Summer in Telluride

It is Friday morning, the sun is shining, and Telluride has officially recovered from the Phish shows on Monday and Tuesday nights. Thousands of Phish fans poured into Telluride and Mountain Village for the long awaited, hot ticketed shows. The weather gave festivalgoers a lucky break - the clouds parted, and the sun shone momentarily for the duration of both shows. Fans were blown away by the beauty of our magical box canyon and organizers, law enforcement and the medical center were all very impressed with how smooth things went!

This week, things are a little more mellow. We have the Telluride Festival of the Arts this weekend.
