The overall Gunnison and Crested Butte area real estate market has continued strong growth throughout 2015.  The market is up almost 15% over 2014 for the upper  East River valley.

There are still plenty of fall colors to see in the Crested Butte Area! This list of 5 Must-See Places for Crested Butte Fall Color is a good start for any leaf looker. The list was compiled by local photographer, Dusty Emerson and judging by his photos, he knows all the sweet spots. Of course, Kebler Pass (home of the world’s largest aspen grove) is on the list in addition to other nearby areas. Many of them require little to no travel from the heart of town and my personal favorite, The Castles, can be seen clearly from Ohio Pass. The peak has passed in some areas, but you may still be able to catch a glimpse of that bright yellow hue alongside the golds and deep oranges this weekend. The amazing Crested Butte Fall Color won’t stay much longer, so make plans to see them soon. Grab you...

It’s that time of year again. Colorado’s fall colors are nearing their peak and there are some great spots for a front row seat to the vibrant colors! Kebler Pass, just outside of Crested Butte is home to the world’s largest aspen grove. It also happens to be the second largest living organism on Earth- definitely worth checking out. If you need more leaf looking, there are nine other places on this list of 10 Best Places To See Colorado’s Stunning Fall Colors. You may get better views if you steer clear of passes high above 11,000 feet elevation, as you will find yourself high above the trees. Beware of stopping vehicles and pedestrians with cameras…have fun out there!If you re interested in the worlds largest living organism, it’s a honey fungus in Oregon.
