Designated a National Historic Landmark District, all construction adheres to the Victorian town’s image and code. Many of the preserved buildings are now home to gourmet restaurants, chic boutiques, and fine art galleries.

Unbridled Acoustic Adventures

Love is in the air this summer, as many of Telluride’s icons celebrate milestone anniversaries. It is no coincidence that three of Telluride’s cherished festivals have hit their 40th year. Forty years ago, as Telluride was transitioning from mining town to ski town, local residents added summer events to the calendar to draw visitors to the area. As a result, the Telluride Film Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Telluride Chamber Music Festival were born, and put Telluride on the map as the “Festival Capital of the Rockies.” Telluride’s hub for arts and culture, the Sheridan Opera House turns 100 on July 3, 2013. In its early years, the beautiful Victorian theatre paved the way for budding artists and entertainers. Today, 14

Through its evolution over the past century, the Sheridan Opera House remains a treasured venue in the Telluride community. All summer, visitors and locals will raise their glasses to commemorate years of inspirational films, music and culture. Telluride’s festivals boast diverse genres and cater to different audiences, but one thing remains constant - they thrive due to the passion and support of the community, audience and organizers. Festival goers will get a glimpse into the history of the events and Telluride, while experiencing the best the modern world of arts and expression have to offer.

Right of Passage

imogene pass run Ruby Anniversary The first known run over Imogene Pass was done by Rick Trujillo on Tuesday, August 6, 1974, when he ran from Ouray via the pass to Telluride, as a training run for the Pikes Peak Marathon, after a day’s work at the Camp Bird mine. A chance encounter with some Telluride people resulted in a formal race being established. On September 29, 1974, six runners participated in the first “Imogene Pass Mountain Marathon.” Rick was the first to cross the finish line, in 2:21:18. The Imogene Pass Run will be held on September 7, 2013. The event has increased tremendously in size and importance from its humble origins in 1974. Where once it was an adventure run for a few pioneers, today the race is immensely popular and the number of registered participants is restricted by necessity, due to safety and logistical reasons. From the original field of six, it has grown to encompass more than 1500 participants. Mountain weather at this time can change rapidly, and participants through the years have encountered a variety of weather conditions. A full spectrum of weather during the race is part of its lure and mystique. Race Director John Jett has been involved with the event for the past 13 years. He alluded to the intensely loyal following of the run – with some runners returning for more than 25 consecutive years. “The Imogene Pass Run is the longest standing athletic event in the region,” explains Jett. “It has become well-known to trail runners nationally and internationally.” To celebrate the 40th anniversary, Imogene Pass Run organizers have announced a t-shirt design contest. Details about the contest are available at ImogeneRun.com. Registration for the run opens on June 1st and typically sells out within hours.

A Final Note

Chamber Music Festival Bringing music to Telluride since 1973, the Telluride Chamber Music Festival creates a spontaneous connection between audience and musicians that lifts the human spirit. Roy Malan, Concert Master of the San Francisco Ballet, and Robin Sutherland, pianist for the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, were visiting friends in Telluride and saw a need for a chamber music festival. Today, the two continue to be involved with the event; Malan is the Artistic Director, and Sutherland will be returning this year for special anniversary performances. The 40th festival will take place from August 8-18, and will include free concerts in the park, as well as performances at the Sheridan Opera House. Warner Paige, President of the Board, has been running the festival for 12 years. Paige ran a retail music store in Indiana, and has always been interested in the classical music genre. He decided to make Telluride home when he attended the ballet and Chamber Music Festival during his first visit. “Once I found Telluride, I stayed,” said Paige. “I love the way the community embraces such a diverse group of events, from Bluegrass to Chamber music.” Highlights for the 40th anniversary include accomplished musician Julian Pollack, a young pianist, who will perform a world premiere piece, and concerts complete with the best known chamber music written. Local Barbara Martin will play the recorder as she did during the very first concert at the Chamber Music Festival in 1973. Local artists will paint violins and auction them off, and kids’ programs will be offered. Festival goers may also see Malan and Sutherland walking around town adorned with sandwich boards, announcing concerts, as they did during the early festival years.

