Crested Butte in bloom

Crested Butte, Colorado

July 5, 2015

We enjoyed an amazing jeep ride up Slate River Road to Paradise Divide and then returned on Washington Gulch Road.  The skies were dark and threatening but that did not suppress the traffic on the road from cars, mountain bikers or 4 wheelers.  Should have known better than travel on the 4th of July weekend.
