Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Day 4

Well, I guess all good things really must come to an end, even the 40th Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Day 4 was an excellent conclusion to a festival filled with dazzling talent, chill festivarians, and mind-blowing scenery. It was seriously difficult to leave. Thank you TBF and Telluride for the memories! 
I hope to see you again soon!

Béla Fleck played a really pretty early afternoon set.

The Infamous Stringdusters were fun live. It was cool to watch them smile and interact with each other on the stage.

For lunch, we took the gondola up to beautiful Mountain Village to check out the view.

And what a view it was!

Back in town, I did more wandering before heading back to TBF.

Hey dog!

It's legal, y'all.

One last walk to TBF...

Jackson Browne at sunset? Ummm OKAY! Here he is with Sarah Watkins and Sean Watkins.

My personal Jackson Browne highlight was when he played "These Days" with none other than Jerry Douglas on the slide. In fact, it was my favorite TBF moment.

The Drepung Monks completed their sand mandala on Sunday. It was truly remarkable to witness the process. The monks tour often, so if they happen to be coming to a town near you, please go see the mandala creation for yourself!

Enjoying the perfect ending to a perfect fest: listening to the Telluride House Band from the lawn.

After TBF, I was lucky enough to get one more day in Telluride so I went on an offroad adventure with my fiancé and her family. It was unreal. (Later that day, as I mentioned in a previous post, I watched the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup at Smuggler's. It seriously doesn't get any better.)

Imogene Pass. 13,144 feet above sea level. Wow.

Snow in June!

Man, I miss you Colorado!
