Jet setters and those in television and film might find Telluride more enjoyable, those with a heighten sense of natural beauty might prefer Ouray. Other areas of Colorado which are remarkable and in which there is often a great deal of land available is in and around Red Rocks Amphitheater and the town of Morrison.
