We spent five days in Telluride in early July. We'd never been before and we pretty much fell in love with it. It's a small, mountain town nestled down in a box canyon with gorgeous views in every direction.
We did a lot of swimming--John found a hotel for us that had an outdoor pool (rare in CO) and I think the kids went every single day!
We found a mexican restaurant--La Cocina de Luz-- that was SO amazing we ate there twice for dinner! We also loved Baked and Brown Dog Pizza. Also had some great bar-b-que and and one night John and I went out for dessert without the kids! Sadly, I can't remember the names of those places!
We had a great week and we'll be back for sure. We'd love to ski there sometime...better yet, we'd love to figure out how to live there year-round!
