Crested Butte was my favorite stop on the tour last year and this year didn’t was almost a carbon copy. Sunshine, cool people, beautiful mountains, and a spectacular race! Even the drag queen “Girl in Red” came out again….heels and all. A long day of driving (3 hrs in the morning, with another 3 hrs in the evening) we are ready to crash. This year I opted to keep Mount Crested Butte in the shot at the finish line and I’m afraid she might steal the show! Hope you enjoy these two snaps, more to come….
