Affectionately Known As Crusty Butt

Catching title, isn't it?
This is the story of our adventure up to the resort town (yes, I think it's becoming a trend) of Crested Butte, Colorado. We met up with my parents here in Montrose and drove together up to Gunnison, home of Western State College, where my brother Matt is a freshman. After swinging by Matt's dorm to pick him up, we headed up to the mountain town. We strolled leisurely thru town stopping at an artist co-op (I saw so many pretty things!), toy store (see picture & description below) and a dog/cat supply store that boasted treats such as gingerbread men and Boston Terrier Cream Pies. I wanted to eat lunch at a place called Pitas in Paradise (my brother was even on board with me), but we ended up going to a chinese place where I tried Thai Ice Tea for the first time. It was sweet and yet, a bit smokey.
After lunch, we strolled back down to the car, looking at Crested Butte reality along the way. A shack on the outskirts of town goes for a much as a nice home here in Montrose!
We wrapped up our trip with some TCBY and a snooze (don't worry, my mom was driving) on the way home. Ahh, it's so nice to have these little getaways!
