Birthday in the Butte

What better way to celebrate my birthday than hanging in Crested Butte. We spent the afternoon trying out our newly acquired mad ski skills. We took a trail that was a couple blocks from our hotel. Beauty was all around.

After doing a little souvenir shopping, we made our last trip to the Last Steep for some key lime margaritas. Yum!

Then we hung out at the Forest Queen with Jeffro until we got hungry for dinner. Chris, Steve and I went to the Lobar for some sushi and something they call "crack fries." They were delicious dipped in wasabi ketchup.

After a few more drinks at the Forest Queen, we said goodbye to our friends and headed back to the hotel to rest up for our 4:30 wake up call.

It was such a great birthday, it almost made up for being old!

Most trails there are groomed for Skate.
