Keltin and I love exploring little towns. They are quirky and typically have good food and old buildings that present great opportunities for photos – Ouray was no exception. We were starving by the time we got there but it was still a bit too early for lunch so we wandered and found a bookstore. We didn’t pick up a new book but the guy was helpful in telling us some good places to eat and where to do a mini hike. More on both of those to come!
Something that we both enjoy doing is picking up a postcard and mailing it from the city so that it has the local post mark. Its easy, inexpensive and lets family know that we are thinking of them.
A running joke of mine when traveling is that you can always find an Irish pub – no matter the country or city. I’ve found one in Florence and heard about on in China; and Ouray was no exception. We didn’t go in but I had to snap a picture.
Most of the shops had touristy things but they are still always fun to look at. I would love to stay in Ouray – there is a lot of good hiking around that we didn’t get to do. Eventually we will hike Mt. Sneffels – a Colorado 14er! Have you ever been to Ouray? Happy travels!
Thank you KW Photography for allowing me to use your wonderful photo!
