Planet Bluegrass - Telluride Bluegrass

It's June 18th and it's finally here. Our nephew Will graduated from high school this past month. He's an avid golfer and banjo player. It's been Amy's dream for years to take Will on a great vacation for his graduation gift. Over the past year, it's been my dream too. Amy decided on taking him to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and we all agreed. So, for months, Amy has been planning this perfect trip.

Planet Bluegrass - Telluride Bluegrass: "The 35th Annual Telluride Bluegrass coincides with the Summer Solstice and the days surrounding the full moon; the longest day of the year; the beginning of summer. It's a magical time of sun and light, when the the high country of Colorado puts away its skis and grabs hiking boots, kayaks, and a low-back festival chair to take in 'Bluegrass.'"

Today, we left Atlanta at about 6:30am (Eastern Time) and flew to Denver. Once there, we boarded a smaller plane to Grand Junction, Co. We then drove to Mountain Village, which is where we are staying. We took Will to the Telluride Golf Club so that he could play 18 holes. Amy and I took two (free) Gondola rides across the mountains down to Telluride.

More later.
