Friday Photo: Telluride at Dusk

It’s hard not to fall in love with this place.

This place where the mountains are a stone’s throw away. This place where the air is thin yet clean. This place where community thrives. This place where you can watch the sun set every night and still be amazed.

I love this photo for a lot of reasons:

  • The Innate thermos has hot cider in it.
  • That’s my favorite PDX bike sticker.
  • This hike was fantastic.