Colorful airborne creations complement the landscape as balloons define Telluride’s skyline from June 1-2 during the 30th Balloon Festival. Each year, the festival draws locals and visitors for a weekend of balloon gazing and the famous Main Street GLO on Friday evening. The Telluride Balloon Festival was brought to life in 1983 when organizers that were involved with the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta decided to take the concept to Telluride. In the ninth year, the festival was at risk of being cancelled when the head organizer left town. Marilyn Branch, the current chair, took over and coordinated the festival in a mere six weeks. Branch’s eagerness and passion to continue the festival stemmed from her extensive ballooning history; she has been ballooning since 1973, and flew as crew in Albuquerque for 22 years. Branch feels that ballooning offers a sense of mystery and romance that make for a truly unique experience. “Balloons floating over our beautiful mountain backdrop provide a magical experience for passengers and spectators,” said Branch. Balloons will inflate and launch from Telluride Town Park at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2. Spectators can view balloons lit up on Main Street during the GLO on Saturday evening starting at 8 p.m. Paul D. deBerjeois, photographer of choice for many of the major balloon festivals, will hold a free photo workshop during the weekend as well. The Balloon Festival is a free event, and perfect for families and people of all ages to enjoy.

Platinum Anniverary The 20th Annual Telluride Blues and Brews Festival kicks-off on September 12th for three days. To commemorate twenty years, the festival is planning special shows and will bring back some of the bands from the past, as well as new up and coming artists. “We went from a very local/regional attraction to a national/international attraction. In the first year, we were hoping for 500, and 1000 showed up,” said Steve Gumble, owner and CEO of SBG Productions, producer of the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival. “We knew we had a good recipe.” Now, the festival draws 9000 people for three days of music paired with brews. Festivarians love the experience, and VIP tickets sell out the first day they go on sale, well before the lineup is announced. “It is an honor for people to have blind faith in us like that,” added Gumble. Gumble moved to Telluride fresh out of college with his first blues album, Muddy Waters, in tow, which still proudly hangs behind his desk. After ski

bumming, he decided that if he was going to stay, he needed to get a real job. His passion for Blues soon combined with suds to form the perfect marriage. Gumble purchased Telluride Liquors in 1991. At that time, he met Jeff Lebesch, the founder of New Belgium Brewing Company who was brewing beer in his basement. Lebesch encouraged him to start a beer festival in Telluride. “It was an overnight success,” said Gumble. “As it grew we needed to take the primary focus away from microbrews, and my love for the Blues seemed

summer/fall 2013

like the perfect combination.” “There are a lot of people here who say they were at the first Blues and Brews, said Gumble. “Never in my wildest imagination would it be where it is today,” he reflects. On September 15, 2001, just days after 9/11, the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival opened to an emotional crowd, explained Gumble. “It brought a lot of people together, a lot of friendships were made that are still in existence today.” Musicians love to play on the stage in Town Park. “Playing in Telluride is as special for them as it is for us to host them - that’s the magic of Telluride,” added Gumble. “Bonnie Raitt came and took a break to hang out in Telluride, just to hike for a few days.” Saturday of the festival weekend is reserved for The Grand Tasting with over 50 microbreweries pouring from noon - 3 p.m. Festival goers can listen to live music while sampling close to 150 different beers. The Black Crowes, Jim James, and Melissa Etheridge will headline this year’s festival. Additional musicians booked to play include Gary Clark Jr., John Hiatt, Mickey Hart Band, Anders Osborne, Otis Taylor Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Allen Stone, ZZ Ward, The New Mastersounds, The Bright Light Social Hour, The Relatives, and IBC winner Selwyn Birchwood Band. “When you have BB King on the stage, who has played in 90 different countries and says, ‘I’ve never played anywhere as beautiful as this place.’ that says a lot about Telluride,” added Gumble.

Artists love it too; many have compared a gig here to playing in their living room. Walking into the Opera House today transports visitors back to the early 20th century with its restored stenciling, original maple flooring, original olio and dome hand-dipped pink proscenium lighting. “We like to think it is the cornerstone of the community,” said Ronnie Palamar, Sheridan Opera House event director. The Opera House is vital to the festivals, as musicians that play in Town Park during the day grace the Opera House stage in the evening, shifting from 10,000 cheering fans to intimate performances in the 285 seat theatre. “It gives you the old school Blues feeling, a more

intimate experience,” explains Steve Gumble, Blues and Brews Festival director, when referring to the juke joints the festival holds at the Opera House. In 1913, J.A. and Arvid Segerberg, two brothers managing the New Sheridan Hotel, recognized Telluride’s need for a venue to host events and opened the Segerberg Opera House. Hosting high-class events and musicians including Sarah Berhardt and Lillian Gish, as well as William Jennings Bryant, helped bring national attention to this “jewel box” of a theater. When prohibition took effect in Colorado, Telluride began to suffer culturally and financially. Saloons closed and patronage at the Opera House nearly ended.

