SOME NEAR AND INTERESTING CO. PLACES

Last month we spent a wonderful 2 days with a group of friends at Waunita Hot Springs, a delightful ranch with a large pool fed by the numerous hot springs in the area. We did some x-country skiing, ate delicious food and had a great time.

On the way back we pass this perfect "Indian Head" Mountain.

We took a detour to the old town of Pitkin, a bustling place in the summer, but pretty much deserted in the winter.

There still remain a few of the original cabins.

Back in Gunnison, we stopped to eat our sandwiches by the Gunnison River and watch the accumulation of Mallard ducks.

The active summer "Water Park" was coated with ice and didn't look like nearly as much fun.

On another day on a drive to Montrose. I snapped this shot as we passed the Dillan Pinacles.

A bit further on the emerging color of spring took my eye.
As "spring" progresses here in the Rockies, we have had an additional 2 feet of snow at our house during the past 4 to 5 days, interspersed with wind, then sunshine. But we are leaving today for a week in San Miguel, where I understand the temperatures are 90 degrees. Maybe when we get back srping will really have arrived in Crested Butte.
