Day 3: To Telluride

23 April 2021 550 km / 342 mi (map)

After Taos, it was time for some high desert plains and some mountains. I landed this next night in the ski resort of Telluride.

Visiting a remote ski resort in a shoulder season is an … interesting experience. Though there were still a good number of visitors, the oxygen was clearly out of the room for the month. Very few restaurants were open, even for takeout. I did manage to find good food, but it wasn’t easy.

Not so colorful just yet.

On the way into Telluride, they had these fun locally-themed COVID warning signs:
