A FRIEND OF MINE WHO IS A PART OF THE BLUEGRASS BAND, FIRESIDE COLLECTIVE, EMBARKED ON A JOURNEY A COUPLE MONTHS AGO FROM THE OUTER BANKS TO THE GREAT STATE OF COLORADO WITH THE FINAL DESTINATION BEING TELLURIDE.
THEIR MOTIVATION: TO PLAY FOR THE DEVOTE BLUE GRASS FANS AT THE FAMED BLUEGRASS MUSIC FESTIVAL.
MISSION ACCOMPLISH, THEY ROCKED THE HOUSE AND LIVED OUT THEIR DREAM - ALL WHILE PLAYING GIGS FROM NASHVILLE, WICHITA, TO KANSAS CITY! I AM SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF YALL :) YOU CAN LEARN MORE OF THEIR ADVENTURE HERE.
As I followed their adventure to the Centennial State, my desire to visit Telluride, Colorado has only increased and I want to share with you all the beauty of Telluride!
Two Towns. One Amazing Experience.
It is a place of legend, nestled at the end of a lush canyon and surrounded by some of Colorado’s most rugged peaks. Nowhere else in the country, or perhaps the world, does such a place exist. To some, we are known for incredible alpine skiing. To others, summers full of cultural events and endless outdoor activities. By everyone, we are embraced for our authentic mountain character, unpretentious attitude, and celebration of four seasons of adventure in the most beautiful spot of the Rocky Mountain high country. source
TELLURIDE, COLORADO IS THE EPITOME OF ADVENTURE FOR ALL OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS, AND ALSO THE MECCA FOR ARTS AND CULTURE.
Telluride, Colorado go to list:
NO MATTER THE SEASON, A VACATION TO TELLURIDE WILL BE SURE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A NEW FOUND APPRECIATE FOR LIFE.
For a winter escape...
If skiing is your thing, you can go alpine, nordic, or helicopter and cat skiing - and the best part of Telluride is there are no lift lines!
If you rather stay off the slopes take part in winter fly fishing, glider rides, horseback and sleigh rides, ice skating, art classes, snow shoeing, and/or snowmobiling!
For the best summer of your life - visit Telluride, Colorado...
After all the snow has melted, you will find the picture perfect town has much more to offer than just winter activities! I think the official Visit Telluride website says it best...
Ask any local on the gondola and they’ll probably tell you, they came to Telluride for the skiing and stayed for the summers. There is no place quite like Telluride in the summer. You can find a lifetime’s worth of outdoor activities to do. Kids float through town on inner tubes, while cyclists and hikers head off in every direction. People wander the galleries and shops, or park themselves on the benches along Main Street and watch the bustle of daily activity flow by. And above it all, incredible azure skies inspire you to breathe life in full. It’s a good reason the days are long because that’s the only way to fit everything in.
If that doesn't have you itching to go....or move there - you must be just flat out crazy! There is a little bit of everything for everyone, making it a fantastic family vacation. The kids can swim, hike, shop, play...and the best part of all that is the adults will enjoy it too!
Are you a festival junkie? Do you plan trips you entire vacation around them?
