Crested Butte, Colorado May 27, 2006 - After doing some photography on the west side of Cottonwood Pass, I traveled to Crested Butte in Gunnison County. That mountain is officially Crested Butte. (Photo taken at the Crested Butte Town Park.)
Crested Butte, CO Confession: I do not visit Crested Butte often enough. This is a very busy ski town in the winter months, and it's remote location gives it some mystique compared to other ski & snowboarding areas.

Crested Butte has done a very good job of maintaining open space around the town center. I was very impressed with their town planning!
