Mesa Verde National Park.
My friend Brent pulled up last night on his Harley with camping gear and all. Brent is a coffee roaster/barista at Moab Coffee Roasters in Moab, UT. We relaxed that evening at the campsite in Mesa Verde National Park.
The trip to Telluride the next day was a fun fantastic trip after I made really delicious Aeropress coffee using Guatemalan beans. We both really enjoyed Telluride, Co. because of the attitude of the people. We found the town open-minded, and liberal. Very dog oriented as well. The locals were very nice and friendly. Altitude is somewhere around 8500 feet. We ate at a little old Victorian house called The Corner House Grille. We heard the fish and chips were great. Brent ordered fish and chips and I love a good fish taco so I ordered two fish tacos. Both were great. We walked the town, stopped at this cool coffee cart/trailer conversion. I ordered an Espresso double. Yikes it tasted bitter lacked any real depth of flavor. She said she made the best in town. (Her father was probably a marketing C.E.O. marketing bullshit as marketing people tend to do). Well what she said and what we tasted were 180 degrees off.
Suffice it to say we had a great time. The images below will give you a small taste of what we saw. This is my kind of town. A great place to visit. For me it is meeting people and hanging out at some great fun places in town. Plus I would imagine the cost of living is outrageous.
Those that may be interested – there are four cannabis stores in town.
