Telluride, Colorado is a small town in the San Juan Mountains. Formerly known for its mining operations and the site of outlaw Butch Cassidy's first bank robbery, Telluride is now a popular skiing destination.
San Miguel River Trail is a four mile trail that starts in town and runs parallel to the San Miguel River.
The San Juan Mountains are lined with aspen trees, which turn a vibrant orange and yellow during autumn months.
Telluride lies in a box canyon, surrounded by mountain walls on three sides. This picture of a stream along the San Miguel River Trail was taken near the closed-end of the canyon.
