Posted by Maria Ziemba on Tue, Oct 23, 2012 @11:13 AM

As fall begins to fade, and winter unveils her intentions, the San Juans prepare for a season of festivities and a healthy dose of relaxation.

Once the snow begins to fall, sledding, ice skating and all kinds of skiing are just a short distance from your front door. Until then, the hiking trails are calling, with long luxurious soaks in the mineral hot springs beckoning, regardless of the weather.
Take a scenic drive, or just hang out in town, soaking, shopping and relaxing the days away! Truly a great place to either celebrate the holidays, or just take a much deserved break, Ouray County is a welcoming escape.

Friday, August 17, 2012 through November 17, 2012 - OCHS Otto MearsExhibit

As the last leaves fall, Southwest Colorado prepares for Winter Activities.

We have seen a spectacular season of fall this year, with colors still hanging on for the time being, however the high country has seen some winter storms, and soon will welcome the first snow of the season. Granted, there is no way to truly know when that will happen, and until then, the jeep trails are still open, but it is important to remember the weather can change in a heartbeat.
