Ourayale House Night of Amusement

Here is a clip of some interesting things happening in Ouray at the Ourayale House. Hutch, the proprietor, opened up in January 2008 and his place is gaining in popularity.

He makes a great beer and it is quite entertaining. He is opened nightly at 6pm but if you knock at his door and he is around, he typically just lets you in anytime...

Even Later on Saturday Night -- O'Briens Pub

Just a small glimpse into the late night crowd in Ouray.

From the girl on the scene: Karen

All's Well @ Ouray Chalet Inn on Saturday Night!

Checking out the town, here is Lora Slaw... at the Chalet. It is quiet here, but, that is because of all the hooting and hollering out and about.

Ouray Polar Bears

In Ouray, the Hot Springs Pool is a welcome relief after a long snow. The pool is open year round and is a great place to get some much needed exercise. There are lap lanes (ranging in temperatures from 65 - 76 Fahrenheit in the winter -- Today it was a balmy 68.).

A second pool contains water that is about 96 degrees and many people come Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings for a little water aerobic workout and finish up with a little social hour

Yesterday we received about 12 inches of snow so today with the BlueBird Skies, it was stunningly beautiful.

I hope you enjoy the show!

Denim of Antiquity

Nancy Wolkin, the proprietor of Denim of Antiquity invited me into her store today so that I could get a feel for her shop.

She sells one of a kind denim jackets. She purchases denim jackets of all kinds and then uses antique fabrics to dress them up and they are really cool.

Her shop is at 450 Main Street in Ouray Colorado. Take the tour. It is really very interesting.
