It’s starting out like another Blue Bird Day, not a cloud in the sky, cool, shirt sleeves or t-shirt or sleeveless.  Streams are running high but clear, lots to do.  Nice article in the Vail Daily about fishing.  Do it, come to Vail.  Get out of the heat where you are now.

Happy Trails to You!

GO PRO was last week.  This week it is KING OF THE MOUNTAIN, the USA’s largest  2- person VOLLEYBALL tournament.  It isn’t summer on the calendar yet but it feels like summer.  It is a great time to be in Vail.  The high trails and lakes above 10,500 feet have not melted of ice and snow, but snow shoes are fun, easy to rent.and use.  The creeks and streams are high but running clear.  The last several mornings have been in the high 40s with the daily high in the 70s. The golf courses and restaurants and shops are all open.   The River Rafting on Gore Creek is great and we can see it from our office window on the North side.  Come and see us.  Have a great Father’s day tomorrow.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob

Just check the VAILDAILY.COM for the scope of the Go Pro Mountain Games that have been happening here.  Serious and/or just Fun competitions.  The crowds have been huge.  In Vail Village yesterday it was as crowded almost as July 4.  And it is happening for 4 days.  Today’s paper at VAILDAILY.COM on page A21 has a great picture of the people at one of the events on the bridges and along Gore Creek.  The BLUE AWNING almost in the center of the picture is the Gateway Real Estate Vail office.  Come and see us when you are in town.  We are right in the center of everything.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob
