Really and truly I love Ouray. It's a beautiful place. On Saturday after we old people were done with all of our early-morning exercising, we were off to Ouray.
We spent a couple hours hiking in the mountains. It was pretty. And pretty scary, too. Not a hike for little children. Amazingly, there wasn't much complaining from the kids - once from Jonas (a true miracle) a fit from Miles, and some moans from Emmy. That was it. But it was a quite steep climb at times with a couple hundred feet drop-off cliff following along side us for a bit. Won't do that again. But still had a good time.
We then went into town and hung out at the park and discovered that right next to the park and the hot-springs pools there is this really cool pond filled with huge and not-so-huge fish and turtles. I loved this place. So neat.
I'm glad we did NOT check the weather before we left. Had we of we maybe would have decided against going out since there were passing thunderstorms and rain. But we survived the rain and thunder and especially enjoyed the cool-down it gave the town.

Finally, a cute picture of Miles. Hard to come by. (not because he isn't cute. but because he just can't do a natural smile for the camera.)
