IN 1889, BUTCH CASSIDY’S FIRST MAJOR RECORDED CRIME OCCURRED IN TELLURIDE, COLORADO, the county seat of San Miguel County. Cassidy robbed the San Miguel Valley Bank and made off with $24,580 or $665,943 in today’s dollars.
Currently, we have no plans to rob a bank, but can’t help but wonder how Butch would have spent 48 hours in Telluride with all that dough. The town of Telluride and Gateway Resort have invited us out and we plan to show you how to eat like royalty, play like a local and stay in style.
DAY THREE: TELLURIDE, COLORADO
Day three will start in a stream somewhere in Telluride. Anglers from Telluride Outside tell us this is the best way to take in the surrounding beauty and we can’t argue that point. We look forward to learning what it takes to land a trout from some of the finest streams in the Rocky Mountains.
Telluride is an angler’s paradise, and its rivers are full of trout and possibilities. After working up a healthy appetite on the river, Chef-Owner Chad Scothorn of The Cosmopolitan has invited us to dine with him and see why Wine Spectator has given The Cosmopolitan their Award of Excellence for 9 consecutive years.
