"The History of the Alpine Loop," a presentation by Rudy Davison 1:00 p.m., at the Telluride Historical Museum FREE event. Learn more about the The Alpine Loop in Southwest Colorado at the Museum's August 16-18 tour of this historic region. Part of the National Scenic Byway system, miles of the Loop's trails were forged by miners in the late 1800s who came in search of silver, gold, lead, and zinc. These hardy pioneers carved a network of roads through this rugged terrain to enable them to transport ore and supplies by mule-drawn wagons.
