Hello from Crested Butte!

So far our Epic Colorado trip has indeed been EPIC! Way too much to try to type out here. We've spent the last three days in Pitkin... sleeping at nght to the sound of rushing water courtesy of Quartz Creek. No phone service, no internet... not even TV while in our cabin at Pitkin... but it was FANTASTIC. We both LOVE Pitkin.

We spent almost the entire day today revisting Alpine Tunnel. Much more on this experience at a later time.

Tomorrow we unload the bikes and it's off to ride the surrounding mountains one more time. Then Saturday it's begin the trek home.

This will no doubt go down in our books as one of the best Colorado vacations yet. We just love this state!

Well... all for now... more when we get back!

Sounds like a great time and enjoyable. A few weeks ago my son made his annual trek to CO. for hiking the mountains. He and a friend take along 4-5 teenagers to teach camping and hiking skills every year. This year they made the climb to the summit of Mt. Elbert the second highest peak in the lower 48. (14,440') I virtually followed along via a GPS link as these old legs are just not up to that kind of work anymore.

Hi Spud!

Understand completely on the "old legs" thing. When in Colorado, the wife and I enjoy getting out and hiking "a bit"... but nothing truly strenuous... maybe 2-3 miles at most now? Hard for our older flatlander lungs to get oxygen up that high!
