If you're on your way up to the mountains, take a break at Boulder Falls! It's pretty neat.

Breckenridge is home to the International Snow Sculpture Championships, an event at the tail end of every January where teams from all over the world compete over five days with nothing but hand tools.

Some more info about the competition, dates, parking, and lodging:

Used a GoPro Hero 8, Pentax K1 and, and Polaroid Now+ for this one. Enjoy!

Some travel plans happened to coincide with the second Starship launch, it was pretty neat.

In the first half of the 20th century, the peak of placer mining technology was the dredge, this is the history of the Reiling, an example of a dredge that is all but extinct. @SummitCountyGov @breckenridge @TownofBreckenridge
