Driving to Crested Butte





In the toilet

Town Hall in Mt Crested Butte



Relaxing after hiking to Judd Falls







Sunday back to Crested Butte another stop at the Italian Café before heading further up the mountain to Mt Crested Butte, this was another 11 miles away, after stopping at the info centre there we drove another mile (this was all on dirt roads again) parked the car then a 2 mile hike to Judd Falls again beautiful scenery along the way & more different wild flowers, not seen much wildlife the last few days only a Marmot ( no photo though) there is black bears here & mountain lions.

Back to the car to drive further up the mountains, dirt roads, then we come across part of the road which we could not get through part of it had fallen away the rest was deep ruts only 4 x 4’s were getting through it was a shame as we were heading to Emerald Lake there was also an Ice Plug ( Ice blocking the road).

The scenery here is breath taking, so green & colourful with the snow topped mountains.

Mt Crested Butte was like going back in time, tiny buildings dotted about and what looked smaller buildings behind that looked like outside loos.

On the move again Monday driving to Canon City about a 2.5 hour drive just spending 2 nights there.
