Combine my 2 favorite activities, and the luckiest boy in the world ends up having more fun than shooting at a barrel of monkeys. There are a few geocaches on Telluride Mountain that are meant for non-winter months. I found that to be a challenge and I accepted. At one point I waded through neck deep snow and created an actual igloo for myself searching for a dumb piece of Tupperware in the woods. I could not have had more fun. Trips over, time to go home now.
I also saw this amazing store while wandering around town. Where were these places when I was younger! Dammit!
It feels like 100 years ago, but was actually only 2 1/2 years ago. The Winter Carnival took over my life. I was organizing some photo albums and saw this quaint reminder of what an amazing life I am lucky enough to have. Maybe I will get back here one day, Sun Peaks in British Columbia. This looks like the kind of place you want to take a bite out of.
We 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 Columbian.
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
