Grand Canyons (can see lots from the car and on over looks so can be family geared if you stay away from the difficult trails)

  1. What a great list of ideas! I see lots of places I'd love to visit this summer!

  2. There really are a huge list of ideas and adventures BeadedTail, nice to see you again; it's been awhile.

  3. Nice list! You are indeed a travel expert, Sandy! ;)

  4. Thanks Zach, appreciate your visit and nice comment. Expert? Just have traveled alot so have lots of experiences to share.

  5. These all look like wonderful places to go, but what's a vacation? Oh, yeah. It's that thing our daughter is doing while she spends all our money in Europe.


  6. I just stumbled on your blog and loved seeing Breckenridge on your list. It has been my home for a decade or so and - while most think of it as a winter destination - it sure is a fabulous place to visit in the summertime, especially if you're trying to escape the heat. I'm enjoying the cool Colorado air on my front porch right now!

  7. Oh Susie, we've skied there in younger years; but later we camped and hiked there in the summer. Last year we returned and had a fabulous time. We tried to get a condo there this summer again, but the dates available didn't mesh well with my DD and DH's schedules. So, we're going to Park City. We all were disappointed as we wanted to return to Breckenridge.

  8. Thanks for stopping by! Ha! Yes ~ I'm still here ~ just super busy traveling, company, working and trying to catch up! Love your list here! One of my Favs in the summer is Breckenridge ~ we grew up skiing there - really up until about 6 yrs ago! But summertime in the mountains is really spectacular too!!! Happy Wed!
