Ouray Ice Festival 2013

The Original Trip Report on ADVENTR.CO

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.

Ouray Ice Festival 2012

Sunday, January 8, 2012

On Sunday, Amanda and I headed down to watch the ice climbers at the Ouray Ice Festival. We have always wanted to go check it out, so it was nice to finally make it down there. I’m not a climber of any sorts (and have no interest in starting), but it was definitely fun to watch.

This is not my usual ‘photography subject,’ but it was fun trying to take photos of something new. Here’s some of the photos I took while we were there.
