When tectonic plates smash into each other, they push the Earth’s crust higher and higher, forming mountains. Some mountain ranges, like the Himalayas, are still growing. Others, like the Appalachians, saw their heyday hundreds of millions of years ago and have been weathering away ever since. Volcanoes also form mountains and periodically erupt – scraping clear the landscape. Carbondale is an arts” town, and is a central hub of arts activity in the Roaring Fork Valley from Aspen to Rifle. Our Mountain Fair celebrates art in all forms of expression, and is known for its diverse range, non-stop entertainment, great food and amazing spirit. Our juried fair is continually looking for interesting new musical acts, handmade goods and food.
We have updated the fees and camp schedule on the Forms page. Some of the lodging rates at the campground have gone up, while the rates for large families have gone down. Overall, prices are much lower this year than last year because we are going back to a 3-night schedule this year. Registration forms coming soon to this blog! Already looking forward to those crisp mornings in the Sacramento mountains !
The fun here doesn’t stop when the snow melts. Hunter Mountain is a true four-season resort offering a wide variety of events, activities and accommodations year-round! Hunter Mountain is home to some of the best festivals in the area all summer long, with great music, food, and culture!
On a mountain, weather and the organisms that live there rapidly change as elevation increases. As temperatures get colder, tree species change, and then become scarcer before disappearing entirely. At the top there may be nothing but snow and ice. But even these bleak landscapes are home to a diverse array of plants and animals adapted for that environment.
Yesterday at 8:10 A.M. our power went out. It had been out during the night for a couple hours but this time after several hours it did not come back on. We finally had restored power this morning about 26 hours later. We learned that our generator does work for keeping the refrigerator and freezer going so we did not lose any food.
