First we went to Mountain Village where we parked our car. First we would have lunch at the Peaks Resort & Golden Door Spa, Hotel Telluride. Below is the outdoor patio eating area, as we had Luke with us this day, we would go to the patio for eating.
Lunch was excellent, every one of us had different orders.
Mine was the best!
Our drinks were Arnold Palmers and water.
The Arnold Palmer is becoming quite popular,
it consists of unsweetened ice tea and lemonade,
half and half.
Luke would be good in France. He just stayed nearby
or under the table while we ate.
That wouldn't work right now for Adi and Katrin,
they stand looking at us with big eyes and drooling!
Isn't the view from our table fabulous!
Next summer we might bring golf clubs.
Mrs. Jim caught the first car, but they wouldn't let dogs on this one.
She was waiting for us on a bench when we got to the top.
Luke was apprehensive!
Next posting coming back, you will see how relaxed he became.
At the top, we entered an other cable lift to go down
to Telluride at the bottom on the other side of the mountain.
This is the view from the top,
looking back over Mountain Village where we departed.
These Segways aren't for sale, you can rent them.
You are seeing my first ride on
one of these wonderful fun machines.
Roger, Luke, and Mrs. Jim stood in the shade
while we tried the Segways out.
Later the ladies would go into that real estate office
to peek at home offerings.
Way out of our budget was the verdict for Telluride homes.

Even if you don't do all the others
this one is worth it.
Yes, I have the same Rocky mountain range. I am of the Rocky mountain Range of BC of Canada which so many mistaken for Colorado! It is identical!! I am glad you have steered me here, it was well worth the visit! Thank you! =)
Hugs and blessings,
Glad you liked the story about the Jewish guy and his Apple girl, great
that they got together again.
Take care, Regards, Merle.
I would love to be able to golf on that course.
Blessings to you and Mrs. Jim,
Telluride is a great little town. I have seen segways but have never tried one, may have to one of these days.
