Farewell to Crested Butte

Crested Butte, Colorado

July 23, 2015

We have enjoyed the many delights of Crested Butte this month.  The high mountain landscapes carpeted in a wild variety of wildflowers is nectar for the soul.  I will leave you with a few images that stick in my heart.

An old abandoned ranch along Ohio Creek Road.  A nice fixer-upper with mountain views…

A rare treasure, deep blue columbine, found along the Wildflower Loop.
