The Vail Valley’s week in photos (Sept. 17-23)
This time of year in the Vail Valley is full of color and, hopefully, some snow. This past week provided both. A new coat of white fell on the top of Vail Mountain while the aspens exploded with gold. Students from Gypsum Creek Middle School helped learn about Gore Creek while performing a service project to help its health. Vail Pioneer Weekend, which happens every five years, took place in Vail.
David Lesh, the snowmobiler who became infamous over the summer for boasting about sledding in wilderness areas, crash landed his plane in the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday.
