Breckenridge Colorado. All the cool locals call it "Breck", I guess because they're too busy having fun to say the entire name.
I spent some time last night looking on the Internet for a place to camp near Leadville which is my next destination, and didn't have much luck. A lot of the national forest campsite's are full, and the RV parks in the area are too expensive mostly around 50 bucks a night. From what I've seen it appears the government has leased out a lot of the national forest campgrounds to concessionaires who have raised the prices and put in a reservation system which makes them more appealing to a lot of folks, which quickly fills them up. My Plan "B" is to see if I can find some boondocking in the area but Leadville's around 10,000 feet in altitude so I probably can't get too far out in the sticks before I run into some snow.
So anyway, I went to Breckenridge this morning walked around and took a few pictures and then came back to the Frisco area where there's enough national forest campgrounds that there's spaces available. So I'll spend another night here near Frisco and then get back on I-70 in the morning and head for Leadville where hopefully a camping spot will turn up.
I suppose when you spend all day shredding the slopes, doing gnarly jibs, or bailing off a kicker, there's just no time left to complete a sentence or even a word. Radical throwdown ma steezy bro.
Old building on Main Street in Breck.
The gold pan saloon has been open longer than any other Saloon west of the Mississippi.
If you would like to open your own shop in Breck I think this one has potential limited only by your imagination and financial depth.
it took me a while to find a place to park, but I ended up With a nice view of the ski slopes.
