Wanderlust Wednesday

Today’s Wanderlust Wednesday photo essay is in conjunction with our brand new article on Telluride, Colorado and hopes to share that travel – on a dime – truly is possible even in areas with a reputation for being costly. Telluride was completely free. No charge to camp and the hiking and ghost town… well stunning and yes, FREE.

I camped it solo and after a wee bit of initial trepidation – that included an overactive imagination, engaged in ninja battles with serial killers and bears – I settled down and felt pretty embarrassed. The place can only be described as what you would envision heaven to look like. Alta Lakes sits at eleven-thousand feet and is accessed by about five miles of dirt/rock road and it is just waiting for you to put it on your list!

Feel free to pass this gem along and “like”/share to Facebook and/or Tweet.
