This weekend I went up to the mountains with some friends. My dear friend Season, from Whitman, has a cabin in the mountains near Creede, Colorado, and invited us up to spend the long weekend with her family. It was lovely. The first morning we were there, we went up to Wolf Creek Pass to backcountry ski with Season’s dad who has been skiing in these mountains for 30 years. Here are some photos from our weekend:
This is the lovely cabin in the mountains where we spent our weekend. Season’s parents built this from the ground up during the winter of 2004. It’s an incredibly homey, welcoming place and was such a fun home base for the weekend.
We spent the next day in downtown Creede enjoying pond hockey, small town bars, and the incredible scenery. They filmed parts of Lone Ranger up this canyon.
After pond hockey, we went over to both bars in Creede and watched the playoffs. Pretty excited that the 49er’s are going to the playoffs and I’m pretty excited to watch two brothers face off on national TV.
Season’s cabin is near the banks of the Rio Grande. It’s so beautiful there, especially this time of year when there aren’t loads of people everywhere.
