Vail with Friends!

There is amazing free camping off of the top of Vail Pass. I love this picture of Paul and Becca AKA: Pubecca) on the blanket in the grass. Makes me feel like a hippie. 

 After my time in Crested Butte I got a call from my friends Paul and Becca to meet them at Vail to ride the Two Elks trail.

Views of the Gore Range off in the distance. We took the Bowmans Shortcut route to the Two Elks trail.

Paul getting his shred on. The upper part of the Two Elks trail was open and fast!

The Colorado Indian Paint Brush is my favorite flower to photograph.

Becca soaking in the views on the Two Elks Trail. We lucked out with great weather this day.

The end of the trail was  a techy exposed canyon next to this stream before you finished in the town of Minturn.

The next day Paul and Becca went to Vail resort to ride with a friend and I took a backcountry route to meet them at Vail resort from out camp.

The route took me to over 11k feet and to the top of the Mongolia Bowl. I have never skied Vail so it was cool to see this iconic skiing area.

After this ride we got some fried chicken in west Vail at a place called Yellow Belly that makes fantastic gluten free chicken.
