Gunnison, Colorado

Things can change in a hurry.  Instead of hiking in the deserts of Arizona, I am now snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado.  After being released from an overnight visit to a Tucson hospital where I was treated for dehydration and the early stages of starvation, Stephen and I discuss and reevaluate my winter plans.  We have plenty of time to brainstorm options during the long, two-day drive from Arizona to Dallas, Texas.  Stephen suggests I visit our twenty-year-old-son, Nathan, in Gunnison, Colorado where he is renting a cabin for the winter while he takes an EMT course and works as a lift operator at Crested Butte ski resort.  So, after spending a week at home in Dallas washing laundry, recovering from a stomach virus, and repacking the car, I am continuing my quest to experience and learn about all the national park sites in the U.S.  Only now I’m wearing snowshoes instead of hiking boots.

  1. Does west Texas ever end? LOL We are now back in AZ basking in the warmth and sunshine after a loooong drive thru TX. Crested Butte is probably my all time favorite CO ski town. McGills is our favorite place to have breakfast and the ‘Camp 4 Coffee’ is the best. Have fun visiting your son and the area 🙂
