No matter how many times you visit, Ouray’s views slam you in the face every time. Sandwiched between imposing peaks, tiny Ouray just might be that little bit of paradise John Denver waxes lyrical about in ‘Rocky Mountain High.’ Here the mountains don’t just tower over you, they actually embrace you – the peaks leave barely quarter of a mile of valley floor in town!
The visitor center (970-325-4746; www.ouraycolorado.com; 1220 Main St; 9am-5pm) is at the hot-springs pool.
