Breckenridge, Colorado USA 2005

A gorgeous, snowy, rocky mountain ski village in winter, we took an off season summer family trip to Breckenridge, Colorado USA in August 2005.

We rode some ski lifts just to see the mountain views. We did tourist stuff - group hummer ride up to the top of the continental divide, white water rafting and a horse trek at the base of a ski hill.  Shane and I took in a spa massage, games at a nearby pool club and bit of exploring village shopping. Here are a few pictures from our trip.
