There’s an oft-repeated saying about Colorado: Travelers come for the winter, and stay for the summer. Perhaps no place better embodies the truth of this statement than Telluride. Surrounded by the highest concentration of 13,000- and 14,000-foot peaks in the United States, it’s an obvious draw for skiers. In the summer, those same peaks become ideal places to hike or mountain bike, cool off in alpine lakes, and breathe in the crisp alpine air while enjoying the long sunny days. Here are five ways to explore this breathtakingly beautiful corner of Colorado.
