Family visits the Butte

(Last Updated On: July 1, 2010)

My folks came to visit us in Crested Butte last week. Not the normal Ohio kind, they kept things quite active. I wasn’t able to join them on everything, but here’s what we did do.

1) Rode our bikes down to Almont and back.

3) Went for an 11.5 mile hike on Daisy Pass.

4) Saw Frank’s picture in the Crested Butte Museum.

Yep, he’s pretty much famous.

5) Got some ideas for our upcoming wedding.

No, we haven’t set a date yet….

6) Tried to hike up to the peak of Mount Crested Butte.
Well, my folks hiked, I rode my bike. Unfortunately, we were turned around by thunderstorms. But, it was still a good hike/bike with great views.

The lupine are magnificent this year.
