Fall drive to Crested Butte

We missed doing this drive last year so were really looking forward to going this year. From Basalt it takes about 2.5 hours to drive via McLure and Kebler passes to Crested Butte. What a stunning drive. Kebler Pass is said to be home to the second largest aspen grove, so the second largest living organism on the planet, all aspens in the grove sharing the same root system. This year we saw a lovely combination of yellow, lime green and red leaves. We had lunch in Crested Butte and did some fun shopping then drove home.


About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
