My Adventures in Telluride, Colorado (by )

I don't know why, but I had this strange desire to attend the annual Telluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado.  I wanted to do this so much it made it my bucket list.   I loved the idea of the Festival parade which seemed like a small town parade where folks dressed up as mushrooms.

Hearing about the great mushrooms in Colorado did not hurt either.  This year, I finally managed to get this Festival on my schedule and I was not disappointed.
