Basalt to Gunnison via Crested Butte

We had to go to Gunnison in preparation for an upcoming rafting trip to collect a trip member’s equipment. Road trip – yay! As we drove from Carbondale towards Redstone Mt Sopris looked so stunning with snow capped peaks against the green farmland. I did not think Kebler Pass would be open but it was! This made the trip a lot shorter and prettier than going via Delta then Montrose. Having not driven Kebler at this time of year before (usually this is a fall leaf trip for me) I was entranced with how green everything is. We stopped in Crested Butte for lunch – I love that town! On the way back I took some pictures of Hays Creek Falls just near Redstone – beautiful!

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!
