2018 Alpen Schatz 4th of July - Come Join in the Fun!




You are invited to join in our ALPEN 4th of July Fun, marching in the nation's most amazing, quintessential 4th of July Parade in picturesque Telluride, Colorado! 

Check out 2017 Pics HERE







This will be our 15th year gathering up enthusiastic Alpen Schatzi's, both furry and human, who like to don their Alpine gear, decorate their precious pups and march in one of the most amazing parades in the nation.



Pups of all sizes are welcome, and the smaller ones, just might get to ride in one of the many wagons being pulled by grown-up Bernese draft professionals.

DETAILS: We meet at Alpen Schatz, 100 W Colorado Avenue, anytime between 9:00-10:45am to get decorated-up and for pre-show breakfast snacks sponsored by Alpen Schatz.


And then we sneak down the back alley way to join our spot in the parade which kicks off at 11am.








We hope you can make it, as we all have lot's of fun!










Following our march, we head for the river...

where the pups get to cool-off before reconvening back at Alpen Schatz to watch the remainder of the parade in the shade and have celebration cake!


And we even win prizes - more cause to celebrate!


Be sure to don your Alpine apparel on the 4th or get yourself and your pup a new Alpine outfit from Alpen Schatz

ALPEN TRAVEL TIPS: Victorian Charm in the Heart of Oxford

Click HERE to check out and reserve my Oxford Home

I have recently acquired a beautifully renovated Victorian home in the heart of Oxford, England - my old home town. When not there myself, I will be sharing my home as a unique holiday rental on AirBnB. I hope my Alpen Schatz travel enthusiasts will take advantage of staying there whilst traveling abroad.


\

It is light and airy 


 with many new furnishings offering modern luxury mixed with old world charm.



A fully equipped kitchen for cooking at home.


 I have decorated it with my favourite antiques, such as a Victorian dinner gong, and beautiful classic art to give it that homey feel.


 Some features are its claw foot tub in the master bedroom



 and a beautiful dining room in which to entertain.



 There are three bedrooms, two Kings and one double, all furnished with comfy mattresses and soft luxurious bedding.



The third bedroom has a Victorian fire place for extra charm



and french doors leading to a private deck
overlooking my secluded back garden (yard).
 

 My Berner boys adorn the mantle piece.


 Sunset from the Master Bedroom overlooking the rooftops of Oxford.

Built in 1892, my period property lies a mere 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride to Magdalen Bridge, which is the entrance to historical Oxford City Centre.

It is in a sought after neighborhood of Oxford, minutes away from the colorful Cowley Road with its myriad of ethnic restaurants, organic cafe's and eclectic shops.


For the nature lover, it is a short walk up to two great parks - perfect for strolling, jogging or taking a lovely picnic whilst overlooking the dreaming spires of Oxford.

Perfect for the solo traveler or couple wanting space or for a family or group of friends needing multiple bedrooms. Divinity Road is available from 2 night minimum rentals up to two months. For its size and what it offers, it is one of the best priced options for a comfortable stay in Oxford.



A spring day in Headington Park - just up the road

I hope to welcome you to my new home in the Divinity Road,
Oxford, England, some day!
