Ouray Ice Festival 2013

Saturday, January 12, 2013

On Saturday we battled the frigid temperatures to visit the annual Ouray Ice Festival. We check it out last year for the first time and had a lot of fun, so we made sure to return again this year. We arrived early and spent most of the day watching the competition and the other ice climbers in the park. Even though the temperatures were colder than usual, we still had a great time. Attending the Ice Festival just might continue to become one of our annual traditions.

Color Sunday at Powderhorn

Today, Amanda and I headed up to Powderhorn Ski Resort for their Color Sunday event. We wanted to ride the ski lift and check out the Fall Colors while we were up there. Luckily we got there when we did, as there was no line for the lift. However, after our ride the line for the lift was very long! The ride too almost an hour and the colors on the Grand Mesa were changing nicely. We had fun. After our ride, we had some lunch and checked out the resort before heading back home. I also checked the place out, since I am planning on trying skiing for the first time this winter 😉

Here’s a few photos I snapped while we were on the lift.

Staring up, we were facing the sun the whole way…
