He has had the great fortune to travel to over fifty countries. “I have seen the most amazing and beautiful places on our planet, but I have chosen the most beautiful, Telluride, to call my permanent home.”

Telluride

Stewart’s love for Telluride goes back to his childhood. Each year his family would leave the heat of the Texas summers for the freshness and beauty of the San Juan Mountains. He has wonderful memories of hiking, camping and learning to fly fish in the pristine mountain rivers. Stewart remembers Telluride in the early 1970’s. Each summer he and his family would drive the jeep over Black Bear pass and enjoy ice cream floats at the Old Drug Store on Main Street, the very building where he makes his office today.
