CB is one of our favorite towns in CO. Our timing for this visit couldn’t have been more perfect. The plein air event was in full swing and the wild flower festival was just beginning. The town was buzzing.
We spent our first night in what we later found out was an illegal camp. It was part of a Crested Butte Land Trust. Someone had built a campfire ring over the 4th, so we assumed it was a camp area. The next day we were over run with people parking to hike and fish. A volunteer asked us if we would please move so they could clean up and dismantle the fire ring. We moved about 1/2 mile in to the BLM area, which is great. Lots of room and a roaring river by our site.
