Spring Break Ahead?
We are starting to think about Spring up here. No robins yet but you can hear the birds challenging each other in Box Canyon Park as they get ready for spring and Big Horn sheep have been spotted on the road. The days are definitely longer and the sun is getting more intense.
That said, we have new snow so we have sledding and spring cross country skiing. We have snowmobiling. We still have lots of great ice for climbing and we have hot springs.
What else do you need for a perfect spring break getaway. So make your plans for your spring break trek to the San Juan mountains and beautiful, affordable Ouray. Call us at 970 325 7222 or book your room on line. We look forward to seeing you.