boxing matches, high school proms and movies. In 1973, the now world renowned Telluride Film Festival was founded, briefly renting, and eventually purchasing and remodeling the Sheridan Opera House to use as its primary movie theater. By 1991 the Sheridan Opera House was in a severe state of disrepair and threatened by demolition. At that time, the Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded by Sandra and Keith Caradine. Together with the Town of Telluride and the Colorado Historical Society, they initiated the project of restoring the building. The opera house will commemorate the opening of the Segerberg Opera House on July 3, 2013, with a Speakeasy Gala, black tie affair, where the opera house will be transformed into the 1920s Broadway of Telluride. Step back into time with an evening of decadence featuring the Cab Calloway Orchestra, a legacy auction and more. “We are going to replicate what it was at that time,” added Palamar. “There will be a 1913 historic Pierce Arrow automobile on hand along with other artifacts from the era.”

4x4 off-road

outdoor activities

Telluride’s mining days carved a string of roads into the San Juan Mountains over 100 years ago. Today, those same routes offer unparalleled access to the high country and its world-famous gold rush towns. Experienced guides lead tours over mountain passes through old mining ghost towns filled with wildflowers and wildlife. Explore the rugged beauty of the area on one of the many 4x4 tours over Imogene Pass to the old town of Tomboy, up over Ophir Pass to the town of Alta, or over Black Bear Pass on one of the area’s most notorious routes. 

rock climbing Routes and boulders for all abilities in the greater Telluride region include jagged peaks and extensive wall faces that provide a variety of climbing and bouldering opportunities. From classic routes on Ophir Wall to moderate climbs on Pipeline, the climbing is diverse and plentiful. For those learning the sport or seeking instruction, a number of guide services are available. Local maps, information and gear can be found at many sport shops in the area. Look up while hiking, and see some of the world’s best climbers scaling the rock faces in the area.

horseback riding Have an old west experience by riding through aspen forests and alpine meadows on horseback. Horseback riding in the San Juan Mountains is a favorite activity among families, and creates lifelong memories. Outfitters offer guided daytime outings, half-day trail rides, chuck wagon dinner rides and overnight trips.

golf Playing golf at the Telluride Golf Club is a magnificent experience. The 71-par, 18-hole course meanders along high altitude terrain with spectacular views of the mountain ranges that make up the highest concentration of 14,000foot peaks in the United States. The course has a putting green, practice facilities and four sets of tees for different skill levels, and a well-equipped pro shop with knowledgeable staff. According to science, golf balls fly further at elevation, although the magnificent views and resident wildlife make keeping your eye on the ball not an easy task.  

river sports As the snow melts, the streams and free-flowing rivers become playgrounds of river rafting and kayaking. The solitude and natural beauty of the canyons can only be explored by floating the rivers in the area. From wild river rapids to a leisurely float, the Telluride area offers an array of river sports with vistas that are second to none. The session starts in late May and runs through August. Local outfitters take paddlers on half-day or full-day excursions through class II - III+ rapids. There is also kayaking and paddle boarding on the rivers and alpine lakes, all great ways to soak up the sun while getting a workout.

town park Telluride Town Park is home to family fun in the heart of Telluride. The park is a hub of activity yearround. In the summer, you’ll find softball fields, a disc golf course, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, swimming pool, kid’s fishing pond, Imagination Station, and more. The hike to Bear Creek Falls starts from the park, and a short walk through the woods behind the softball fields takes nature lovers to the Lower Bear Creek Falls. The park is also the venue for the town’s many festivals and is host to a campground that offers sites along the San Miguel River. 24

biking

hiking / running

The Telluride region provides a striking backdrop for road and mountain bikers, and a variety of terrain for all abilities. Mountain bikers will find challenging trails that explore old mining roads and basins high above the box canyon, moderate trails that link several former railroad tracks throughout the valley and a biking playground at Telluride Ski Resort. Road riding is also popular along the scenic San Juan Skyway. The region offers technical and challenging routes for skilled road riders featuring many mountain passes and substantial elevation gains.

