Wondering about winter

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

The Santa Ana winds are blowing through Los Angeles right now and it's hot. Of course, that made me miss the cold winds of Colorado up in Telluride. A few months ago, I got to see a different state set high up on the mountains.

In Telluride height is everything. It offers highest elevation fine dining at 11,966 feet, the highest commercial airport in America at 9,078 feet, plus regular trips including breathtaking views from its free gondola system. I loved it all.

The best part was that there were no chain restaurants or coffee shops to be seen anywhere in Telluride. Despite having a world-class resort and nature sights around, Telluride has managed to project a simple local flavor.
