TELLURIDE 15 YEARS AGO | Abie Livesay Photographer

It all started with a post card

In 2000 a dear friend moved from her beautiful Victorian home outside of Pittsburgh to Telluride Colorado.

We hadn't talked in a few months, pre cell phones, email etc. busy lives. Although I hadn't heard from her in a while, I didn't expected to get a postcard from the Rockies saying she had moved away!!

What a wild and free spirit she is.

The postcard, an invitation to visit and mention of beautiful, interesting people enticed this outdoor loving tomboy to look into it more.

And so in 2001 I moved to Telluride, knowing one person and having a very overly packed old Saab, a skill-set and enthusiasm for adventure I found a place to crash and a job, or three.

I fell in love with Telluride.

If you've been there you get it, if you haven't been, check it soon as possible!
