FYI - 2013 Crested Butte Wildflower Festival

  • Jul 7, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Save the Date! July 8-14, 2013 in Crested Butte, Colorado.

Join me for a few days of wildflower splendor in the charming, historic town of Crested Butte, the official Wildflower Capital of Colorado!  

So much to do including hiking, rafting, 4x4 tours, yoga, garden tours, photography classes, art & cooking classes, gardening, birds and butterflies!  Registration and class schedule opens in April.

Lodging:   I'm staying at the Elk Mountain Lodge July 7-11.  Contact them for availability at (800)[masked] or (970)[masked].  Check out other lodging options...

And...After you've RSVP'd here, please sign up for the individually posted events so I know who to expect.  

Please use this link to the discussion thread of what everyone is doing for lodging, carpooling...[masked]

Carpooling:  Please email people directly through their profile to work out carpooling.  It's uncertain if everyone is commiting to July 7-11 and where people are staying.  So rather than get a bunch of comments going this early, please contact people directly to inquire about carpools.

Activities Planned During Festival:  My plan is to hike everyday to see and photograph wildflowers.  In addition, I always sign up for a back country tour and want to take a dinner float trip.  If these interest you, please RSVP for each event separately.  Easy/Moderate hikes between 3-8 miles will be announced at a later date - it all depends on where the best flowers can be found, and we won't know that till closer to the date! 

Meals/Drinks/Etc...We can't have every meal together as a group, but we'll try!  I have lots of ideas of restaurants, coffee shops, etc and will talk more about this when we all meet in Crested Butte! 

See you there!

    Carolyn Gensler and I are driving up there Sat and spending one night (will drive home Sunday because we both have to work Monday). So we'll see you up there from mid-day Sat until mid-day Sunday. We are staying at the Elevation Hotel. Is anyone else planning to be there Saturday or is everyone else arriving on Sunday?

      Not sure but I think most are arriving on Sunday in time for the dinner float and hiking during the week. So we probably will miss seeing each other. njoy your your trip and hope to e you another time .

    There has been a last minute change and now Pam has a spot for a roommate, if anyone still needs a place to stay. Staying at the Forest Queen hotel:129 Elk Ave Sun-Thurs check out. They have a website to view their rooms. Let Pam know.

    Workshop Schedule opens online tomorrow 4/10. Take a look and see if there's something that interests you! If you're not going on the 4x4 tour Weds 7/10, that might be a good day to schedule a workshop so you don't miss out on hiking on Monday & Tuesday!
