This is a magnificent piece of sculpture, what fun! That looks like a lovely place and snow on the mountains is great! Clear blue sky, you must have had a grand time.

Isn't it a neat sculpture - I don't think anyone could miss it as on the main road into town. Crested Butte was one of the more eclectic, low-key fun ski areas that we visited. We were there with the locals and all the elk, deer hunters as is an off time of the year. We stayed out of the woods and had a great time exploring - some cold, gray days but also some great days with lots of blue skys and always the grand snow-covered mountains. Makes you wish you lived there year round. But guess the locals are glad you don't!

Sounds like you had a great time! I love the dragon, thanks for sharing it with us.

Thanks for your comments. It is always great to get out a exploring with a camera in hand. But at the moment I enjoy looking out the window more. How cold are you? Was 30 below here this morning - we are all spoiled from the warmer winters the last few years - I am just glad I am not any further north than I am at the moment.

I finally found one of your other galleries and had a quick look around - bookmarked it for when I have more time one night.

You are too kind Joy! I've been spending a bit of time here too, and you've got some great ones!

Now that I have finally got some winter photos for Jean posted and answered all of her great comments - she really is an ambassador - maybe I will have time one night to look around your site some more.

For now it is past bedtime!

joy I can remember where my granfather had his vinyard fifty years ago but I didn't remember seeing this photo. It looks better now :) I gave it a yellow star.

:D I know the feeling! The crazy thing is sometimes I will forget where I am in someone's gallery and go back and almost comment twice on the same photo.

Thanks for the Y! I am following in Margot's tracks and trying to go back through my gallery and look for Y, etc and tag them. Is interesting to see how it all works. Before I had not really made a note of them other than appreciating that someone liked the photo enough to save it.

Well I'd better totter off for bed!
