I just wanted to post a few pics of our 2011 family vacation in Telluride Colorado.
Special thanks to an amazing friend who offered our family his amazing cabin for the week.
What Makes Telluride Unique? Telluride is a small ski resort in the southwest corner of Colorado. Tucked away in a box canyon, surrounded by the mighty peaks of the San Juans, Telluride started off as a mining town in the 1800’s and later on, in 1973, became a ski resort and in the warmer months an epic mountain bike destination.
This year was special because we were able to take my daughter and her husband Adam with us for some much needed R & R.
Our bunch hiked, biked, rafted, canoed, fished, shopped, reflected, and rested.
This is a pic of us after we put our bikes on the gondola and made it up to the ski area that is converted into a mtn bike mecca during the summer months.
The Riverside trail is an amazing addition to the Telluride trail system.
These two pics pretty much sums up why I enjoyed this years vacation. 🙂
We ventured out on Trout Lake for some fishing/exploring….Adam and Tash pretty much wished they would have had a canoe instead of a ducky to float in.
Brenda my life long floating/fishing partner.
The San Miguel River rafting.
Just some views from around the area.
A couple of pics of the meadow below the cabin were we stayed.
Bridal Vail Falls – the tallest waterfall in Colorado.
The grass is greener in Telluride.
What an amazing place – what an amazing week.
I am rested and grateful.
