June 29 – July 5, 2012 – Wendy visits Breckenridge

Time with my big sis…

It was a VERY busy week with my big sis…  she came in on a Friday night and left the following Friday Morning.  I took some time off from work to do some things.  Since it was the week of the 4th I had to do some work.  The July 4th Holiday is one of our biggest fund raisers for the BHA, so I worked on Tuesday the 3rd and Wednesday the 4th.

So keeping Wendy busy was not a real problem.

Day 1:  Leadville, Co – Started out with a brief visit to the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum.  We only had one day and we really wanted to spend as much time as possible at Tabor’s Matchless Mine and Baby Doe’s Cabin.

After we finished at the Matchless we took a drive up Independence Pass, stopping briefly to take some pictures at Locomotive 641.

We rushed back to Breck just in time to join Mike for his Saloon Tour and then the ever popular Haunted Tour.  Wendy really into the Saloon/Bar thing, but she did learn a lot about Breckenridge and the characters around back in the day.

Day 2:  Breckenridge, Co – Breck Connect Gondola and Historic Walking Tour of Breckenridge.

Wendy really wanted to ride up a lift and since Jerry wasn’t able or even wanted to back in December, I caught up with an old friend from the resort and he let us on the Colorado Superchair that goes up to about
