A change of scene. The San Miguel Mountains, from Lizard Head on the far left, to Sunshine, to 14’er Wilson Peak on the far right. Hiding behind are 14’ers, El Diente and Mount Wilson. Been there; done those; lived to tell. Today, however, we will play it safe, be content with a leisurely stroll around Telluride and view them from afar.
Bobbie and I drove over to Telluride last weekend in a misguided effort to hook up with Zionsville, Indiana friends John Q. and Joalenn. Turns out they were hiking Bear Creek, and missed our calls and email warnings.
Like Lovely Ouray, Telluride is located in a boxed canyon… but that’s about where the similarities end. Building lots in Ouray start around 100 k; building lots in Telluride start at 1 million. You can’t touch a Telluride Victorian for less than 2 to 3 million, and if its been restored you can add 5 million to that.
