June 24, 2020 Breckenridge/Silverthorne/Tiger Run, CO (Day 4)

The morning temp was 50 when we got up, but quickly warmed up with the sun. I took Auggie for his morning walk while Bob took care of some business. After the walk, Auggie got his MUCH needed bath in the shower and he looked and smelled so much better. A lot of dust and dirt went down the drain. Then Bob and I made plans for the day. We left around 10:30 and headed for the car wash. Bob wanted to get all the dirt and grime off of the Jeep from our two 4WD excursions this week. We found the closest self-serve car wash in Frisco, about 5 miles away. The Jeep got a good washing and we were good to go.

We headed up to Silverthorne via I-70 and got off at the next exit. Going past Lake Dillon, we could see some boats on the lake enjoying the beautiful day.

The drive to Silverthorne was only 6.6 miles from here. We went to go check out my brother and sister-in-law’s new place. They weren’t there now because they just got married on Saturday in California and were back in Sacramento closing up his house and making arrangements for the move to Silverthorne.

We spent some time at the condo enjoying the gorgeous view from the deck overlooking the pond and checking their mail. They have a beautiful place and I’m sure we will be back again to visit.

We left there and stopped at Murphy’s in downtown Silverthorne for a beer and some corned beef sliders. Yes, they had nachos (you know how much we love nachos), but corned beef nachos just didn’t fit the bill.

We enjoyed some time out on the patio under a shade umbrella with a view of the mountains. Colorado sure does a good job of requiring masks in their businesses. We like that and do our part to be responsible.

Our next stop was at the High Country Healing Dispensary.

We wanted to check it out. Inside, they have an area where they actually grow marijuana plants.

Then, of course, there’s the store that has all sorts of products. It was very interesting and informative.

We made one last stop at Walmart for some odds and ends and then back to the campsite. After we put everything away, we finished up by giving Auggie a haircut and nail trim. It was his spa day and he got a little pampering. We relaxed outside enjoying our last day in Tiger Run. It was quiet as most people were gone for the day enjoying the outdoors. Today was the warmest of the days we’ve had here–never needing a fleece the entire day. Bob made lamb chops and asparagus on the grill for dinner. I am one lucky lady to have such a good cook for a husband. Tomorrow, we head for Steamboat Springs, my favorite Colorado “cowboy town”. I know it has probably changed since I was there last, but I have great memories from being there in the past. We’ll pack up a lot of things tonight to make our departure in the morning a little easier. Goodbye, Tiger Run. Hope to see you again.
