Box Canyon Lodge in Ouray, Colorado


The Box Canyon Lodge is now our favorite mini-vacation spot.
We had a wonderful relaxing mid-week getaway in Ouray, Colorado.

(Pictures from the town of Ouray here.)

Looking from the main office building towards our room.

Multiple levels of hot tubs, open from 8am-10pm.

The water temperature was perfect.
Bring some shoes that are easy to slip into (and out of).

This picture just makes me want to get back in the water.
Outside... Brrrr! Inside... Ahhhh!

View of the lodge and tubs from the third level.
We received several inches of snow on the first day.
Sitting in the hot tubs with snow coming down was the best!

While there is no doubt that the real attractions here are the hot
tubs and the city of Ouray itself, the lodge also had a very large
selection of complementary movies on DVD, perfect for late
nights, after the town of Ouray rolls up the sidewalks.

The second day the sky cleared, giving us
beautiful views of the surrounding landscape.

So different than the day we first arrived, when the
mountains in the background could not even be seen.

Stay tuned for the Ouray pics.
