Superstar



Yes, I did actually meet the Trigeek Kahuna today--and his family. They were exactly as pictured, with the exception that the kids kind of looked at me like, "who is this man, and what is a Kahuna?" How cool to meet someone for the first time and have it not feel like meeting a stranger, and then to talk about people we had never met like Wil and TriSaratops as mutual friends.

That said, neither the Kahuna nor I were the superstar of the moment. No, the real star of the show in this part of the country is the background. Just take a look at this cyclist's heaven:



How lucky was I do go cycling in a landscape like this:



There are tons of things you can pay to do in Breck. The best thing of all is just sitting outside, watching this world change with the sun's path across the sky, and seeing your own kid find the facination of playing in a creek--for free and with no batteries.

Life is beautiful.

Dude - you're my hero! But, is the Kahuna really as "Geeked" as he claims??

I grew up in Colorado and still get homesick even though it's been almost 20 years past. sk8ter puppy is quite the rider-and cute to boot- I love when my kids just go out and play. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

The non-packed time to just enjoy life and your family is theeee best part of vacation.

Glad you're having such a renewing experience!
