Just got back from the annual Field Service Meeting and took these photos. I also went to the Detroit Zoo and have some photos from there, but I have a special post that I am going to do for that, requiring scanning in some photos from long ago as well as new ones.

This is the view from my balcony at Beaver Run in Breckinridge. Wonderful rainbow after a light afternoon rain. This is a great town and I'd love to live here! I must say though, for a flatlander, 9500 ft above sea level took some getting used to. It's almost twice as high as Denver.
This is one of the ski resorts in Vail, from the road.
We took a Jeep tour up into the mountains in Vail, going up to 12,000 feet.

Looking back down the trail we drove up. We drove through some really hairy stuff, rocky streambeds, deep rivers, etc. That Jeep 4.0L straight six and rugged suspension took a real pounding and didn't flinch! Toledo born, rockies tested, Jimmy!

Base camp above the tree line, looking in the other direction...

" I reached out, and touched the face of God..."
This shot in at the beginning of the trail back down. Breathtaking panoramas.