Trails weave throughout the mountains where hikers can take a quick jaunt to waterfalls or spend the day traversing high alpine terrain to lakes and over peaks to uncover old mining ruins and view wildflowers. The trail system in the region has an extensive list of short strolls, day hikes or overnight backpacking adventures into the high country surrounding Telluride. Both the towns of Telluride and Mountain Village have trails that lead out-of-town in all directions where hikers can experience the cool mountain air and unmatched scenery.

arroyo Telluride the neWLy opened Arroyo is Telluride’s only combination art gallery and wine bar. Scott MacLaren and Sean Murphy opened Arroyo as a sister gallery to their gallery of the same name in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The two hail from Manhattan, and had the idea to open a gallery/wine bar after becoming thirsty while touring art exhibits. They currently split their time between the two towns and interchange art and exhibits in both locations. Arroyo Telluride is home to an eclectic, ever-evolving collection of southwest-inspired artworks and artifacts, and a wine, spirits and beer menu that offers something for every taste. It has quickly become a favorite of locals and visitors with its unpretentious atmosphere, and diverse collection of photographs, paintings, pottery and sculptures. MacLaren is also a photographer, and his acclaimed images hang-on the walls of the gallery. The two have embraced the community, hosting poetry readings and functions for local non-profits. Arroyo partners with local restaurants and caterers to host special events, from bridal showers to intimate wedding receptions.

Telluride’s Top chef eliza gavin, Chef/owner of 221 south oak PREPARED CONTENDER Telluride chef and owner of 221 South Oak bistro, eliza Gavin, competed against 21 world-class chefs on Bravo TV’s Top Chef Seattle during the tenth season of the emmy and James Beard Award-winning series. “Top Chef gave me the opportunity to do and learn more, feeding off of others’ energy. I definitely have more components to my dishes now; my food is more complex,” Gavin said. Gavin’s Top Chef streak began in August of 2010, when she won the Telluride Top Chef and Taste of Telluride Competition at an annual fundraiser for the San Miguel One to One Mentoring Program. She beat three of Telluride’s premier chefs who competed in 30-minute cook-offs.

Culinary delights abound in Telluride, with quick bites, take-out and gourmet dining for the discerning palate. Chefs in the area weave regional ingredients into their menus found at the Telluride Farmers’ Market or through local growers that supply fresh seasonal produce, eggs and organic meats. Diners find creative, modern dishes as well as favorite staples such as pizza, burgers and tacos. Restaurants open their doors onto sunny patios offering wonderful alfresco dining. enjoy cocktails by the fire or poolside, join the monthly Art Walk and browse area galleries before sitting down for a fantastic meal. Complete the evening by playing pool or taking in some music at local venues. Turn to pages 66-71 for a complete list of bars and restaurants or go to VisitTelluride.com.

MODERN BISTRO CUISINE At 221 South Oak bistro, fresh ingredients are artfully prepared in a remodeled historic home on Oak Street in downtown Telluride. In the summer, the restaurant’s two patios are full of diners noshing on local specialties such as pan-fried local squash blossoms stuffed with goat cheese or beet and pear salad. Sunday brunch features homemade muffins and sweet and savory beignets filled with crawfish or crab. “We prepare each dish to order and are happy to accommodate special requests,” said Gavin. MASTER OF INFUSION Gavin will be cooking and learning more this fall when she works with her former contestants again on some new projects they created during the taping of Top Chef. Asked if she would do it again, Gavin reflected, “It was hard because I missed my family tremendously, but I think I would have to because I want to prove I can do it.” LIVE TO LEARN During the taping of Top Chef, she sent a letter to her son every day, and when she’s not at the restaurant, you’ll find her soaking up the sunshine on a hike or bike ride with her family. Gavin hails from Richmond, VA and ran her first kitchen while attending college. After graduating from the university of the South in Tennessee, Gavin moved to New Orleans to expand her culinary career and learn about classic Creole cuisine. She trained at Le Cordon Blue in Paris and is the author of two cookbooks.

SPECIALTY FOOD STORES take root in

F

oodies of Telluride are rejoicing after three new specialty food stores opened in the downtown area within months of one another. For fine olive oils from far-flung Mediterranean locales, visit Telluride Olive Oil Company. For delicious cheeses and charcuterie from around the world, stop in at Over the Moon. And for hand-crafted high quality teas, spend some time at T Love. Last July, mother and daughter team Maura Coulter and Hallie Coulter Conlin moved in behind the Patagonia store on Fir Street with Over the Moon. The quaint space is filled with gourmet pantry items, an impressive cheese case and cozy tables, with choices including cured meats, imported and domestic cheeses, wines by the glass, Benedetto Cavalieri pastas, duck fat and much more. The Coulter family lived here in the 90s, and after moving away, daughter Hallie came back to Telluride and convinced her mom Maura to return as a partner in a gourmet food store. “I’m from Boston, and I’m used to having something like this in every neighborhood,” Coulter said. At Over the Moon, visitors can pick up a souvenir jar of pickles made in Telluride, sample a vast array of cheeses or order a charcuterie plate to their liking with a glass of wine. In the summer, a small, inviting patio holds diners out the back of the store. When it comes to their bottom line, Over the Moon carries things that the two ladies love and know that other people will love too. “We wanted it to be very different from anything that is in Telluride – we don’t want to duplicate anything that’s already here.” >>

