Seasonal Waterfalls and Wildflowers Abound in the High Country Around Ouray!
The past week has been absolutely beautiful in Ouray.With temperatures in the 70's in the day, and the occasional afternoon shower to cool things off, this is indeed one of the best times to visit.
As the sun melts snow from the upper mountain peaks, seasonal waterfalls seem to appear magically, showering the land in much needed moisture, creating oasis after oasis of deep green vegetation and rainbows of wildflowers.
The surrounding wildlife are healthy and prolific, and it is almost more unusual to spend an entire day without seeing a deer or fox than the other way around!
Every day, it seems, there are more passes to explore, and the scenery is, as usual, breathtaking!
At theBox Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs, we make it our business to have the most up to date information on the jeep trails. From County websites, talking to the jeep tour companies, and of course, our guests, we find out where it is safe for you to explore, and share the information as often as possible.
