Elevation 8750 ft. above


Telluride’s Rocky
Mountains are mostly
made up of the
sedimentary rocks
Conglomerate and
Limestone. These rocks
are located at a
longitude of 107.82
west and a latitude of
37.94 north in
southwest Co.
Telluride is in a u- shape valley
created by millions of years
of glacial activity. Thus, when
the large glacier melted it
deposited millions of tons of
sediment and rock creating a
landslide, forming Telluride.
Water location/special landforms
• Telluride’s water location
is the San Miguel river.
This river runs right next
to Telluride’s main street
( shopping area). The
San Miguel river gets a
fraction of its water basis
from Bridal Veil Water
Fall. Colorado’s largest
free falling water fall.
Historic Land Changes
• Historic land changes in Telluride are
when miners from the 1800’s came to
Telluride for zinc, coal, silver, and gold.
When they arrived they blew up the
mountain using dynamite. When they did
so, they turned boulders and large rock
into sediment, speeding the weathering
and erosion process there.
People
Living: people, animals ( bears, birds, pets ect. )
vegetation and organisms
Working: lift instructors, lodging, food services,
construction, retail services, education and
unemployed 6.8%
Buildings: Liberty Bell Mine Camp, Idarato mine, and
Telluride Christain Fellowship
Recreational activities: skiing, snow boarding, ice
skating, river rafting, fishing, and golf
Landform features: San Miguel river and the rocky
mountains
People go there: recreational activities, festivals, and
the stores
The time I went there
• The time I went Telluride I saw many layers of
conglomerate and limestone rock. In addition, I
also saw much evidence of chemical weathering
due to rust. I also saw that there was rock
abrasion happening because the flat rocks,
seen and felt in the river. People there had
adjusted to the harsh climates of Telluride, I
noticed this, because of the caution signs stating
to drive slow do to ice. When I went there I skied
using the landforms biosphere and geosphere.
The Sphere’s
Biosphere: all the
Living organisms
From people to
Pine trees.
Hydrosphere:
All the water basis in Telluride
there largest hydrosphere unit
is the San Miguel river. In
which, erosion happens
differently like by the suspend
load ( sediment flowing
down river) or by bed load
(sediment moved by
bouncing, sliding, or rolling)
The spheres
geosphere:
Is the rocky
Mountains
that run
Through
Telluride. Under
Telluride’s main crust there are large
Crystals that why mining was so
popular. Then there is mantle
lithosphere ( body of rock that
help plates move). Then there is
magma just
Like any area.


Atmosphere: is the change in
elevation, since most Residence
come from
other
towns.
