Ouray is a charming small town in the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado. Originally a mining town, it has a historic main street surrounded by mountains. The Beamount Hotel, on the right side of the photo, was built in 1886 and is still in operation today. In 2013, it was named the #1 Hotel in the West by Conde' Nast Traveler Magazine. This view of Ouray park is taken from the perimeter trail overlooking the city in the early morning. If you take the trail, get a map from the visitors center or online first as it is difficult to find in some spots, but well worth the views. The Lower Cascade Falls are simple and cooling with their mist, located along the Perimeter Trail that encircles Ouray. I almost walked right by this blooming cactus. Thank goodness my wife saw it and waited while I took some pics. #patterns
Along the Sutton Mine Trail just south of Ouray, Colorado. View from Neosho Mine at the end of the Sutton Mine Trail south of Ouray, Colorado. Million Dollar Mornings on Million Dollar Highway ☺️ Looking up at the high bridge over Box Canyon, built in 1900 by the Bollen Bridge Company to support water pipes that criss-crossed the canyon where miners searched fruitlessly for gold. It is now a walking bridge that takes you into a tunnel in the side of the canyon wall - all part of an excellent hike along the Ouray perimeter trail. Easy hike to amazing views! At the base of Cascade Falls #ouray #colorado #cascadefalls #waterlust Waterfalls roar into a slot canyon so loudly you cannot hear one another speak. The descent is via scaffolding from the rim. #waterfalls Jeeping on the trails around Ouray.

Beautiful and cool, this waterfall can be seen on the Sutton Mine Trail south of Ouray, Colorado. Inside of Box Canyon #boxcanyon #ouray #colorado Panoramic view outside of Ouray. Strikingly beautiful mountain area. One of my all time favorite places The view of the amphitheater from Sutton Mine Trail. This is an artistic memorial to Sue and Karen, who perished while ice climbing in Alaska, dedicated by their family and friends. It is situated at the base of the Ouray Ice Park, a premier climbing locale situated in dynamic Box Canyon and along the Ouray Perimeter Trail which is an excellent 5-hour round trip hike. We took a day trip to the hot springs in Ouray while camping in Silverton. It was so nice and relaxing and has pools of different temperatures so you can find the one that suits you and the weather. They had really nice bathrooms and showers which was convenient since the campground didn't have showers!
