It's no secret, Scott and I are big farmer's market lovers and always take any chance we get to check out one. Well, when we pulled into Telluride for our day adventure the first thing we spotted was a sign stated that today was the town's farmer's market! So we found a parking spot on the side of street quickly, and made our way down to one of the most amazing farmer's markets we had ever been to.
The market was four or five blocks long, and all the way down there was booth after booth filled with homemade treats, fresh produce, delicious lunch choices, fresh flowers and handmade goods.
Since it was lunch time, food and a cold drink were definitely on our mind. We walked down the whole market before deciding on what we wanted to get. We ended up getting two different kinds of lemonade, mint and berry, as well as the most amazing fresh veggie burro for me, and grilled veggie burro for Scott.
The line for our drinks and lunches were super long, so it took us awhile to get our food, but the wait was definitely worth it.
It didn't take long for Scott and I to finish up our lunches, but while we ate we took in the sights of our beautiful surroundings. The mountain sitting in front of us was absolutely breathtaking, and all the kids running around, dogs playing fetch, and people enjoying a nice afternoon in the park around us made for the perfect atmosphere. If we didn't have more places to explore I could have stayed there all day.
See the ski lift going up the side of the mountain? I bet that is such a pretty ride in the winter!
Since our lunch wouldn't have been completely without dessert, we got freshly made donuts with powdered sugar. I am a huge donut fan, and these little o's were exceptional. I could have eaten an entire bag all by myself!
After lunch we went on a little walk along a nearby river. The water was crystal clear and freezing.
The surrounding scenery was so gorgeous. I felt like I was in a dream, wandering around in an enchanted forrest just waiting for something magical to happen.
This is one of the most beautiful places I have seen all summer.
We stopped on a cute bridge to take in the scenery before we headed into town to explore all of the local shops. If our afternoon adventure had ended right here I would have completely content. I had such an amazing time looking through the farmer's market, eating delicious food, and going on the prettiest walk with my love.
Soon after this photo was taken a large, yellow labrador got out of the river below us that it had been swimming in, walked onto the bridge, and shook out his fur as hard as he could. Scott and I were covered in spots of water from head to toe once he was done. It was just the funniest thing!
Do you ever go on nature walks?
