Marble s a tiny town located in Gunnison County in a valley of the upper Crystal River along the Elk Mountains. It is accessible by a gravel road from Colorado State Highway 133. The town is located on the north side of McClure Pass, and is thus somewhat separated from the rest of the county. As of the 2000 census, the population of Marble was 105. The town is noted as being the location of a historic Yule Marble quarry that began operations in the late 19th century (and from which the town got its name.) The marble from the quarry is considered to be of exceptional quality and was used for parts of the Lincoln Memorial, as well as buildings in San Francisco and New York City. The towns real claim to fame, however, was for largest, single piece of marble ever quarried. A 100-ton block, squared to 56 tons, was used to create the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Marble has become a summer tourist destination and seven sites within the town are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Marble Historical Society Museum, which is housed in a 1910 schoolhouse, provides self-guided tour maps of the historic downtown. Also, nearby Beaver Lake is excellent for rainbow and brook trout fishing. There are lots of four-wheel driving opportunities in the area and Schofield Pass, which heads east from Marble takes you to the ghost town of Crystal.

Marble Weather & Climate

Central Colorado has a more complex climate than most states in the United States. Even places a few miles apart can experience entirely different weather depending on the topography of the area. The valleys are classified as a semi-arid, continental climate, which becomes a mountain or alpine climate at higher elevations. Humid microclimates may also exist in some places. Abundant sunshine and low humidity is typical in all areas. Summers are mild to warm, and thunderstorms can cause a sudden drop in temperature. Winters are cold and snowy, especially in the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountains. Solar radiation penetrates the thin atmosphere high in the mountains, which results in very pleasant temperatures during the winter. This is why skiers are often pictured in very light clothing, even though they're surrounded by snow.
