Day four in Evergreen, CO

NOTE: "This post is better when viewed with a cup of coffee in hand." - Matt

 

This was our last full day in Colorado. And it was perfect. We skied at Winter Park to avoid the ridiculous resort/touristy traffic and craziness in Breckenridge, Keystone, etc. Best decision. The views were rockin headed to Winter Park...and a bit scary at times...but photos were taken and that was alllll part of the plan:)

A mine on the side of the road. The only pretty one. Rest were boring brown.

Pic out the front window. We're finally seeing the snow!Mine_Lauryn Byrdy Photography_Columbus Ohio Travel Photography

And just like that, you're in a blizzard. And this was the scary part. To the right is a cliff. And no guard rail. But we'd prefer this route over Loveland Pass ANY DAY! Go read about Loveland Pass.

Then it stops every so often and looks like this. Not kidding. Gorgeous.

This is pretty cool. Ever heard of Mary Jane? This is part of it...Olympic team trains here. It's straight down hill. See the little people near the top?

Then we skied. Half day. We had plans that night. Plans to sleep and eat...because our bodies hated us by this point:)

Goodbye Winter Park!

Matt not too excited about driving home. Not a long drive. Just scary at times for us Ohio drivers.

And this was me the entire day. Not as much previous days but I'm wishing I had. I feel like we don't have nearly enough pics of the good stuff. This is me taking the shot you see below it.
