Day 6 - Crested Butte, Colorado

I am officially in love with this charming town!
The town of CB is pretty small and the mountain/ski resort area is just up the hill about a mile. And best of all - bikes everywhere! Especially super-cool cruisers. Not to mention perfect weather, colorful wildflowers and friendly people.

We booked a room at a European style lodge called Cristiana Guesthaus. Our room (The Eiffel) is cozy and cute. My favorite part... no TV!


As we walked around town, I snapped a bunch of pictures of some of the neat little homes.




Apparently, Crested Butte is also the Wildflower Capital of Colorado.





Quite an array of cool bikes too.





A quick stop here.


Cocktail hour in our room.


Then on to dinner at the Powerhouse. A neat restaurant that used to be the power plant for CB. It was so chilly on the walk home we came right into the lobby to make a hot drink. Fireplace was so cozy.



More fun activities planned for tomorrow. Check back then...
