Road Trip: Creede, Colorado

You must be very tired now of me  posting photos of our Colorado trip, but trust me I am almost done with it. It's just that we explored a lot of places in Colorado last summer that I have some things to share with you just in case you plan on visiting the state. 

Our second to the last destination before heading out of Colorado was this small town surrounded by beautiful scenery and mountains- the town of Creede, Colorado. Now let me share you some photos of this tiny, yet interesting town. 


The moment you come in to town, you are greeted with such a lovely view of the mountains.

One busy town this is. 

Make sure to have a reservation when you plan on staying in town. The rooms were filled, restaurants were busy, the stores were flocked with shoppers, the streets were crowded, just one busy town of Creede, Colorado during the peak of the summer. 

I love this store. They had some really neat things. I was going to buy a beautiful scarf, but I ended up empty handed.

Typical Colorado weather. We came in to town a bit late so all of the rooms are all booked and we had to find a place to stay for the night or we are staying in our vehicle. Luckily, we found  a free campsite and we camped out.

It is an underground museum and store which features all types of rocks and minerals. You can buy some to make your own jewelries and stuff. Just lovely!
There is also an underground tour of the mining area or something like that, which we didn't get to go since our boy was not a fan of it. We were afraid that once we get in to one of those rides that the boy might start to panic or something. He had enough of traveling that he just wanted to run around and play.

It was close when we got there so we had to come back the next day to explore.

This is what he was up to. He was fascinated by all the tamed chipmunks at that area and how they will eat food off of your hands, he did not want to go anywhere, but stay there and feed or force feed them chipmunks. He loved it so much that he was asking us to go back to Colorado and buy a chipmunky (chipmunk).

I just had to take a photo!

Let's explore the town!

Six months pregnant.

Jicky Jack's Cafe
Creede, Colorado.

We had some really good fresh smoothies, but did not like the burritos so much. I think I had the Southwest burrito since it had rice and some veggies I like, but was not too crazy about the taste. I was pregnant and hungry I could not wait for another minute I had to eat.

Ops! Excuse my outfit. It was cold and wet hat to get warm and comfortable.

He was so hungry the next morning, he took care of himself and had some wild rice and beef steak with mushrooms for breakfast. The best steak we have ever had. So good!

One muddy Jeep!

Since it rains a lot in Colorado, our poor Jeep was really dirty. 
This was our last day and we headed our way to the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve. Hope you like the virtual tour of Creede, Colorado. Have you been there before?
