Lillian & Bob at the White River National Forest just north of Camp Hale where the 10th Mountain Infantry trains.
Warmimg up by the fireplace at Nova's Lodge.
That's Bob and Tucker the tour guide dog.
Lillian ready to order at the Campo Fiori Restaurant in Vail Village. Very nicely decorated and great food. The server could have been better but because it's such a nice place and the food is so great, the place is very busy.
Dog Sledding in -5 degree weather and Loving it! Click on image to see video of us, the dogs and our driver, Drew. Check out Drew's mustache.
We took a ride on this Snow Cat. Lots of fun. Our driver was Steve, the owner of NOVA Expeditions. He is a true gentleman. Though the Snow Cat can sit up to 12 people we were the only ones on the ride. Along with us came Steve's dog Tucker who had a lot fun and we enjoyed tremendously. We went up to about 10,000 feet in elevation through blinding snow in warm comfort.
Believe it or not, this is Lillian under all those winter clothes. Click on image to see a snow fight.
All of Vail Village is decorated for Christmas. There is no car traffic and the roads are heated to melt the snow and ice.
