I Have the Cure for Heat Exhaustion! | An Update from Crested Butte!
The nation is experiencing a crazy heat wave–108 degrees is way, way too hot. You don’t want to see me in heat like that, this mountain girl can’t handle it. The good news is that you can escape the heat and come to Crested Butte! It was a high of 80 today but that is cool compared to 108. The fresh mountain air, lakes, rivers and wildflowers will make you feel much better. Plus, it cools down to 40’s and 50’s at night which is the perfect temperature for a campfire and s’mores. I spent last Sunday with my family on the Slate River and we found a great swimming hole, it was the perfect way to spend a hot day (for Crested Butte)! Let me know if you need any recommendations of fun ways to cool off this weekend! Check out my driving tour of Skyland for some options of water front properties!
