Re: Mountain Drive

There is a beautiful drive drive from Denver to Breckenridge--through some
beautiful landscapes. Take 285 South to South Park and up across Hoosier
Pass to Breckenridge. After a stop in Breckenridge, you can return to
Denver via I70.

I agree with Woody, take it easy on wine the first day, and drink LOTS of
water and you shouldn't have a problem with the altitude.

Looking forward to it.
