Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour | Keystone, CO

Just when I thought my bacon obsession was in control I received a gracious invitation to the Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour in Keystone, CO.

Within one second I responded….YES! All sorts of bacon creations were well represented…

There were plenty of savories. French Fries with Cheesy Bacon Sauce kicked things off for us.

There were lots of sweets too…here’s a Bacon S’more & Caramel Sundae with Bourbon Bacon Bits…

We got our bacon on with lots of hungry folks.

As the name says this festival is a tour. You can eat your bacon in Keystone & a few other locations across the country.

The next day I had the opportunity to hike my bacon off with some amazing ladies!

Our guide was very knowledgeable & hilarious.

In the winter I skied Keystone (see Savor the Slopes) & it was so fun to take in the summer wildlife, flowers and get in some vertical mountain views.

You can hike & mountain bike the mountain on your own or with a group of very educated guides.

I learned so much on our excursion that I highly recommend you book a guided hike too. It was interesting to learn the history of the ski resort, about the neighboring fourteeners & to just giggle with girl talk!

There were also people tubing in the last bits of snow…