In November, the Telluride Olive Oil Company opened its doors on the west end of main street (398 W. Colorado Ave.). The specialty shop offers almost two dozen different olive oils from California, Greece, Italy and Morocco. The oils are infused with such flavors as Italian herb, roasted garlic, and even bacon and black truffle. Manager Donovan Williamson and his parents already owned a version of the store in Creede, CO., before deciding to open a second branch in Telluride. “We’re big foodies and we travel the world, but we don’t bring home souvenirs - we bring home food,” Williamson said. He calls the space a tasting gallery and wants his customers to try his product before bringing it home. With more than 30 different balsamic flavors, jams made in Durango, Pappardelle Pasta out of Denver, New Mexico salsas, and smoked salts from around the world, the Telluride Olive Oil Company is a chef ’s dream come true. “Everyone that comes in loves interacting [with the food],” Williamson said. “We like to make sure that people can taste everything because we want them walking out of here with something they know they’re going to enjoy.

Riley has had a passion for herbs and teas for more than two decades; this is her fourth tea house. A wall of almost 90 different tea samples is available for customers to smell to pick out the perfect brew for their respite, afternoon or otherwise. “I have created something that is really simple and takes you away,” Riley said of her tea selection. Riley blends teas for personal preferences or ailments and serves customers in old-fashioned tea cups. “People really want to put better things in their bodies.” She also sells an assortment of natural body products, essential oils and tea accessories, including hand-forged Japanese tea pots. She uses top of the line products across the board and strives to incorporate local ingredients in her teas and other products when possible. Just another unique experience that can enhance anyone’s visit.

cross Training with yoga roots erin gehrke, owner studio e. Telluride STRONG FOUNDATION Local fitness enthusiast and yoga instructor erin Gehrke opened Studio e. in Telluride this past winter, featuring hot and Vinyasa yoga classes, indoor cycling and weighted cycling classes. An athlete her entire life, Gehrke started taking yoga as a teenager and couldn’t get enough of it. She says she was lucky to find the right teacher who inspired her. “It resonated with me, and I want to offer that to others,” says Gehrke.

Lifetime memories.

BALANCE OF FITNESS After earning her Masters in education, she embarked on a career as a teacher – until she had her own children and realized that she wanted to strike a balance between family and her passion. “After I had my first daughter, I knew I wanted a career centered on health and wellness,” said Gehrke. Prior to becoming a popular yoga teacher in Telluride, erin earned her Vinyasa certification in New york in 2006. After that, she honed her skills while working in gyms, doing a broader range of fitness disciplines, including Pilates, mixed martial arts and indoor cycling. She later became certified in spinning and Pilates. MOVE NATURALLY Gehrke’s mantra is “Do what feels right in the moment.” She encourages her students to focus on the moment, which lets them move more naturally rather than forcing a movement. Her classes offer something for every level from the beginner to the professional. everyone can enjoy Vinyasa, a restorative dynamic flow in which movement is synchronized with breathing. Designed specifically for experienced yogis in a heated room, Power Vinyasa is not for the faint-of-heart. It’s a challenging 60-minute flow to upbeat music. The Hot 26 class frees the mind and body while covering the traditional 26 postures in the heated studio. Weighted yoga is a unique blend of yoga postures and weighted repetitions.

imagine blind men captaining a ship or a paraplegic scaling a mountain. Just a few decades ago that seemed impossible, but due to constantly changing science, innovation and old-fashioned determination, anything is possible. This summer, modern-day assistive technology pioneers will convene in Telluride for the No Barriers Summit, August 8-11, 2013. This biennial gathering of scientists, inventors, academics, practitioners and people with physical limitations is both informative and inspirational. No Barriers Summit seeks to challenge what is possible and find solutions that allow those who are challenged to achieve their wildest dreams. The four-day summit focuses on discovery and exploration with a combination of hands-on clinics, product demonstrations, outdoor excursions, films, art, music, leadership exercises and symposia. “We are proud to bring the No Barriers Summit to Telluride in 2013,” said Erik Weihenmayer, No Barriers USA board member. “There are few mountain towns that can better represent everything the summit stands for: a sense of adventure, a commitment to innovation and a mutual belief in the power of community.”

