On Saturday, the girls went to the farmers market in Gunnison then we went for a drive up to Pitkin - founded in 1879, and is said to be Colorado's first mining camp west of the Continental Divide. Unlike Tin Cup, which has mostly original buildings, Pitkin is more of a modern residential town (full time and seasonal) with a few of the older buildings - I can see why folks would want a summer home there. It is located at the end of another pretty valley and since it's 1000 feet lower it wasn't as cold as Tin Cup.
It was very good with plenty of Cajun flavor (even though it didn't look like a lot of spices before I added the shrimp to them).
I thought my Stromboli was very good for a small town in the CO mountains and the girls enjoyed theirs as well.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
