Friends just returned and loved the experience provided by Telluride Wranglers. You take a horse drawn wagon through aspen and pine forests and then enjoy a chuck wagon style BBQ provided by a private chef.  The menu features a number of burgers and sides. The company also features trail rides and sleigh rides in the winter.
