Thanks. More photos here: http://hilljunkie.blogspot.com/2017/09/co-day-4-lupine-paradise-basin-trail.html
Love Crested Butte! Dear Creek loop is my favorite. My 27 year old daughter has lived there the last 3 years and I have ridden almost all the trails with her (pre Strava for me). She is soon moving back east to Vermont, so not sure I will get out again. But, more time at Kingfom Trails in VT
On my "must do" list, Doug. Thanks for sharing photos.
Mark - I like Deer Creek too. Not as shuttle-able, fewer people and great views of the wilderness. There are still a few trails I haven't hit, but I think I've covered most of the popular ones. Have you been on Teocali since they reconstructed it a couple years ago?
