This Week in the Butte
As the sun rose over Mt. Crested Butte friends and family gathered to witness the great eclipse of 2017. While the moon only covered 89% of the sun, the air temperature dropped and the aspens cast beautiful crescent shapes. It was a memorable day and we hope you continue to make more memories with your loved ones this week in the Butt!
