It has high desert mixed with alpine environs and small town quaintness - it hasn't changed much in 30 - 40 years, except for the population being a little larger. The people are nice and genuinely friendly (a place where you would want to raise kids!) - laid back - no BIG CITY influences. There are more tourists these days, but that is because Gunnison and the surrounding areas have such a large offering of outdoor recreation activities. What draws us to this area?
