Crested Butte

We've been back from Colorado for a few weeks, but I'm just now sorting through all of our pictures. It was a great trip -- cool weather, hiking, rafting, just being together. We stayed in the town of Crested Butte, which is small enough that we were able to walk almost everywhere. Each morning we would get up early and walk to get coffee. It was cool and crisp outside and we always wore jackets. In the evenings we'd walk to town to get ice cream or just stroll around and go in the shops (here is a live cam). During the days we would ride the lift up and down the mountain, hike, go the the creek, or do some of the activities at the base of the mountain. Here are a few pictures:

This is Mt. Crested Butte:

The chipmunks on the mountain were really friendly:


I love this picture. This chipmunk really wanted Jack Henry's cracker:

  1. So beautiful. Reminds me of my other home, Calgary... well, more like Banff which we often took as a day trip.
