Crested Butte is quite possibly my favorite town that I've ever been to. It's like what I imagine places like Boulder and Breckenridge were like before they blew up. It's such a cute little mountain town.
We made the 4.5 hour drive from Boulder because we read that Kebler Pass (west of Crested Butte) was the largest aspen grove in the state, and that this weekend was actually still peak for the fall colors. The rest of town peaked last week. We're all about driveable "staycations."
Our hike on Dark Canyon Trail was so beautifully romantic. It was as if God had strewn aspen leaves like rose petals on the trail for us.
I don't want to type too much on this post. Just enjoy the photos and start planning your trip.
