It’s remote location means that stays in Denver, Colorado usually involve at least one day off and on this trip we have two, one either side of the show. My day out of the ‘bubble’ was spent in the mountains visiting my good friend Gavin who owns and runs a great Horseback riding adventure Ranch called Bearcat Stables.
A two hour drive West along the scenic I70 takes you beyond Vail and to a resort known as Beaver Creek. The altitude here takes some getting used to, every step seems to require an extra breath. Gavin and I headed off to play golf at a Tom Weiskopf-designed course now known as Frost Creek. It’s SO quiet up here, not a sound…apart from the occasional cry of “four”. Anyone who has played golf at altitude knows the effect on distances. I was hitting two clubs lower for the same yardages (golf geek-speak). With one eye on the lookout for Bears and trying not to hit the many tame Deer which roam here, we had a great round, just making it in before darkness fell at 7:15.