Weihenmayer lost his vision at the age of 13, but that didn’t stop him from reaching the summit of the world’s highest mountain. In 2011, he was the first blind climber in history to summit Mount Everest; and, at the age of 33 he became one of fewer than 100 individuals to climb the Seven Summits — the highest peaks on each continent. Past No Barriers Summits have enabled paraplegics to participate in outdoor activities, including mountain climbing, kayaking and fly fishing, thanks to advances in technology and assistive devices. Leading scientists and technologists have presented their latest developments in the fields of physical medicine and rehabilitation, and, participants have learned more about accessible tourism and the latest in assistive devices such as neural prostheses and artificial limbs. According to Telluride Tourism Board President and CEO Michael Martelon, when the core value of a conference mission aligns so well with what the community represents, it’s a home run. “We are thrilled that No Barriers has selected Telluride as a strategic partner,” said Martelon. “It’s amazing how much our community has already embraced the event initiatives, and it will be exciting to see what the long-term results are of the collaboration. Based on local participation, the event has grown to include arts and humanities initiatives, which will complement their traditional recreation programming.” The Telluride Adaptive Sports Program, a non-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of people with physical and cognitive disabilities by providing recreational opportunities, partnered with the Telluride Tourism Board and No Barriers Summit to help host this special event. “Telluride Adaptive Sports Program is thrilled to assist in hosting the 2013 No Barriers Conference,” said Courtney Stuecheli, executive director of Telluride Adaptive Sports. “We are excited to provide all of the recreational activities for the attendees, thus continuing to make the beautiful San Juan Mountains accessible to all. It’s the first time the Telluride community has taken on an event of this magnitude for so many individuals living with disabilities. Our board of directors, staff and volunteers are all very much looking forward to showing the participants all the amazing opportunities we have to offer.” The summit will provide private events for participants and daytime recreational clinics. The public can expect an outdoor movie screening in Mountain Village on August 9, and a block party in Telluride the evening of August 10 with music, art, innovation and vendors. One of the many features of the summit is hands-on clinics during which people with disabilities can test out the latest in assistive technology through experiences such as rock climbing, fly fishing, hiking and even downhill mountain biking. “Being a quad amputee, I didn’t really have the intention to kayak. But the Summit staff just rigged something up in about 15 minutes with some adaptive equipment. It blew my mind,” said prior Summit attendee Kyle Maynard, who will speak at Telluride’s 2013 summit. “That’s what No Barriers means to me. Just jumping in and doing it.” For more information about the No Barriers Summit visit nobarriersusa.org/summit/. summer/fall 2013

kyle maynard

Kyle Maynard has achieved more in his 27 years than the average person accomplishes in a lifetime. He is a motivational speaker, the author of a New York Times bestseller “No Excuses,” is in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, was named GNC’s World’s Strongest Teen, has climbed to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro, and owns a Crossfit gym in Georgia. And did we mention he’s a quadruple amputee? Maynard was born a congenital amputee, but that hasn’t stopped him from pushing his limits and living a rich, full life. Maynard will visit Telluride this summer as a special guest of the No Barriers Summit to tell attendees his special story as a climber, author and adventurer. Maynard first attended the summit in Winter Park, Colorado, in 2011 and was blown away with the technology helping people with disabilities get outdoors and stay active. “No matter what the challenge was, they were willing to do it,” Maynard said. “With drive and ingenuity, the people at the summit figure out how to do just about anything.” It was through this gathering that Maynard met his future guide for his planned Kilimanjaro trip.  “Everything really started there. It all originated from the conversations I was having at No Barriers,” Maynard said.  “That was the original reason for me coming to the Summit, but then my eyes were opened up to many other things, like adaptive kayaking and a bunch of other really amazing adaptive activities.”

Eighty Years Since the End of Prohibition  Isolation and Renegade Spirit Kept Telluride Well Hydrated

Interior of Cosmopolitan Saloon, Telluride, c. 1900

At the turn of the century, thirty-five establishments existed for thirsty drinkers to belly up to the bar in Telluride. Colorado passed its own prohibition laws in 1915, four years before the rest of the country. Telluride saloons were forced to shut their doors, but the town carried on with little regard for the law, at least until enforcement cracked down with the passing of the Volstead Act in 1919.

