Between the town of Crested Butte and the ski resort of Mt. Crested Butte is a turnoff called Washington Gulch.
As you drive Washington Gulch there is a short trail that takes you to beautiful Long Lake.
It is huge. And Beautiful. And at risk of being sold to developers. The Crested Butte Land Trust is spearheading an initiative to raise $3 million to facilitate a major land exchange that will save the lake. It is over half way to it's goal. It is a complicated land exchange but it looks as tho Long Lake will be saved. Contribute! 970-349-1206
