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.
