Rest Day in the Rockies!

Beautiful, lovely Breckenridge! What a place to have a day off! Breckenridge is a gorgeous ski resort town with plenty of outdoor activities to do in the summer too and lots of good shops, cafes and restaurants. Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains; a good place for Mountain biking, Robin and Steve decided to do this! As if they hadn't had enough biking already!! Needless to say, I didn't, and instead Kath and I headed into town for a mid morning coffee and pastry followed by massages and haircuts. Perfect way to relax! Ending the evening with a lovely meal and beer at the local brewery, and then a dip in the hot tub with brownies and ice cream! The problem is with luxury on this trip, is that its all the worse getting back into it! Although today has not been too bad. Our reward for all the hills has been a 72 mile downhill with panoramic views of the Rockies! Well, we're not quite at our destination yet; hot sulphur springs. We've stopped 17 miles away at a town called Kremmling for lunch and now taking cover in the library until the rain stops! I can hear the thunder crashing!

Apparently tonight we are camping next to the hot sulphur springs, hence the name 'hot sulphur springs', and wuill get to use the natural spa there which sounds nice. I'm cooking with Phil tonight though so won't be able to spend too much time relaxing! Something easy I thought; bangers and mash!
