On our way home from our week-long vacation in Ouray, we decided to take a small detour and visit Telluride.
Incredibly gorgeous, tucked away in the mountains, with that “old time mountain town” feel.
I had never visited before, although I flew into the airport during one of my CAP mountain flying camps. The airport is a bit challenging; the west end is affectionately known as “the ski jump”
Lots of cute things as well – check out the tires on these bicycles:
And, of course, there is the “pooch parking”!
For the week of Christmas of 2013, we rented The Hill House in Ouray, CO. Everyone was able to be there, even if for just a few days. On Christmas day, we all went snow shoeing near Ironton Park, just south of Ouray.
