The Most Beautiful Place in the Land

From the mountains that seem to have been landscaped and painted in place to the endless stands of Aspens to the endless expanses of huge mountain valleys, Crested Butte is a beautiful yet humble mountain town.

Take this as a teaser for what may become a month's worth of blog posts.

Fun times! (Sorry I ruined the Deer creek ride)

The Deer Creek Ride wasn't ruined and I got to ride bushwhacking style for a good cause.

Didn't make it to BC. There was a bad accident in Fairplay with two Flight of Life helicopters on scene and they routed us up to Alma. At that point I knew traffic was gonna be a bitch either way so we just drove up through Breckenridge and took the Canyon into Golden where we visited Golden Bike Shop and rode the Alpine Slides.

That's a good description. Rebecca and I both got hooked on the butte about 10 years before we ever met. Always good for a couple of visits a year. Are you going back out for the classic? We'll be out there recreating and enjoying the colors but not racing.
