We drove up to Crested Butte yesterday for lunch. It is about an hour and a half north of here, so it's perfect for a day trip. There is a darling town down below the Butte. Sweet little houses, that are laden with flowers and a downtown with a multitude of shops, art galleries and cute restaurants; most of them having terraces where you can marvel at the blue skies. (pictures above). There is also and area up the hill near the ski lifts with larger newer homes and a lot of condo's.
We are always amazed at the median age group here. Anytime you have a downhill ski community,there seems to be a youthful population!
