Ready to go snow tubing!
Andrew said I looked like a ninja!
Ready to snow tube!
After snow tubing at Copper Mountain
About to go on a dinner sleigh ride!
The mules were so beautiful!
Hot chocolate and good ole folk singing as we waited on dinner. This was SUCH a great experience! This guy could sing just like Johnny Cash.
With our mules after dinner 🙂
Our mules’ names were Ruth and Boaz!
Bundled up for our zero degree day!
Union Station in downtown Denver was so pretty!

Check out that temp! Definitely the coldest temp I’ve ever experienced!
