Have you ever stepped out your front door at night to see the Milky Way tracing a highway across the sky or danced with your shadow under the full moon? Do you walk out your front door every morning awed by the ever-changing beauty of your surroundings?
I have had the pleasure of living in Telluride for twenty years now. I admit, my childhood dream was to live and work a big city; and I tried a few, including New York, and L.A.
