Have you ever been to Telluride? I'd have to say it must be one of the coziest, friendliest, sweetest towns in existence. I fell head right over heels in love. 

We stayed in the village, so our mode of transportation was the gondola. Gondola here, there, and everywhere. To the market, to town, to dinner, to the mountain. Gondola all day, and night. 

Our first night there we went to a restaurant in the middle of the mountain called Allreds. The elevation there was 10,550. The view was unbelievable!  


The town was...well, take a look. 

Breathtaking, isn't it?

Our friends Freddy and Amy!

Wall Art.

Do you know what my favorite part of this picture is?

No...not the perfectly falling snow.

Or the beautiful view.

Or the two awesome, about to get hot in the hot tub, dudes to my left and right.

Yep! You got it. It's Dave's after ski antenna head!!

From here on out...

Whenever I need a pick me up, I know exactly where to find it!

(I'm so glad Dave doesn't have a blog of his own!!) 

Right Said Fred and his 2 Chickadees

After Avi's accident we decided it might be a good idea to start wearing helmets. I was about to have Dave dip me in this picture, but changed my mind at the last minute for extra safety reasons...aka I'm a super klutz and I could see it going w-r-o-n-g!

There's a run there called See Forever and it's at an elevation of 12,570. Even though the day wasn't clear and was mostly snowy, I just had to get to it before the day was out! We did. Dave wasn't too into a picture, because he wanted to just keep going because it was freezing up there and the wind was really blowing! I rounded everyone up even though, and guess's one of his favorites : ) 

Funny, you can see Amy's arm in Dave's goggles : )

We just had to pause for the cause a few times on the way down.

Some people call the way down Ski Forever.

It cleared up at one point for a little bit : )

My oh patrol and his pup...

I almost died.


  1. You know I live in Denver right?? Let me know when you are in co again!

    1. Oh my GOSH Jenny!!! Am I that absent that I didn't even know that?!? I can't believe it! We were at the Denver airport for a couple hours on the way in, but super quick on the way out!! I would so LOVE to have met you!!

      I would jump at the opportunity to go back. You are so lucky to live there. Maybe we'll get to meet someday, someway : )

  2. Stunning pictures! What a beautiful place to visit.

  3. How cool. I've always thought it would be neato burrito to go to one of these ski towns.....even though we have Timberline Lodge a couple of hours from here. How fun.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! Another place to put on my list to visit someday! Thanks for sharing the photos!

  5. Looks like a great trip! Thank you for posting the photos. I'll probably never get to see any of these places in person. Beautiful photos!
