In the small park just outside of town is a wonderful metal warrior and dragon sculpture, ~15 ft. tall. Even with two kids, amazingly we never stopped to look at it up close; too busy hiking and biking.

A strange sculpture of a knight and a dragon south of Crested Butte on Hwy 135. The objects appear to be made of stainless steel. Sorry for the quality of this pic, but that's what I get for using one of those new fangled digital cameras.
