Left Boulder ~3:30pm, for an arrival ~11pm at the AirBnb. Check in was not until after 4pm anyways. It is a 6.5 hour drive with no stops.

Saturday July 1

Picked up mountain bike rentals at the base of the Telluride gondola: https://rentals.bootdoctors.com/rent/mountain-bike

Took the gondola up and spent the morning and early afternoon on: https://www.mtbproject.com/trail/3267247/prospect

Made it back to the Mountain Village side of the gondola bound for the Telluride side of the gondola via the cruisy: https://www.mtbproject.com/trail/3267041/village-trail

Had a very late lunch ~3pm? at Maggies Kitchen, because every other brewpub in town was packed out. They have a great back patio (which is upstairs).

Monday July 3

Dinner at https://www.yelp.com/biz/smugglers-brewpub-telluride was glorious!!!

Tuesday July 4

Booked a Family Rock Climbing - Half Day for $350 with Mountain Trip to take us up the Pipe Line Wall at the head of the canyon. It was my first time climbing outside ... terrifying, but fun! ~10am fighter jets from Colorado Springs buzzed overhead for Telluride's 4th of July parade.

Wednesday July 5

Headed home.
