Crested Butte Lodging for Hikers & Mountain Bikers

The Crested Butte area is well known for all kinds of great outdoor activities for all levels of activities. An area rich in history from the old mining days there is a plethora of things to see and do and hikes that will take you from mountain meadows up over 14, thousand feet into the thin air of Colorado.

For hikers this area is has an amazing Colorado hiking trail system that offers all kinds of different levels of hiking from the mundane to the extreme. I discovered the area many years ago when we went in search of the Maroon Bells. From Crested Butte there is a trail that takes you up and over to the Maroon Bells into Aspen, and you can stay the night in Aspen and then hike back the next day, it is not for the faint of heart as it goes over some pretty high passes. For those that can’t hike you can drive a mountain 4-wheel drive road over or ride your mountain bike. The window of opportunity is pretty short though and you usually have to wait until about July or August for the snow to melt, right before the next winter snows.

The last time I was in the area, and I have been a few time, we were a group of girls hiking together. We chose to stay at the Nordic Inn, which has a couple of Crested Butte vacation homes. We rented the Nordic Chalet and that was just perfect for us; we could sit up in the evenings and chat and visit, it felt just like a home away from home. The best part was that morning we would head out to the local bakery and picked up warm croissants and fresh coffee then with the fruit we had in the fridge we would munch out on a great breakfast before taking to the trail. The little kitchen made it possible for us to make our lunches for the trail and we were glad of the wine in the fridge when we came home. The living room was large and sunny and had great views of the mountains all around the area. We vowed to come back again and stay with some family in this Colorado vacation home.


Galveston Texas, Convention Center

The company is sending is on a trip down to Galveston Texas for a sales meeting at this Galveston Hotel, Spa and Convention Center; the Moody Gardens Hotel. The rooms we will be staying in look nice and luxurious, and because we need a family vacation we decided that we would all go together and take advantage of the nice weather down in southern Texas. We have booked into one of the Jacuzzi Suites

".....with an expanded living area, green marble bathroom and a balcony overlooking the Pyramids and Galveston Bay."

The convention is for a couple of days and so we are staying on a little longer to soak up some sun and so we can explore the area. The rather large pyramids that we can see from the room house different types of tropical rainforests, and aquariums.

" Moody Gardens® invites guests to dive into four oceans of the world...... Large touch tanks and jewel tanks feature the vivid beauty of the ocean world and provide underwater classrooms and learning opportunities for people of all ages"

The rainforest pyramid is 10 stories high and studies the diverse rainforests of the world. They are full of birds, fish and mammals in a tropical environment. The Bat Cave sounds pretty interesting.

There is a lot for the kids to do and see as well. With a 4D there that is currently playing Spongbob Squarepants, kids camps with lots of different programs going on throughout the year.

Sounds like we might be able to leave the kids at camp for a day while we enjoy the beach or even the spa at the hotel.
