Day 5 - Photos

Much of the road to the first aid station was like this; pine forests and creek to our right and Aspen groves on our left. Beautiful grass and flowers all around.

Lovely forested scenery and runners on the switchback path

Lisa D and lovely scenery

Entering the Vail ski area. This footpath took us to the top of the ridge via many long switchbacks at a pleasant gradient

Almost at the highest point, just before Aid Station 2. Lisa was waiting for me just up the ridge, while I was playing photo-photo ;)

At Aid Station two with one of the volunteers. Love the sign… (and hat)

Team Lisa prepares to descend

Aid Station 3, Mardi Gras theme

Team Lisa has a photo with a festive aid station volunteer

That’s Vail down in the valley. About 2.5miles to go…

Oh yeah, bring it on!

Team Lisa completes Stage 5! (that’s Gordon sneaking a jump into our photo…)

A really cool skier statue dedicated to Vail’s athletes who have excelled in the US and abroad.
