Lovely Ouray provides a tranquil backdrop to son Caleb and his equally Lovely "Sig. O." Kelli, in today's Lead Photo slot. Big smiles :).
The weather guessers have not been kind to campers/hikers this holiday weekend. We braved wind, cold, rain and snow to do Bear Creek Trail yesterday, then headed straight to the Ouray Hot Springs to get warm to the core… which necessitated a brief post-immersion nap (Zzzzzz). Then it was off to the Ouray Brewery, where we were further baptized (immersed) in heavenly IPA's and Stouts (Father, Son, Holy Ghost… Sign-of-the-cross, Amen). We washed down the brews with burgers as big as your gosh darn head.
Once safely home there occurred a mass indulgence in Bobbie's infamous Pumpkin/Chocolate-Brownie Dump Cake… to celebrate Caleb's 36th Birthday (Yikes). Oh the wretchedness of a food/beverage hangover. Maybe a little hair a the ole dawg would help…
