Creede , Adults only escape
December 7, 2017
We arrived to our friends summer house for 4 days of peaceful time in the mountains , no kids ,good food and good variety of alcohol.
The movie The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp was filmed there .
The town is surrounded by old Cooper and Silver mines which was main source of income in the town old days , now main income is based on tourism.
We took the ATV thru the mountains , between the mines and amazing waterfalls and the view from 10000+ ft is amazing , forgot to mention the town base is at 8000 ft .
It takes a while to adjust to the thin air at 8000+ ft so few fun facts :
Running is tough , was able to run 2 miles but not easy .
It takes for ever to Grill/BBQ outside and probably from same reason gas mileage driving there was significantly better .
Encounter with animals is also great ,we were not lucky to see bears but the Deer where amazing to watch.
