St. Elmo Cabin Weekend

We just got back from a fun weekend getaway in St. Elmo, Colorado. Jon’s grandpa owns a cabin up there that he graciously allows the rest of the family to use any time we so desire.  The cabin is just west of Buena Vista, CO in the coolest little town, and by little, I mean little! In fact, I’m pretty sure no one actually lives in the town any more, save the people that own the Bed and Breakfast. There is probably a total of about 20 buildings in the town itself (just estimating) and many, if not most, are abandoned due to the fact that they were built in the late 1800’s when Colorado mining was at it’s peak. Here’s a website for more info on the town:

Anyway, Jon and I were eager to get up to the cabin one last time before the snow had completely melted so that we could do some x-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. We only saw 4 people while up there – 2 on snowmobiles and another 2 in a Jeep that were heading out of the town after digging their car out of a ditch they managed to get stuck in. Needless to say, it was incredibly peaceful! Here’s a video of some of our adventures, complete with Lisa almost singing her narrative and Jon doing a British narrative for some reason:

And, some pictures too! Enjoy!
