The Crested Butte Wildflower Festival Has Begun

The Crested Butte Wildflower Festival has started today, July 8th until July 17th, 2022.

The Wildflower Festival began in 1986 through the efforts of a few insightful Crested Butte locals who envisioned a wildflower celebration in one of the most picturesque valleys in Colorado. The Festival has grown into a summer-long season with over 300 events offered by over 60 instructors, tour guides, and volunteers.

Yes Crested Butte is The Wildflower Capital of Colorado

Once again, Crested Butte ranks as one of the top places in the USA to view wildflowers.  Every year is a little different, making every year a unique experience of Mother Natures gift of color.  Rent a Jeep and we’ll get you to the coolest spots to indulge your wildflower desires.  For example, the photo above was taken from one of our customers while on a wildflower hunt.

Here’s a great article on places to view wildflowers:

There’s a New Girl in Town and Her Name is Janet

We have done it again, with two new additions to our fleet this year.  Meet Janet, our newest and nicest Jeep yet.  She has a 2” lift, Rubicon shocks, BF Goodrich T/A 33” tires, leather heated seats and an Alpine stereo and speakers all around.  Making her one incredible ride to get you to the high country.  May you access amazing views, wildflowers, hiking trials, fishing holes or just Jeep’n around one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Camping in the Gunnison National Forest

Here is a great map I got from the Chamber in Gunnison.  It clearly labels all the different camping options in the Gunnison National Forest.  With this years change in the rules, dispersed camping is not allowed in much of the surrounding areas, so it makes sense to book your camping spot months in advance.  This can be done online with the Gunnison National Forest.  Enjoy and please remember, “Camp In and Camp Out.”  Meaning whatever you bring into the forest please make sure to bring back out with you.  Happy Camping!

Paradise Divide and Emerald Lake are Open

The views from Paradise Divide Pass are some of the best in all of Colorado.  Located at the end of the valley, this glacial zone is expansive, as seen in the panoramic photo.  Which encompasses the short version of our go to loop.  After explore here, we recommend our customers go check out Emerald Lake, located past the townsite of Gothic.  These are hands down my two favorite spots in the Crested Butte zone and in all of the Gunnison National Forest.
