Because of the driving time to Crested Butte, this will be an "overnight" trip.  Rebecca and I plan on leaving for Crested Butte on Friday morning, 20 June, and will be returning mid-day on Sunday, 22 June.  We have reservations at the Nordic Inn in Mount Crested Butte for Friday and Saturday nights.  Tom and Ellen will be joining us for the weekend, and we wanted to extend the invitation to anyone else that might be interested in joining us.  You can join us for the entire weekend, or for just a couple of hours if that is all the time you can spare. 

We'll be spending most of our time photographing Waterfall Creek.  Tom, Ellen, Rebecca and I photographed there last July during our wildflower photography workshop, and vowed to go back earlier in the late spring/early summer this year to catch the runoff from the spring snow melt.  Here are a couple of images from last July:


Lower cascades near the road


Cascades a bit further up the creek

The cascades become even more spectacular the further up the creek you bushwhack.  Tom has an awesome LARGE print in his living room from our trip there in July.

If we have extra time, we will also look for any "early season" wildflowers that might be out in late June.  (Mid July is the best time for wildflowers in Crested Butte.)

So, this is an open invitation to anyone else that might be interested in joining us for the weekend.  Just send us an email or respond to this thread if you are interested.
