The month of May was quiet around the streets of Breckenridge, so our staff took the opportunity to get away to Moab for a week.
It was warm, sunny and only slightly windy.
We biked. A lot.
The first trail was Amasa Back, where we met a friend.
He was a downhiller from California on his first cross country ride.
Then we hit the Slickrock trail. Some of us hit it more literally than others.

We camped next to the river with some beautiful trees.
Which, unfortunately, held mass amounts of caterpillars:
We picked them out of tents, luggage, and Greg even had one crawl up his shorts.
We also kept camp with some ferocious dogs
Jasper and Lulu playing
A sunset hike in Arches National Park to Delicate Arch was a must.

And, of course, there was just general goofiness, because what is a day around The North Face Breckenridge without goofiness?
Love. Just plain love.
After Greg, Jacque, and Brett left, Andy and I did some more biking.

After a week, it was time to head home. We all had another week off.
Andy and I headed to Maine.
We got to spend most of our time here:
Andy's parent's camp
On this lake
I ate lobster for the first time

Andy said, "You're going to put one in and I'm going to take a picture of it!"
It was a wonderful vacation. Thanks, Steve, Susan, and Pete for giving us some vacation time!
