I know it's been photographed a million times but I never tire of seeing photos of it and decided to add it to my bucket list. Well, I went to see it on Friday and it didn't disappoint. You should pay a visit to this place, while the Mill is still standing. It's an incredible sight.

The Sunflowers are out in abundance this summer. I took this at 96th & Imboden

Gorgeous!

How do you get to the mill from Marble? I've been as far as the second pond and the road got pretty rough. That was a long time ago, though.

I've also been as close as the top of the pass from the Crested Butte side, but it hasn't been open all the way through in decades.

It's on my life-list for a pretty long time, too.

We took a Razr up to Crystal Mill. It's a 5.2 mile drive on bad to very bad road, but it's worth it.

We don't have an atv. Oh, well, at least I can enjoy beautiful photos of it like yours. That makes your pictures even more important to me. Thanks!

There is an atv rental place right next to the trail. That is where we rented ours. I would never take my vehicle up that track, although plenty do.
