Summit County and Lake Dillon in Colorado

We enjoy Summit County in the winter for skiing, hiking and cycling in the summer. There are several National campgrounds around the lake but Heaton Bay is our favorite. Safeway is a couple of miles away in the town of Frisco. The bike trail runs along side the campground. You can ride to Vail, Keystone or Breckenridge.
An evening of kayaking on Lake Dillon.
Riding our bikes from Frisco to Copper Mountain and on to the top of Vail Pass.
The hike is out of Breckenridge up Boreas Pass and beautiful.
After rain and lightening every afternoon, the weather is warming up which sends us looking for shade. Back to Colorado Springs for a couple of weeks while we finish up our jobs before heading out further.


  1. I moved to Dillon CO on the first of October 1990 ... huge snowflakes as we unpacked the U-Haul. A couple of months later we found a cabin outside of Breckenridge that we could not refuse, so moved their and then took the daily drive over the hill to Keystone to work. Stayed long enough for ski season and got out before the mud season in May. Another great area in the USA for outdoor activity.

    1. We are looking forward to returning this summer. You have had wome great adventures.
