Here’s an idea for a great weekend trip- Ouray! Never heard of it? Don’t be ashamed; not all Coloradans have, but that’s because it’s not exactly central Colorado. This place may be a bit of a drive to get to, but it would be well worth your while!
Nestled in the San Juan Mountains about an hour from Telluride is this great little mining town that has turned itself in to a great tourist attraction. It’s biggest pull? The AMAZING hot springs pool located right as you pull in to town! This is a sulfur free pool which acts as a great way to relax after a day spent riding down mountains or hiking up them.There are hotter pools for the ones who just want to soak, a larger lap pool, and even a slide for kids. While basking in the heat, you can’t help be in awe at the beautiful views!
Another great place to check out while you’re in town is Box Canyon Falls. A short hike reveals a beautiful, deep and narrow canyon full of a rushing water that truly is a wonder. These falls are definitely worth a quick trip to see.
Don’t miss out on seeing this amazing Colorado treasure- Ouray!
