CPW is headed to Crested Butte
Plans are in the works for a CPW summer outing to Crested Butte, Colo., Aug. 9-12. Known as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado, Crested Butte is nestled in the Gunnison Valley, about a five-hour drive from Denver (three hours if you take Cottonwood Pass west of Buena Vista).
A block of rooms has been reserved for CPW at Old Town Inn, 708 6th St., for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights for $164/night for two people. The family-owned inn is at the entrance to the walkable mountain town, and the rate includes a hearty continental breakfast and fresh-baked cookies each afternoon.
Watch for more news about specific events and registration deadlines to be announced in June.
