During my first semester of graduate school, I volunteered for a three day affordable housing charrette that would take place during October 11th - 13th at the Affordable Housing Now! Conference in Vail, Colorado. Vail colorado is one of the primier skiing destination in the nation. However, I visiting during offseason so you won't be seeing any snow or skiiing in these pictures. Instead you'll find beautiful pictures of this ski resort and the surrounding landscape.
