There is plenty to be Thankful for in Southwest Colorado this November!


turkeyWith the early snow blanketing the mountaintops, the holiday season in Ouray is off to a beautiful start. Walk the shops on Main Street and find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. There is something magical about the one of a kind treasures to be found that speak volumes to even the most difficult person on your Christmas list!

A scenic drive is ideal when the seasons are changing. every corner promises some new sight- whether it is fresh fallen snow, or the last leaves cingint to an aspen tree. Elk and deer are a constant addition to the scenery. Driving the Million Dollar Highway is always an adventure! Of course, even if you are planning on just staying in and enjoying the mineral hot springs, Ouray, with its natural mineral hot springs is definately the best option! 

Often when you visit a town with hot springs, the smell of sulfer is prevalent; not so in Ouray! And at the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs, there are four tubs just outside your room that provide the perfect relaxation spot as you prepare for the busy holiday season to come. And there is always something to do:
