November 8, Fall in Vail

In September, my husband and a couple of my parents and I headed to Vail for a weekend. It was so nice to see the fall color, go mountain biking down the ski hill**, and stay right in the heart of town. I loved go swimming in September at the end of Colorado thanks to that warm high altitude sunshine (certainly not because of the crisp air temperature or the cool water), eating at a German restaurant, and having cable (and a t.v. in our bedroom!). Thanks Dad and Mary for an awesome weekend!

**Does mountain biking down 60% of the blue trail count as mountain biking down the ski hill?!

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
