the original plan was to go snow shoeing (definitely a thing on my to-do list) but ryan has a cold and didn't feel up to that... so we went here instead(:
first, ouray is known for ice climbing... and we saw a lot of climbers (trust me, i never plan to be one, seems like the scariest thing a person could do.)
the gorgeous mountains:
|it's a long way down...|
and our family on the way out(:
then we went into town to get some hot chocolate (and i had the most delicious truffle known to mankind...)
AND my mom bought me a cookie cutter shaped like the united states. (seriously. it was $1.59).
and that, was just another day in my wonderful life(:
