Oh Telluride, I will move to you one day…

Telluride Mountain VillageWe have been back for a while but have not had a second to rest, let alone look at my pictures. In hindsight I am glad I made the trip to Telluride with the group. Wifey, Ed, and Mel would have had a blast without me. I am sure that my presence increased their good times tenfold. If I am wrong, I’ll never know it. I knew I had to drive Wifey to the airport Saturday morning. The decision was to park at short-term or long-term parking. I had a plane ticket, but things were just too busy at work. The 10-day forecast was actually pretty mild compared to the previous month. I decided last minute to go west. Glad I did. It was amazing. My favorite town in the US, during the perfect week of snow. Telluride had a huge snowstorm the first day we got there and that meant fresh Colorado powder all week. It’s my second favorite kind of fresh powder, next to Telluride from aboveColumbian.

I was able to find a few geocaches around the town, on the mountain, and spent an entire day just wandering aimless through the village and mountain following my GPS machine. Nothing makes a day of rest even more fun and restful than signing geocache logs!

We had great days on the slopes, great meals everyday, and I got a bit of needed rest. Yes I know, poor me. The cold weather here at home came back as soon as I did, and work has been unreal. It’s good, what I always want, but smack in the middle sucks. Before and after I always view “busy” with rose colored glasses.

Anyway, I finally had a chance to go through our pictures and process some. Nothing over the top fantastic, but they are pictures of Telluride, how could I go wrong? Clicky HERE

See Ya Forever

Tonight we met the only President who matters

Tonight on the gondola ride from Mountain Village to the valley town of Telluride the most exciting thing in the world happened. We were riding with the newly appointed President of Telluride. That’s right, the President. We had a nice chat about everything important. He told us the story of how he was just appointed the new President of Telluride and made it sound like he fell ass-backward into the position. I am sure he was being modest. Modesty is one of those traits I most value in a new best friend. I made sure he knew that meeting him was more impressive to me than meeting the President of America. I took way more joy in this acquaintance. I am pretty sure Greg Peck and I will be having dinner tomorrow to discuss the direction we both would like to see Telluride moving. I found some proof on the internets that he was not lying, CLICKY. And then I asked him to be my LinkedIn friend. Too stalkery?