1. SAN MIGUEL COUNTY COURTHOUSE the courthouse was originally built on the south side of west colorado avenue in 1886, but burned shortly after construction. the bricks were saved to build the present courthouse less than a year later on the opposite corner (colorado ave. and oak st.). recently renovated, it is still used today. 2. NEW SHERIDAN HOTEL & OPERA HOUSE Built in 1891, telluride’s first hotel was destroyed by fire in 1894 and rebuilt in brick in 1895. at the same time, the sheridan Bar was built, and is now one of the oldest bars in the west. the bar has remained unchanged since 1895, boasting its original lead glass divider panels, mahogany wood paneling and filigree light fixtures. patrons are served beverages on the original hand-carved cherry wood bar that was imported from austria. the new sheridan was recently accepted as a member of the national trust for historic hotels of america. in 1913, the opera house was added and named the segerberg opera house, after builders J.a. and arvid segerberg. the building was eventually named the sheridan opera house after its neighboring bar and hotel. 3. THE PEKKARINE BUILDING one of the oldest buildings on colorado avenue, the building was home to the pekkarine family. mr. pekkarine emigrated to the u.s. from finland in the late 1800s and opened a boot shop in the basement. on the second floor, he later operated a mercantile store. the pekkarines lived on the third floor. at the settling of the pekkarine estate in 1974, valuable turn-of-the-century artifacts were donated to the telluride historical museum. 4. ROMA BAR BUILDING the roma Building was home to one of the town’s oldest and most raucous bars. now honga’s lotus petal, the downstairs still contains the original 1860 Brunswich-Balke-collender company bar, which is carved from walnut with 12-foot french mirrors. the building was renovated in 1983 and again in 2006. 44

7. TOWN HALL the building was constructed on fir street and columbia avenue in 1883 as telluride’s first schoolhouse. the one-room structure held one teacher and 53 students, and was built for $3,000. after a new school was built, the town offices occupied the building. 8. TELLURIDE HISTORICAL MUSEUM Built in 1896 as hall’s hospital, named after its first doctor – dr. hall, the building served as the community hospital treating miners and townspeople until it closed in 1964 due to a diminishing population. it re-opened in 1966 as the telluride historical museum, and was renovated in 2002. ten rooms, each with their own theme, showcase different aspects of telluride’s mining days and early days of skiing with a vast collection of photographs and artifacts. 9. NORTH OAK HOUSE Built in 1900, this house was a survivor of the 1914 flood that careened down cornet creek, sweeping through town and depositing mud and debris from the liberty Bell mine down to colorado avenue. one woman was killed, and the sheridan Bar was filled with mud halfway to the ceiling. this house has been completely restored to its original condition, and is now listed on the national register of historic homes. 10. DAVIS HOUSE e. l. davis built this stately brick house in 1894. davis was a mining and real estate entrepreneur who held numerous mining claims in the ingram-Bridal Veil Basin and Bear creek area. he owned all the land where the former rio Grande southern train depot now stands, as well as one-third interest in west telluride. davis sought to bring business to the town as vice-president of the telluride Board of trade. after davis’ death, the house was sold to dr. oshner, who used it as a hospital, particularly during the 1918 flu epidemic. the house was renovated in 1983.

TOMBO

C. Galloping Goose this curious hybrid of auto and train rode otto mears’ famous railroad line in the declining years of the rio Grande southern. the Galloping Goose made its last run in 1953. (the Goose has been temporarily removed for renovation.) D. Miner’s Union Built by the “western federation of miners” in 1901 as a hospital, it closed after only two years of operation because of labor strikes, which resulted in the mobilization of the colorado national Guard to restore order. E. Butch Cassidy Robbery Site By most accounts, Butch cassidy was a minor player in his first bank robbery of san miguel Valley Bank in 1889. the old bank burned and was replaced by the mahr Building in 1892. F. Pick & Gad located in what was once telluride’s red-light district, patrons were treated to music, food, wine and ladies in this brick “parlour house” if they wore a coat and tie. G. Old Town Jail this stone jail is thought to have been built in 1885 and is now occupied by the telluride marshal’s department. the town’s first calaboose, a wooden structure, was built in 1878 and is now located in telluride town park’s campgrounds. H. Penn Tram Towers at the turn of the century, the east end of the canyon was laced with the cables of aerial trams that lowered ore from the mines to mills in the valley below. these two towers are from the pennsylvania mine’s tramline.

6. OLD WAGGONER HOUSE charles delos waggoner, president of the Bank of telluride (yellow brick building with pillars on main street), contrived a scheme purportedly to save his bank in the wall street crash of 1929. waggoner, aka “Buck,” siphoned money from new york banks to keep his clients from losing their life savings once the Bank of telluride couldn’t pay its creditors. waggoner testified in court, “i would rather see the new york banks lose money than the people of telluride, most of whom have worked all their lives for the savings that were deposited in my bank.” he was rumored to be in mexico or canada, but was found in new castle, wyoming and had only $400 when he was arrested. waggoner was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but was paroled after six years.

