The Sun Always Shines in Crested Butte

I thought I was hopeless at skiing after seeing no improvement whenever I skiied. As it turns out, either the simple magic of being in Crested Butte or a good lesson was all I needed. That's not to say that I'm an expert now, but I definitely saw quite a bit of improvement just in the hour we were in the lesson. Besides our ski lesson, we did a bit of browsing at a couple of shops in town, had lunch at the Last Steep, ate dinner at Ginger Cafe and finished the evening, as is our custom, at the Forest Queen. Here are some photos from our day:

Shrimp and vegetable concoction Chris had (I forget what it was called)

Today's our last day in Crested Butte—gotta live it up!

I'm thinking you might be the next " Picabo Street " on the downhill. I've seen some of that food with the sticks stuck through it on the Survival Show. Have a safe trip home. DG
