From Crested Butte we headed over Cottonwood Pass.  The first three pictures are from the summit of the pass.  It was all gravel/dirt on the way up but paved on the other side...does that make sense? From there we went to St. Elmo, an old mining town.  I've been there before but always love going back.  My former dentist(now retired) had a cabin in St. Elmo.  We were looking in one of the old buildings and a couple young men from Michigan began talking to us (it was some of their kin's cabin).  They were out there for a week hiking and fishing and having a good time.


Now, on to the last picture. :)  How many of you knew a deer squatted to pee?  I didn't so it was a new one on me. :)

Hi There, We are home from our trip. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Great pictures. As much as I've seen deer ---I have NEVER seen them squatting like that... Hmmmmmmm... Have no answer as to what that one is really doing.

Great shots and I learned something new as well.

I can learn so much by visiting your blog! But I would come for the pictures even without the education. Your pictures from the summit are wonderful. Perhaps the explanation for the gravel/paved question is that you went up the wrong side of the mountain!
