Ouray Colorado Vacation Guide and Trip Planning Information for SW Colorado
Any day in Ouray County is one to remember. The beauty of this tiny town, nestled at the base of the Uncompahgres is breathtaking. It is close to impossible to find a view anything less than spectacular. The fresh mountain air is crisp and clean in the winter months, and soaking in the all natural mineral hot springs even more magical when the air is filled with steam as giant flakes of snow land on the water all around.

The Ouray Elks Lodge works all year, holding special events, BBQ's and meetings in order to raise money for the community. The funds these hardy volunteers raise are used to help pay medical expenses for some, scholarships to deserving students, and FUN! Perhaps one of the most touching events is when Santa comes to town. Elk members hold a special potluck dinner a week or so before Christmas, to help out Santa and his elves by stuffing dozens upon dozens of stockings. On Christmas Eve, several members of the club offer their services even further to St. Nick by becoming honorary elves for the evening, driving him to and fro, across Ouray County in whatever weather, to help him deliver gifts and good cheer.
