Day 138: Black Canyon of the Gunnison, NP > Telluride, CO

I woke up and took an invigorating run along the canyon edge. When I returned John had breakfast for me and was ready to head towards Telluride. We drove into the mountains again & stopped to take 100s of pictures along the way. We got to Telluride around 1:30PM & went straight to “Baked” on the recommendation of Aunt Deb & Uncle Larry who were married here a decade ago. Then, we meandered around town & through the Farmer’s Market, acclimating to our surroundings. We took the free Gondola up to the top of the mountain and hiked down through shedding Aspen trees on the Ridge Trail. After a few miles of stretching our legs, we hit up Telluride Brewing Company for a few adult beverages. The beers there really were top notch. We especially enjoyed the Barrel Aged Freaky Fish. We met a guy at the bar & made plans to meet him for dinner back in town. We at mexican food and chatted about the best of Colorado. Then, John & I excused ourselves to sleep on the streets – exhausted from a few great days.
