breakfast of champions.

I’m not known for my cooking prowess, but these tasty morsels just might negate that fact. And yes, I may have had one, ok two, for breakfast this morning. Don’t judge.

CAUTION, HIGH ALPINE ENVIRONMENT! SNOWY, ICY CONDITIONS MAY (hem hem…DO) EXIST!

Confession. I am ready for summer. 

I know, I know, we LIVE for pow days out here in the High Country. “Powder Hounds” run rampant on days forecasted to “nuke”. “Weekend Warriors” elect to sit for hours in traffic on I70, just to “huck” themselves off the cliffs in Vail’s Back Bowls. Heck, even I let out a “whoop!” or two when shredding some gnarly pow pow.

But there comes a time when even high country inhabitants crave the radiant mountain sun, the blues, greens, oranges, and pinks of the wildflowers, long hikes up neighboring 14ers, babbling mountain brooks, bike rides to the Dillon Farmers Market, dock jumping along the shores of Lake Dillon, camping at local gems like “the residence”, a delightfully cold Rum Runner at the Tiki Bar, flowy sundresses (ok, ok, that might just be me…), post-work sunset strolls, and breakfast/lunch/dinner on the deck. 

Therefore, Abbey and I celebrated everyone else’s first day of spring (let’s face it…Summit tends to skip spring and jump right into summer), by taking a meandering hike up Deer Creek.

Blue bird skies, crunchy white snow, 37°, chirping birds, and breathtaking panoramas in every direction.

I sweated, Abbey panted, we shared some banana chips, and we then thanked Mother Nature for allowing us to catch a glimpse of Spring.
