Copper Mountain Resort, Colorado (February, 2003)

 
In late January we began planning a ski trip (my first ever, Mel's first to Colorado) with our good friends Jason and KariLynn.  The plan was to leave Springfield around 5pm on a Wednesday and drive through the night to arrive in Copper Mountain at about 8am just in time to hit the slopes.

It was a long trip, with little sleep, but we made it fine and after a much needed breakfast at Denny's in Frisco (a few miles from Copper), this was the scene as the first bit of sunlight was bringing the Rockies to life.
