Not every stop on our trip was a rousing success. We had heard that the waterfall in Ouray was a must see from a few people. After these reviews we tacked on a side trip to Ouray and were excited to see this gem of a town.
The town was pretty cute. It was nestled in high mountains that gave it the feeling of a Swiss hamlet.
We were excited to see what the waterfall was like.
But then we got closer and thought that if the sound matched the visual we were in for an awesome walk.
Then we got to the end of the path and this was all we could see.
we thought that maybe if we walked down the staircase we’d get a better view.
Nope. Same view! (this is a pic of the other direction)
So then we thought we’d hike the steep trail. That must have an amazing overhead view.
This wasn’t a very long trail, but it was pretty steep. We were hoping that it would pay off.
It didn’t. This is a view of the stream from above. There was absolutely no view of the waterfall. Fail! We did have a good view of the town of Ouray.
After our failed trip we hopped in the car and were off to our next destination!
