Breckenridge, Colorado. Almost every summer, we manage to spend a few days there enjoying the sites, shopping, swimming, and of course, running. One of my traditions each year is to challenge myself by running on one of the mountains (usually it's Peak 10 since we stay at the base). This year was no different. I like this run for a number of reasons, but certainly, the breathtaking views of the mountains is one of them.

After some continued climbing, I crested a small hill to find myself directly beneath the chair lift on a run called "The Burn" which seemed quite appropriate given the way that my lungs were feeling. The run was surrounded on both sides by a couple of snow fences, so the only option was to keep going up. After a little more "hiking" I reached the end of the lift, and as it turned out, the ski area boundary. It's hard to see in this photo, but that's what the sign says.
