The Frisco-Breckenridge CO area

My eleven mile ride along the bicycle path from Frisco into Breckenridge was one of the most remarkable and memorable of all the (approximately) ten thousand miles I've cycled so far.

The surrounding mountain scenery was beautiful. The air was clean and crisp. The municipal infrastructure I saw along the way was both modern and well cared for. The "Blue River" which this bicycle path followed was a vision of wholesomeness. The homes I saw along the way were beautiful, and there was no garbage, sadness, or decay, anywhere. In short, I wanted to either move here, plan to retire here, or else simply refuse to leave.

I realize this may sound silly, but by the time I rolled into Breckenridge I was SERIOUSLY entertaining the thought that I'd actually been hit from behind by a truck earlier in the day, killed instantly, and was now being shown my personal vision of heaven.

So, I suppose this is a win-win situation for anyone who follows this blog: if I AM actually dead, then there is indeed both a God and a heaven, and (to put this as delicately as I can...) given the life I have led if I went to heaven then so will you.

On the other hand, if I am in fact alive, then Frisco CO and Breckenridge CO are places you can actually visit while you are alive.

So, either way, you win :)
