We headed for Telluride. We had been there before years ago. I knew we would find an overpriced touristy town, but the drive there was stunning. It was so pleasurable for both of us. When we got to Telluride, it was not only weekend crowded but teeming with people. There was a memorial run of some kind where runners started in Ouray and ran over the mountains to Telluride. Everyone in the town had a dog or two. That was the dodgiest town I have ever been in, and it was fun to visit with the pets. We walked along but rarely went into stores as they held no interest to me; I could not have afforded anything if they did. We bought tea at and patio café and enjoyed the people and the fresh air.
