Keller Pass is always worth the drive. Winter on Snowmobiles or Summer Drive, you will always have breathtaking views. Great photo spots!

Lake Irwin is a hidden gem off Kebler Pass on the Crested Butte side. Lots of paddle boarders, swimmers and kayakers enjoying the beautiful July weather. We continued on the road all the way to the top and are so glad we did. Stunning vistas.

On a trip with the youth of our church, we were coming through this pass to visit Crested Butte. It is gorgeous w streams, lakes, overviews, mountains with trees, rocks, snow, and more. If you can get here, do! And enjoy the scenery and beauty.

Make the turn to see Irwin lake! The lake is a beautiful hidden gem in the mountains. Great picnic or camping spot or kayaking on the smooth water.
