    Although you can't swim anywhere in the lake on account of the fact that it is Denver's drinking water source, you can still enjoy the lake either from the shore or by boat. There's even a nice trail along much of the shoreline for walking, jogging, bicycling, or whatever. It's a really beautiful place that you won't want to miss.

    Frisco is tucked so tightly into a valley that you don't have to go to the mountains; the mountains come to you. Most homes in the city are within easy walking distance of a wonderful network of hiking trails that take you as far up as you want to go, through thick forests and over bubbling mountain streams. It's a beautiful and peaceful place to spend time, enjoy nature, and even get some exercise.

    OK, so I didn't actually try the food here. I just dropped by to pick up some of their locally brewed beer, and I'm definitely glad I did. Why? Well, because it was great! What more can I say?

    It's refreshing to see that Subway, Quiznos, and the like have not completely taken over the world (yet). Smiling Moose Deli is a locally owned sandwich joint that has terrific sandwiches. I'm not sure what else to say. They serve sandwiches. And those sandwiches are quite tasty. Period.

    One tip for you: Service can be kind of slow, so you might want to peruse the menu on their web site and call your order in so you don't have to wait.

    Located in the heart of Frisco's charming main street district, Tuscato has a big menu that will surely have something that catches your eye. We ate there with a huge group of people, and not only was my meal terrific, but everything at our table looked absolutely delicious. You'll pay mountain prices here, but it's worth it. Definitely a great place to eat.

    With Frisco's central location in Summit County it is fairly easy to get to and from by public transport. The Bus Transit Station is located just out of town and services the local Summit Stage free bus service as well as the Colorado Mountain Express.

    The Summit Stage buses run 7 days a week and allow access to all of the main ski areas and local towns. During the winter the buses are equipped with ski racks and during the summer with bike racks. First website (and phone) has details of routes and timetables.

    The Colorado Mountain Express provides minibus services to and from the local airports of Denver and Eagle County and getting the point-to-point service from here is considerably cheaper than getting your ride from your resort. 2nd website has all the details and a booking engine.

    Useful to know is that the Transit Station has a heated waiting room!

    If you are like most people, you will have a car and therefore can drive yourself up to (or back from) the mountain resorts. However, if you find yourself in the situation where you either do not need a car once you arrive, or do not have access to one, you can still arrive to Vail, Frisco, Dillon, Snowmass... just about anywhere in between.

    Prices range from $40 to $400 depending on if you go in the common shuttle bus or if you charter your own ride for a group.

    Pick ups are about every hour. You can book and check rates/times on the internet.
    Colorado Mountain Express.

    I just have to give this Radio Shack here a quick thumbs up - twice I have been in for very specific things and twice I have come out with exactly what I required.

    This is double amazing in that:

    a) I am totally technically illiterate

    and

    b) what literacy I do have is confused by the fact that we call these new-fangled eccentricity gadgets entirely different names back home.

    Different members of staff on both occasions, but equally helpful - language barriers easily broken down!

    What to buy: So far: a step-up transformer with a European 2-pin outlet and a Hi-speed internet cable for my laptop.

    What to pay: About $9 for the cable and just under $40 for the transformer.
