Just give them belly rubs and they’re fine.
Tumblr Lesson 22a: never leave Brenna hanging.
Ouray’s Stats/Details/Fun Facts/Not-so-Fun Facts:
Elevation - 7800 feet
Population - 900 full time residents
Mountains - The San Juans, in which Ouray is enveloped, have the highest concentration of 12, 13 and 14 thousand foot peaks in the lower-48.
Ice Climbing - home to the famed Ouray Ice Park and the renowned International Ice Climbing competition each January (2015 dates are Jan 8-11).
Jeeping - apparently we are one of ‘the’ places to Jeep. I’ve never done it (I use my legs to go up mountains) but will take the chamber’s word for it.
Water I - our tap water is bottled water quality, literally.
Water II - our town’s pool is fed by natural hot springs and has three sections: a 70s-degree section, a 90s-degree section and a 110-degree section. It’s incredible in the winter when it’s cold and snowing at night.
Groceries - 40 miles, each way, to the closest legit grocery store.
Inbreeding - nearly everyone in this town is a cousin of someone else. Kind of scary in a West Virginia holler kind of way.
Me - Every town has its downside. Sadly, I’m Ouray’s.
That’s probably enough from my dumb ass today :). Have a great weekend!
