    Crested Butte 2006 with Lots of Pictures!

    by chadman » Mon Dec 17, 2007 10:09 pm

    In 2006 we took a trip to Crested Butte, but I never got around to posting any pictures. Thought it would be nice to share! I just posted a trip report from our Ouray trip a few weeks ago, link below.

    You can also check out my web page for some more pictures on the vacations link below for Crested Butte:

    We had a blast in Crested Butte! It did have a lot of single track and one of the few places I have been to that had a bunch of trails for dirt bikes only, NO ATV’s. Some of the single tracks were a little difficult and had some mean switch backs. I love the single track, but found myself having to concentrate a lot more on the trail while riding and it was little harder to enjoy the scenery. I think if I was a little better rider I could have even enjoyed the trip more. If you love single track this place is great! I have gotten a little better since this trip and would like to tackle some of these trails again soon. I would like to make a trip that would cover both Ouray and Crested Butte. Both places have so much to offer! Crested Butte is a little harder to get lost, we did a few times. Thanks to Steve, or navigator, we managed to find our way out every time! GPS, came in handy for these trails!

    Ok, enough rambling! Time for the pictures!


    We rented an RV for the 20 hour drive

    Colleen takes a swim. This was really a bad crash. It does not look deep, but it was. Both her and the bike were completely under water. You can see I dropped my on the other side to run and save her. My crew got the cameras out to take pictures! We had to take the bike apart here to get the water out of the carb, airbox, and cylinder. Then had to change out the oil about 4 times to get the water out.
