We woke up excited to visit Crested Butte during it’s peak wildflower season, I had seen online that Crested Butte was hosting a wildflower festival this weekend.
We started our day by driving from Gunnison to Crested Butte then up to the Peanut Lake area for a hike to see the wildflowers.
We did the Uper/lower Loop hike and loved it so much!
There were meadows full of flowers and stands of Aspen Trees.
The views were amazing.
After our hike we went into historic Crested Butte for some time at a playground.
Then on to find ice cream.
Humphry enjoyed lots of attention.
We decided to go check out the camping nearby to scout out spots for next summer.
We stumbled upon Lake Irwin and spent some time playing in the water.
We are hoping to get a \spot next July here but you need to reserve it six months in advance.
Then we drove back to Gunnison for pizza before a little climbing in our campsite.
This is one of Cannon’s favorite campsites!