ASPEN

the telluride area boasts a rich history and one of the west’s most iconic, Victorian area mining towns. in the 1700s, the ute indians used the san Juan mountains and the san miguel river banks as summer camp. explorers passed through the area in the 1700’s and 1800’s in search of land, but it was the mining industry that brought the first european settlers in 1876 when the sheridan mine registered its operation in the marshall Basin above telluride. the mountains turned out to be loaded with zinc, lead, copper, iron and silver. once gold was discovered, the boom was on. in a short, 20-year span, the town grew from a hodgepodge of cabins and shacks to rows of elegant Victorians and stately brick buildings. today, many of the structures still exist, illustrating the rich history of the town while housing modern boutiques and restaurants. telluride was designated a national historic landmark district in 1964, the highest level of historic status given by the u.s. secretary of the interior. in an effort to protect the character and authenticity of the area, telluride established the historic and architectural review commission (harc), which reviews new building or remodeling plans before construction begins. the historic walking tour is a selfguided tour through the area’s storied past.

5. ST. PATRICK’S CATHOLIC CHURCH reverend J.J. Gibbons, pastor of st. patrick’s catholic church from ouray, made his first trip to telluride for a baptism, traveling by horseback over slippery mountain passes. in 1896, he helped build st. patrick’s catholic church of telluride on catholic hill for $4,800. By 1899, the church had 200 parishoners. the wooden figures of the stations of the cross were carved in the tyrol area of austria. in 2005, the interior of st. patrick’s was remodeled.

NUNN HOUSE on the corner of aspen and west columbia, this white Victorian was bought by l.l. nunn who financed the world’s first commercial a/c power plant, the ames hydroelectric Generating plant. nunn purchased the home for his telluride institute, where “pinheads” from cornell university came to expand their knowledge of the production of power. today, cornell university has a “telluride house” funded by nunn’s estate. next door, on the corner of aspen street and west columbia, is the house in which nunn lived, which was built in 1887 and remodeled extensively in 1980. 1980. 12. RIO GRANDE SOUTHERN RAILWAY DEPOT prior to the arrival of the railroad in 1891, burro trains carried all supplies into and out of the area. the introduction of the railroad created a bustling, noisy area surrounded by boardinghouses and warehouses, some of which still stand on san Juan avenue. ore was hauled out of the surrounding mines and became a major revenue generator for rio Grande southern railroad. the depot, built of wooden siding and shingles, was restored in 1991 and today, it houses the ah haa school for the arts. 13. FINN TOWN this area was the center of social life for finnish immigrants. on the south side of pacific street finn town flats (originally a boardinghouse), finn hall and the smaller swede-finn hall (pictured, and now an elks lodge on the corner of pacific and townsend) hosted many parties and gatherings where families brought food, bands played and people danced and socialized. continuing east, detour briefly up south oak street to the dahl house, a miner’s rooming house built in the 1890s, now home to the restaurant, flavor. 14. POPCORN ALLEY the senate, silver Bell, cribs and madam’s stone residences make up the restored buildings of pacific street’s “sporting district”. the senate was one of the many places bustling with business between the 1880s and 1930s. the saloon and gaming room closed in 1935. the silver Bell, built in 1890, suffered a disastrous fire in 1923. it operated as one of telluride’s many “soda parlours” during prohibition, and its numerous entrances hint at the other services offered there. it closed in 1959, was restored in 1991 and today houses many businesses. the three small Victorian houses standing in a row on pacific street, known as the cribs, are all that remain of the “female boarding houses” that lined both sides of west pacific street all the way to town park. the telluride housing authority saved these last cribs by renovating them in 1983.

Lustre Gallery presents handcrafted art for the home and self that is inspired by a love of nature. Tucked away on Pine Street one block south of Colorado Ave., Lustre is most noticeable to the passerby at night. Dozens of hand painted glass chandeliers by Ulla Darni illuminate the store. Fine inlaid furniture crafted with exotic woods and gem quality stones by John Arenskov, brings the term “conversation piece” to life. Marshall Noice’s vibrant landscapes grace the walls, together with historical tin reliefs and earthy mixed media. Sculptural works and vessels are created by glass, bronze and fiber artists. Complementing jewelry for home with art for self, Lustre showcases several jewelers including art nouveau jewelry by Masriera, Gurhan’s 24K gold collection and naturally colored diamonds by Todd Reed. Lustre’s artists often find inspiration in nature and incorporate the most beautiful natural elements into their creations. Please stop by the gallery for a fuller appreciation of our artists. 970.728.3355 • 171 South Pine Street, Telluride www.lustregallery.com
