Cascade Falls

We stayed three days in Ouray, Colorado. It's a beautiful, quaint little town nestled into the mountains. It brings back many fond memories of my youth and I'm excited to share the town with my kids. We got to Ouray Sunday evening and got checked into our room. We stayed at the Rivers Edge hotel and it was indeed on the rivers edge. The place was beautifully landscaped and the rooms were spacious.

We walked into town looking for a bite to eat and ran into the toy store. With two excited children (and one young-at-heart grandpa), one can not just walk past a toy store. So in we went. It was a unique toy store in that they had a counter set up with logic games.....and they show you how to play them. Wesley thought this was great fun! I think grandpa walked out of there with three new games.

The next morning we took a nice hike up the the Cascade Falls. It was an easy hike which was good since we were still trying to acclimate to the high altitude. The kids sure enjoyed climbing rocks!

More tomorrow!

It's beautiful in the mountains of Colorado. Brings back memories of our summer trips to the cabin. Glad you all enjoyed it!
