The fall colors at Round Mountain start in late August and continue through September.
A solar heated straw bale greenhouse is electrically powered by solar photovoltaic panels and a wind generator. The greenhouse and gardens at the base of Round Mountain are only 10 miles down valley from the majestic Mt. Crested Butte.
Throughout the summer kids from Stepping Stones Children's Center Adventure Club learn about organic gardening, solar cooking and free range chickens.
