Just a quick note to everyone. Sandy and I just came back from Vail, Colorado visiting our son and his wife. We spent a long weekend with them first in Denver and then up to Vail or really Edwards, Co. Visiting was great and touring the country side was really neat with the leaves changing and the cool, cool air compared to San Antonio, Texas.
The part that I wanted to really comment on was all of the projects that I visualized at there condo. I’m not sure if I would have seen all of the work that could be accomplished a few years ago but I could really see all the wood work that could be done at there place and now trying to figure out how to get accurate measurements and ship it up there to them.
Does anyone else have this problem? Also my wife commented on the fact that as we were walking around the Vail area looking at all of the shops and such that I stopped at a construction site and was quite taken by the beams that they were working on- had to be 2 foot square chunks of wood.
Anyway for those that travel and visit there children around the country, always remember that the elvelation between San Antonio and Vail are really different…......

Your both right. And yes they do some very expensive construction up there. The Beaver Creek Lodge is massive and expensive.
