Riding a Gondola in Vail, Colorado

I, Zeb the Duck and Soapy Smith Duck rode on a gondola.

It was exciting for us. And, we love Vail. The entrance to the Eagle Bahn Gondola had ropes for lines, but it was not crowded. We are on!

This is our first gondola. Our moms had ridden before and were with us. From the gondola we saw many bike paths.

People brought their mountain bikes to the top of the mountain on the gondola and rode them down. Soapy’s mom saw one biker fall. A friend was trying to help, but the fallen rider did not get up. When we got to the top of the mountain, Soapy’s mom reported the accident and help was sent.

The day we rode the gondola, the weather was cloudy, cool and quite windy. We went to the restaurant and ordered food.

Here is a pulled pork sandwich, California chicken sandwich with avocado, French fries and diet cokes.   That huge brownie looks great and it tasted fabulous!  Everything was so good. The flowers were so bright, the mountains so magnificent and the sky was deep gray.

We returned to Lionshead Village in Vail on one of the last gondolas of the day.

In the winter Vail is a premier ski resort.  These ski runs are covered with snow and the skiers have a wonderful time.

We had so much fun. Zeb and Soapy hope to ride again, just like human kids.
