Eagle County, Colorado

Eagle County, Colorado After seeing that the Mayflower Gulch Trail was still packed with snow and wouldn't be much fun to hike, I wound up driving all around Eagle County, Colorado. I did not have a particular destination, and simply drove from town to town and snapped pictures. Eagle County is the home of Vail, Avon, Beaver Creek and popular ski resorts.
Vail, Colorado This is my one photo of Vail. It's not much. While driving westbound on Interstate 70, this is the view in East Vail.
Eagle County, Colorado I drove through Vail, Avon and Edwards, and eventually made it to Eagle, the county seat for Eagle County. Ah, but I still felt kind of "antsy" in the car and didn't know what to do or where to go, and so I drove back toward Vail. Here's a photo traveling back on I-70 east.
Rocky Mountains I stopped at an overlook in Edwards. I do not know the names of those mountains.
Avon, Colorado I must confess this is a lazy shot. I rolled down the passenger side window and snapped this photo of Avon. Now Avon is an attractive ski town. Real estate is a little less pricey compared to Vail and as you can see, there is a golf course for your enjoyment when it ain't ski season.
Grouse Creek Trail I headed toward Minturn and hiked a short distance on the Grouse Creek Trail.

Eagle River Colorado As I headed up Tennessee Pass, the highway ran along the Eagle River. I love this photo!
