Biking Vail with Lexey

Lexey and I went for a good ride today in Vail after visiting the Hulse household and meeting their baby, Lyla, for the first time. The weather was perfect. The aspens are all green. The wildflowers are starting to come out.

Whitewater Rafting in Clear Creek Canyon

Some great rapids, but only up to Class 4 because the water levels are so low this year:

The morning was a stunner (before the rain started):
