Get Out There and Explore
September 19, 2010
If you like to get out there, I mean really out there and explore, Crested Butte is your place. Surrounded by a ridiculous amount of wilderness offering you endless trail and mountains to climb, this is the place. This day I was limited on time so I decided to visit a mountain that I only normally visit in the winter backcountry skiing, Mount Emmons. With a good 4 wheel drive jeep one can drive up the 4x4 road on the back side of the mountain until the road starts to deteriorate and it is best to start hiking. The top picture is my view of Mount Crested Butte and our two towns (Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte). The second picture was of some other summiteers as they explored the mountain top ridge.
