Colorado Trip - March 3-10, 2013

These pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S9000 digital camera, Cathy's Canon PowerShot A540, and Mike's iPhone on a trip to Colorado from March 3-10, 2013. Images are shown at a resolution of 640x480, but many are available in half of original size by clicking on the links after the captions.

Pictures are divided among these pages:

Sunday, March 3

Travel day. Mike had already been at the airport [Picture] for a while when I arrived so we already had our rental car and were soon on our way across Denver [8 Road Pictures] for a quick dinner, then on up (in some snow on I-70) to the condo in Breckenridge [2 Pictures].

Monday, March 4

Day 1 at Breckenridge and it was a powder day. We left the condo in the morning in the snow [2 Pictures][3 Pictures] to pick up our rental skis, then back to the condo to take the bus to the mountain. Excellent first day [9 Pictures]. Later, we were back to the condo to make pasta for everyone and decide on what to do tomorrow. A Liftopia deal on Copper made that decision easy.

Tuesday, March 5

This was Copper Mountain day. We had to drive there from Breckenridge in the morning [4 Pictures][6 Pictures], a process complicated by the fact that we needed to print out our Liftopia receipts. This was accomplished at a print/copy place in Frisco, and we were on our way [11 Pictures]. Another great day, this one on fresh powder under bright sunny skies. We have a lot more pictures from the day: [18 Pictures][26 Pictures][1 Movie]. After skiing, we headed back to Breckenridge [5 Pictures] and we went for a nice dinner in town at The Warming Hut restaurant. Mike has some additional pictures of the condo taken that evening [4 Pictures].

Wednesday, March 6

Back to Breckenridge. In the morning, we had to clear out of the condo [2 Pictures], as we would be heading to Denver after skiing. This time, we drove to town and parked near the gondola loading area. We had a very different but just as excellent a day under sunny skies and with plenty of snow [25 Pictures][8 Pictures]. After skiing and returning our skis, it was time to head on down to Denver [29 Road Pictures]. We eventually figured out how to navigate to the hotel's parking garage, checked in, cleaned up, and found some dinner nearby at a sports bar.

Thursday, March 7

This was the first full day at SIGCSE 2013, the primary reason for the trip. The conference was very good, and lunch at Illegal Pete's was excellent.

Friday, March 8

Day 2 at SIGCSE and the day of our talk. Otherwise, another good day at the conference. With nothing official going on that I was interested during the evening, I took the light rail down to the University of Denver for a college hockey game at Magness Arena [3 Pictures].

Saturday, March 9

This was the last day of SIGCSE, and a big snowstorm was in the forecast. The storm never materialized in Denver [Picture], yet many people had flights cancelled. We were not flying out until Sunday anyway, so we stayed through to the conference lunch, the official end of the main part of the conference. When it was time for dinner, I found Bayou Bob's for some excellent southern food.

Sunday, March 10

With the snowstorm over, there was no problem with travel home..
