Motorcycle chicks in Telluride

Telluride was in for a treat, when two of my best (and hottest!) biker mamas agreed to join me and my man for a road trip from Denver to southwest Colorado. (Picture taken on Monarch Pass, between Salida and Gunnison, L to R: Gail, Diana (me) and Vicki).

For our 4-day road trip, the June weather couldn't have been more perfect, high 90s in Denver 70s in the San Juan Mountains. Telluride sits at 8,750 feet above sea level, and the entire town is designated a National Historic Landmark. Even though we're from the Mile High City (Denver), the uphill walks reminded us that the air is thinner here.

We were lucky to stay in Lumiere, (pictured right) a boutique luxury hotel, located above Telluride in its sister town, Mountain Village.

We all agreed -- summer in Telluride is one of our favorite rides.
Read more about my Telluride adventures from fly fishing to motorcycling on this blog, as Traveling Grandmom at TravelingMom.com blogger, and as Denver Travel Examiner.

P.S. Vicki even bought a new pair of biker boots!
Until next time, Diana
