Join us for this series of tours around Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley featuring historian Duane Vandenbusche.  This tour will be centered around the history of The Black Canyon. Topics will include the 9-10 resorts along the river between gunnison and lake city bridge, the Lake City Bridge and building of the Blue Mesa Reservoir, Pioneer Point, 1901 and the search for a site for Gunnison Tunnel, and special guest Bruce Bartleson will talk about the geology of the area.

The tour will officially begin at 9am, however you are invited for a roundtable breakfast session with Duane beginning at 8am.  Breakfast is not included in the cost of this ticket, but lunch and transport is included.  Duane will go over his topics for the day during his roundtable session from 8am-9am.  All participants, whether joining for the breakfast roundtable or not, will meet at The Almont at the latest 9am.  At 9am, we will head out in the van to make stops along the way.  Van transportation will be included with this tour, however, you are welcome to transport yourself if you choose to do so.  A sack-lunch will also be provided with the tour: sandwich, chips or another side, and a drink.  Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements so we can accommodate your breakfast and lunch.  The tour will end around 3pm.
