Via Ferrata
You might think you need to fly to the Alps to travel along a via ferrata, or “iron way.” Consisting of a steel cable affixed to mountain sides, these climbing routes were developed during World War I to aid the movement of troops in the Austrian and Italian Alps. The one in Telluride has a more benign purpose—to offer mountaineers, both weekend and more serious ones, unparalleled views of the Bridal Veil Falls and the surrounding peaks of the San Juan Mountains. It’s an unforgettable experience, traversing a rock face with the forest floor some 600 feet below.
