A final collection of photographic souvenirs from Monica Prelle’s fall trip to Breck.

Before I visited Breckenridge in late September, it was one of those ski towns I’d heard of but didn’t think I needed to check out. I live in my own mountain town in California, and most of my travel time is spent at the beach.

But after just a few days, I realized, I could see myself here: There’s epic mountain biking, world-class fly fishing, the highest chair lift in North America, and the people are, well, my kind of people.

[Editor's note: Monica was a guest of GoBreck on this trip.]

    What kind of camera did you use for these?

      Hi Grant, these were mostly shot on an iPhone, but some were from a Nikon D90 and transferred to Instagram.
