Western Colorado is beautiful. Mom, Soapy Smith Duck and I, Zeb the Duck, drove to Redstone, Colorado. Redstone is on the Crystal River. Yesterday we showed you the coke ovens and today we will show you the town.
We went into town and had to stop at the Redstone Art Gallery.
Look at these items of wood.
This is Natural Top Tamarisk Burl with some turquoise. Richard Fitzgerald created them. We love wood. This oil painting, Fall River Refuge, was my favorite.
Cecy Turner painted this one.
Redstone is a great town for tourists and residents. We saw hotels and this house was available.
The back yard reaches to the Crystal River. What a great place to live. Then we saw the company store.
This store looks more like a large home.
We like Redstone. Walking through town, the windows in the Church at Redstone sure got our attention.
White Stallion, by Vicki Branson, is sculpted from beautiful Colorado marble.
This marble is from the nearby Yule Marble mine in Marble, Colorado.
Redstone, Colorado is a little south of Glenwood Springs, in the once isolated Crystal Valley, on the Crystal River. The mountains are spectacular. This road through town is leaving the area of the art gallery, hotels and company store.
We think you would like Redstone. We did and we want to return soon. For more information on the Redstone Art Gallery visit www.redstoneart.com
