We planned to start the day with motorcycle maintenance but instead we wrote in our journals and sipped coffee at Wanderlust Hostel for 3 hours before heading to Crested Butte. A free bus from Gunnison took us 30 miles north to Han’s old mountain town.
We napped in parks, ate and drank at cafes, test rode bicycles, watched little kids play soccer and strolled the streets under the slopes of Mt Crested Butte, Mt Emmons, Mt Teocalli, and Gothic Mountain.
A few hours later we took the bus back to Gunnison and changed our oil, cleaned our air filters, and tinkered on the bikes until dark.
We cozied in the hostel, made dinner, and watched Shawshank Redemption before dozing off.
An unexpected stop of leisurely fun.
