When not touring, Elvis Presley liked to have a lot of fun, treating Graceland like his very own playground. But The King also enjoyed his vacations in places like his beloved Hawaii and even skiing in Colorado. Now in a new Instagram post, his ex-girlfriend Linda Thompson, who he dated from 1972-1976 has shared some hilarious stories and a picture of herself with Elvis just over 18 months before his untimely death.

Linda shared a picture of herself and Elvis in ski jackets with her arm resting on his shoulder while on vacation in Colorado.

“Stand out memories… Elvis buying cars at a local Cadillac dealership for numerous people…

“Still wearing his ski mask, Elvis looked all around, left and right, up and down; then he answered mischievously, ‘He’s here … somewhere.’”

The receptionist then shot back, “And who are you?” to which Elvis replied, “The Lone Ranger.” But she’d already gone back to her paperwork, paying no attention to the disguised star.
