It is no secret that the mountains surrounding Telluride are quite stunning and dramatic. However, one peak in particular seems to stand out, and you may recognize it from the Coors Light beer can. Wilson Peak, a popular 14’er to summit, stands at a prominent 14,023 ft. tall. This tall beauty is the subject of many photos taken in Telluride.
