Meet Dr. Breland
Dr. Breland has long been an enthusiast of the outdoors, with previous passions including road and mountain biking, running, hiking, kayaking, and fishing. He and his wife, a veterinarian, have four children ranging in age from 10 to 1, as well as several pets. "When we first visited the Valley, we fell in love with the small towns, the close-knit feel, the friendliness of the people we met, and, of course, the scenery," he says. "Since I was a kid, I have wanted to live in the mountains in a place like this. We immediately felt that this could be our new home, and we sensed the esprit de corps. After several years living in the Houston area, we were ready! And although until recently I knew nothing of the Roaring Fork Valley, once we visited and began talking about it, we discovered quite a few connections that we had to people in the area, all of whom had nothing but good things to say." The family look forward to finding their place here and to enjoying the many opportunities for outdoor recreation.
