A Colorado Mountain High

I traveled with my family in Colorado to an annual event at Copper Mountain Resort: Guitar Town.  This is my second time to attend...and it's unbelievably awesome.  The event draws top guitarists from the US, Australia, and Canada. It's two days of free entertainment from an outstanding list of performers.  It's a constant stream of music from noon to about 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Each artist does about a 40 minute set.

But first, here's the setting, as seen from the balcony of the rooms we were staying in.  Aw, the smell of fresh air, laced with pine. The elevation is above 9,000 ft. That's not always a welcoming aspect of the experience if you're a musician who lives at sea level. Many of the performers seemed to get winded pretty easily.  But the beauty of the setting for outdoor concerts is magnificent.

And here's what the stage looks like; we got out lawn chairs parked in the grass about 7 rows from the front, so it was pretty good.  More tomorrow...


  1. Music and Nature - a great combination.

  2. Beautiful view. I'm not sure I would ever leave the balcony.
