Curecanti, Gunnison and Crested Butte

On our journey from Durango to Montana we wanted to visit parts of Colorado we had never seen before.   Curecanti National Recreation Area is located near Gunnison Colorado.  It is home to several reservoirs and is also near Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.  We visited that area several years ago to see the Black Canyon and take a boat trip on Morrow Reservoir.

This time we stayed near Blue Mesa Reservoir, the largest reservoir in Colorado.  We had a beautiful hike to the Dillon Pinnacles.   Gunnison was nearby and we visited the local Farmer’s Market and went to a local theater production called “I Hate Hamlet”.  It was great fun in a very small theater in a historic building.  From Gunnison we also drove to Crested Butte, a famous ski town with another  great market.

    My sister lives in Gunnison and hiked to the bottom of the Black Canyon a few months ago. Also my niece has Gunnison Gardens. She still has her geology company, but devotes more of her time to the gardens. She also raises chickens, has several types of eggs, (some colored). She also goes to Crested Butte. I am so proud of her.
    Love reading your adventures. You both look great.
