Road trips can challenge even the most robust relationships. I am happy to report that after a screw in the tire, a speeding warning from a Wyoming sheriff, and 2 car sicknesses, the Ski Town Group family made it to the glorious Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and utterly jaw-dropping Four Seasons Jackson Hole property with minor scrapes and bruises.
Gourmet on Gore is one of my favorite food events in Vail, artwork above created by Carrie Fell! One can really be on their own schedule and eat as much or as little (not likely) as one would want. On Friday, August 30, under an overcast sky, I arrived at Perch in the Vail Village for the beginning of the Gourmet on Gore Tasting Tour, where the proceeds of the evening benefitted Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties.
About a week ago, I had the utmost pleasure to attend the Empty Bowls fundraiser at Battle Mountain High School in Edwards, Colorado. This luncheon raises funds for the Vail Valley Salvation Army, where a fourth of the annual budget restocks food pantries and provides food assistance throughout the Valley.
