Crystal Mill in Autumn

Crystal Mill in Autumn

Photographer: Jason Hill

The town of Crystal, Colorado is hard to reach. The only road to the (very) small town is a high clearance 4x4 route that takes some time to navigate. I've driven in, and also backpacked there from the town of Marble. The mill is just outside the town, and is a popular photography spot for those putting the time and energy in to getting that far down the road. Those with very serious off-road vehicles can continue along the road to Crested Butte.
