Where to Apres in Vail, Colorado!

Are you looking for a new place to Apres?

Stop by Almresi Vail at the top of Bridge Street and have a Feuerzangenbowle-a traditional German drink for which a rum-soaked sugarloaf is set of fire and the sugar drips into spicy hot wine. The anticipation was building as the sugar drippes into the wine. It tasted amazing and didn’t last long.

It was hard to choose what to have next…Jagertee, Snowstorm Cafe, Schumlil-Pflumli or a schnapps. Stop by then let me know your favorite!

Love this place!

Road Trip~Halloween Ghost Town Tour!!

What a chilling idea for a  Road Trip this ominous Halloween weekend!

map-1-700x519

If you dare to explore these capitivating destinations you can begin your adventure Northeast of Silverton at Animas Forks, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Once an enlivened mining town reliant on the Gold Prince Mill, now all that remains are the deserted homes and businesses and possibly a few misplaced spirits from the past…

 Animas Forks

 Next stop…St Elmo, where a few current residents are known to mingle with former residents of this enchanting town. Maybe saddle up to the bar in one of the saloon’s and feel the effects of more then one kind of Spirit!

St. Elmo

Next you are off to Climax! At 11,360 feet above sea level, this was the highest human settlement in the United States! Nearby, the Molybdenum Mine reopened operations in 2012, but the town of Climax remains forlorn and mysterious for those who dare to explore what remains of this bygone era!

If you haven’t been dispirited yet, then you are a true Ghost Town “die hard”! You are now off to Independence, where gold was first discovered on July 4, 1879! At one time 1,500 residents called Independence their home, if you’re lucky you might run into one or two…..Independence Pass was named after this town!

If you’ve made it this far unscathed, then Eureka is your final destination! Nestled along the Animas River, Eureka’s lively hood stemmed from the mill, it’s remains resemble ancient ruins in an abstract way.

Ahhh, Indian Summer

 

I summer

Why do we call this wonderful time of year Indian Summer? There are many theories, “Indian Giver” is one of the better known sources for this term.

Indian Summer refers to very unseasonable warm and dry weather in late Autumn. There is usually a cold spell with frost preceding this most pleasurable time of year, which lures many into pondering what Winters blustery days might bring! Instead, much to our satisfaction, Indian Summer creeps in, giving us one last opportunity to savor the fading impressions of Summer…Never quite knowing if this magical time will be snatched away in an instant, much like the reputation of an Indian Giver!

Indian Summer here in the Vail Valley usually continues into mid-November, which means there’s still plenty of time left to get out there and take in the beauty that surrounds us!
