We took a quick trip up to visit Breckenridge and to admire the International Snow Sculpture Championships. For once I actually made note of when it was rather than hearing about it after it was over!
It was a joyous escape to the high country down 285 to Fairplay and in the back way over magnificent Hoosier Pass to Breckenridge. The weather for an out door festival was great, yet at 32 degrees it was cool enough to keep the sculptures from pouring away and not to chilly for the spectators.
See the pictures in the Photo Album.
Our ride home was slow, it began to snow...sideways. Thankfully it only does that in the mountains. Or rather most of the time it does that in the mountains. Or more often than not.....oh forgetaboutit.

The story of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, known as the Butterfly Lovers, is based upon a historical legend known to every Chinese. Their love plunged them into fatal tragedy. Both of them turned into a pair of beautiful butterflies when they died for their love. To this day, people still believe that the two butterflies were the undaunted spirits of the young lovers.
