Tuesday, August 8, Wednesday, August 7, 2013 Eagle Vail

I invited the Ride the Rockies group (6) to stay at our condo in Eagle Vail earlier in the week so we could get acclimated to the elevation before our ride.  I arrived Monday evening, and Tuesday Jane Howard came by shuttle from the Denver Airport.  After getting her settled, we had dinner at the Avon Deli, and made plans for the next day.

Wednesday thought it would be fun to take a few hours to hike and we decided on one that was within walking distance of the condo.  Being from Charlottesville, VA, that could be our first adventure to get used to the altitude.

One of the things Jane really wanted to do was to mountain bike, so I took her to Lions Head in Vail to rent a mountain bike from Vail Tech.  We rode up the gondola with the bike inside. 

Late Wednesday afternoon, Sharon Howrey drove to the condo from Boulder, CO, and Pam Harrison came from the airport by shuttle.  We had a great dinner at the condo (thanks to Sharon), and made plans for the next day.
