Telluride is located in a box canyon within the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. After the discovery of silver, gold, zinc, and lead along the San Miguel River, what started out as a hardscrabble mining camp blossomed into a boomtown. Today, the Telluride Historic District is preserved as a National Historic Landmark. According to local legend, Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch launched their bank-robbing careers at Telluride’s San Miguel National Bank in 1889. After the ski resorts close mid-spring, Telluride becomes a base camp for hiking and off-roading excursions. Many mining roads throughout Colorado high country double as trails for SUVs. One rugged pathway, the 5-mile Tomboy Road, leads to a once-thriving mining outpost that's now a ghost town inhabited by tumbleweeds and Scooby-Doo villains. Come summertime, Telluride plays host to several annual festivals, including jazz, film, wine, and photo events.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
Modern Fiji embraces a vibrant blend of cultures. British colonization introduced European influences as well as a sizeable Indian population, and American expats who came for the coconut harvests stayed for the islands’ unrivaled natural beauty. Fiji’s melting pot culture is evident in Savusavu, a booming town on the island of Vanua Levu, where old-school yacht clubs line the marina beside curry restaurants with fare as spicy as a telenovela set in a pepper factory. Despite its varied demographics, Fiji remains firmly rooted in tradition. Cultural demonstrations often involve fire walking and meke, a narrative-based communal dance. During both rituals and social events, locals still sip the customary drink, alternately called yaqona, kava, and grog. Derived from the root of a pepper plant, the mildly intoxicating brew is said to numb the lips and tongue.
Waist-deep in the San Miguel River, Steve, one of Telluride Outside's expert fly-fishing guides, casts his line into the water with a deft flick of the wrist, and almost immediately he snags a large rainbow trout. Amateur anglers may not find the process quite as easy during guided half- or full-day fishing excursions, but it's impossible to count the day as a loss when it's spent breathing in cool mountain air amid fresh, babbling waters. On the easy-to-navigate, 2.5-mile Bear Creek Trail, the strong scent of pine saturates the dense woods, and a serene near-silence predominates. En route to a nearby waterfall, all a hiker or cyclist may hear is the chirping birds overhead, the trickling cool water over scattered stones, and the crunching gravelly path underfoot. At the end of November, a fresh coat of powder signals the start of ski season, and Camel’s Garden beckons to snow seekers with ski-on, ski-off access at the base of Lift 8. The resort boasts a ski valet and storage as well as an après-ski bar doling out free wine and cheese. Roughly 2,000 locals inhabit the town year-round, meaning that the bordering Telluride Ski Resort’s lines are nearly nonexistent, and unlimited day passes to a panoply of nearby green, blue, and black runs range from $65 to $100 daily. For less nature-centric pursuits, Telluride’s downtown, a preserved historical district with roots as a 19th-century mining town, presents a mix of history, arts, and local commerce. Yet Telluride doesn’t just look to the past—a progressive spirit pervades the city. Vibrant graffiti scrawled across old warehouses touts peace and civil liberties, and eclectic music and film festivals regularly take over the town. At Bubble Lounge & O2 Bar travelers sample soothing whiffs of lavender or eucalyptus-scented oxygen, said to help alleviate altitude sickness and sweeten sour moods.
