Ouray and Ridgway Happenings this March and April 2014

  
  
  

Spring Ushers in Great Fun In Ouray And Ridgway!

outsideMarch and April are considered a time of renewal in Southwest Colorado. Often, instead of gentle showers, we have springtime snowfall, making this an awesome time for last minute winter activities.

Of course, Spring in Ouray County is kind of like any other season; you just don't know what you may find! One day, there is a cloudy sky filled with giant flakes of snow silently falling to the ground in a Christmas card scene, the next, the sun breaks through and blue skies accent the majesty of snow covered peaks, while we enjoy a day of sledding and soaking in short sleeves and tennis shoes!
