When I think back on the many summers we spent in Colorado I think of a verse from the song My Way by Frank Sinatra. The one that goes “regrets, I’ve had a few” One of those regrets was not going here:

Should I Have?

The Crystal Mill perched on the rocky banks the Crystal River since 1892
is undoubtedly the most coveted photograph in all of Colorado.
This fabulous picture was taken (recently) by the very the talented photographer Michael Underwood. Michael has a gallery in Lake City, CO a place not to be missed if you are ever there.
So why on our many outings did I not go there? Well with all of it’s incredible beauty it is also incredibly difficult to get to. Hidden away just fives miles east of the small town of Marble,CO it’s only reached by a treacherous, rough, narrow one lane road where even with a 4x4 vehicle you are advised to also have high clearance. If you know me at all you know that I shy away from such roads….
So here I am also reminded of another song this one written Beverly Knight .
“Woulda Shoulda Coulda”
but didn’t…and wish I had.
