New Year's Day in Crested Butte

Our New Year's Day in Crested Butte was pretty low key, but very enjoyable. We started out with an early continental breakfast at our hotel.

We spent the rest of the morning hanging out in our hotel room, updating my blog, reading and resting up for the day ahead. We started out taking some photos outside of our hotel.

We wandered around town for a while and had lunch at The Last Steep. I, of course, had the fish tacos, and Chris had the black bean casserole. Good stuff!

Then we headed up the mountain to see what was happening up there. We checked out the views, watched the tubers and skiers and investigated an igloo.

Then we went to The Avalanche for a cocktail at the fire bar. After checking out the ice sculptures in Mountaineer Square, we headed back to town.

We wrapped up the evening with dinner at Donita's Cantina before going back to the hotel for an early night. We still had some sleep to catch up on from the day before.

We got a few inches of snow overnight and it's still snowing. I think we're going to take advantage of it to try out some winter sports.

Great scenery photos. Jury is still out on the food pictures. Looks like it is pretty much winter there. DG
