Escape to a Winter Wonderland in Southwest Colorado this season!

Shopping for Christmas presents can be a daunting task; the crowded department stores, the lack of supplies, and finding parking. Not to mention the fact that many of the gifts you buy are not as unique or memorable as you would like. The pressures of Christmas and New Year’s tend to extend beyond just the gifts. Maybe you will be having family or friends staying with you and are expected to prepare elaborate meals. Or perhaps you have fundraisers or other holiday events to run. All these added responsibilities can be overwhelming.

The holiday season is once again approaching. We celebrated Fall and Halloween in Ouray fashion, with revelry and dancing in ghoulish costumes all over town. Despite the sunshine, we prepare for a quiet November as the Indian Summer continues. The Box Canyon Lodge finally had to take down the flowers, which were still colorful, but beginning to show the inevitable signs of steadily colder days and nights.

Warm Weather continues into Daylight Savings in the San Juan Mountains!

October in Ouray was amazing. Every day, we watched with bated breath for the snow to fall, covering the earth with a blanket of white for Trick or Treaters to trudge through on a quest for the best candy in town.
