On Thursday, May 27th 2021, Andrea and I flew out to Denver and then took a car service to Vail. We stayed at The Sebastian which is in a convenient location in Vail Village. We had originally been planning to go to Orlando for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, but Andrea checked the weather and it was supposed to be in the mid-90's. We just were not ready for the heat of the summer yet and decided to look in to some areas that were cooler. Vail has been on our list of places to visit for a long time and it ended up being a great time to travel there. The weather was in the 60's to 70's for the highs, and at night it dipped as low as the upper 30's. It was strange, perhaps because of the low humidity or altitude, but it didn't seem that cold when we were outside and it was in the 40's.
Overall, it was such a wonderful vacation. It was awesome to enjoy the cool weather and to explore the Vail area. Vail was beautiful, the people were friendly, the food was delicious, the scenery was breathtaking, and it was neat that we even got to see some wildlife on our hikes. We definitely enjoyed it and plan to go back, but not sure yet if we want to try a skiing vacation. Summertime in the mountains sounds nice.
