Toma, Maggie and I piled into the car early Saturday morning and headed up into the San Juan Mountains for an overnight visit with friends. Our friends have a little summer house in the town of Ouray, Colorado.
Ouray is an old Silver mining community that sits between 7,000 - 8,000 feet. The reason that I say between is because one end of town begins at around 7,000 feet and the other end climbs to around 8,000 feet. It is all nestled between three 14,000 foot mountains that tower over the whole area. It is a page from its mining past even though its livelihood now relies predominately on tourism.
Jackie, Toma, Donna and Maggie!
