Who would have thought that Colorado would still have a few metres of snow left at the end of April. Vail Pass Summit is the spot, albeit there are dozens of ski hills in the area, that should have tipped us off. Anyway, we enjoyed going from the Desert of Utah one day, to the Winter Wonderland of Colorado the next.
Here is the proof: we are not over exaggerating. The temperature was a chilling 3 C degrees.
Any Skier’s reading may want to consider a visit to Vail, Colorado next Winter. I can’t even imagine how much snow they would have in January or February. We did see the Ski runs, and although the mountain appeared closed for the season, we could not see any dirt! Actually we could hardly see the trees, that is how much snow they still have. Just if Whistler could say the same.
We made it over the summit, and into Denver. We figured we should find some beer.
We found Coors Field and figured there should be some beer nearby somewhere……
If there was say, an RV park or similar across the street, we
could would have stayed longer and sampled more of the beer. But we all know beers and driving do not mix, so we settled on the tasting flight. These glasses are very small, about 3 ounces each.
During our time in the South last year we fell in love with Green Tomatoes, so when we saw it on the menu, it was an easy decision. The Contents: Fried Green Tomatoes, Mozzarella Cheese, Fresh Basil, Sprouts and Arugula. The Verdict: Gold Medal, the beer earned a Participation ribbon. (Why can’t Americans make good beer!) Some flavour would be nice.
Hmmmmm, I wonder where we are going?
