Telluride Colorado was founded as a gold mining town in the late 1800s. It still retains some of the old West charm with a great historic and authentic town at the base of the mountain.  Telluride remains a gem hidden in Colorado’s remote southwestern mountains.  Located at the end of a box canon and about 2.5 hour drive from Gunnison Airport, the the town offers majestic views and surroundings offer a sense of the wild and uncharted.   Given the very upscale nature of some of the visitors, Telluride’s culinary scene is sophisticated. Yet still Western.   Styles like Asian fusion, new American and local specialties such as elk and trout makes Telluride one of the  most vibrant restaurant scenes in all of Colorado.

For those brave enough, you can also fly into Telluride airport.  At over 9,000 feet, Telluride is one of  the highest airports in the U.S. to offer regularly scheduled flights.   It’s still open as a general aviation airport, but ekeep in mind that as many as one in five flights diverts at the last second because of rapidly changing weather conditions. Apparently landing on the narrow plateau with a 1,000 foot drop at the end of the runway is just a little too much risk.  If you don’t believe us, watch one of the many videos. Here is one on youtube – Telluride that will make you think twice.

Random point:Landing at Telluride airport is actually a mission in an old version of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
