Mom visits Colorado, Oct. 2-6
(Last Updated On: October 11, 2008)
My mom came to visit just in time to see the end of our fall peak here in the mountains of Colorado.
We started her visit by visiting the beautiful town of Ouray. From there, we headed back to Crested Butte. Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative. Everyone in the town of Crested Butte was excited for and expecting their first real snowstorm of the season. But what came from the winter storm warning was mostly a bunch of rain.
When the sun did manage to come out on Sunday afternoon, however, we could see that we were surrounded by mountains covered in a blanket of snow.
And the fall leaves were looking particularly magnificent in the crisp light.
We took a little drive over Ohio pass were we enjoyed stunning the scenery.
Wish the weather had cooperated a bit more, but it was great to have my mom here for a long weekend!
