Crestone, a small southwestern Colorado town, has become a new age, spiritual center and a place for quiet refuge.
A friend of my mother’s owns a B&B in Crestone, nested against the base of Mt. Crestone, one of Colorado’s fourteeners.
Half way through a hike up through the San Luis Valley on the way to a Stupa, we came across a river detailed with Buddhist prayer flags and this small shrine. Bright, spiritual, beautiful.
