My family spent the end of the summer and early fall in Breckenridge, at Briar Rose Lodge. We had a marvelous time! We attended the USA Pro Challenge cycling event, where we saw up close many riders that had just participated in the Tour de France. We also went to the PRCA ProRodeo where we saw the cowboys and cowgirls compete in some amazing events. We rode up the BreckConnect on numerous occasions to enjoy the activities up the mountain, the hiking and the view. Our mine tour was also a pleasure. Finally, we spent several days visiting a nearby National Park and Monument - Rocky Mountain and Dinosaur.
