Finally we arrived!

Telluride sits within a gorgeous box canyon in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. The drive in is incredible and seems to get better and better the further in you go.

We found our home for the next 4 nights, Hotel Telluride and checked in. The hotel is tucked just off the Main Street and captured the rustic lodge as only a ski resort can.

The location was perfect. We could walk to everything in town: restaurants, hikes, mountain biking, etc. and the people who worked there went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. It is funny, I felt like everyone who lived in Telluride was so proud of their small town and they wanted to make sure that you, as a visitor, had the best experience ever and took advantage of everything that the town has to offer. Well, the town and people of Telluride certainly won Matt and I over.

We filled our days with incredible adventures and went to bed every night exhausted. But more on that later…
