Summer 2021, Day 35: Crested Butte Reposition

Following Shabbos and Tisha B’Av, I packed up at Hartman Rocks and came down into Gunnison where I replaced the truck’s front passenger brake pads:

After dumping, filling, and buying groceries, I headed north to the town of Crested Butte:

After setting up in my dispersed camping spot, I toured the area on my motorcycle:

Crested Butte is one of the birthplaces of mountain biking, and has some of the most well-known trails in the world.  I’m looking forward to seeing what Crested Butte has to offer!
