Day 56: Friday July 24th

Today we had to move to another RV park in Ouray because they had no space for tonight.  They told us the last week in July and first in August are the busiest time of the whole year.  We checked into “4 J’s Campground.”  We have stayed here a few times before.  We can walk to downtown and to the Ouray Hot Springs Pool (Rochelle and the kids favorite).

Jordan, Carlye, & Alyssa having a blast at the Ouray Hot Springs Pool.  The hot springs pool is approximately 750,000 gallons and there are three temperature levels: 1) cool enough for lap swimming; 2) intermediate, good for resting; and 3) hot tub temperature.

Below are a few pictures I took just after sunset.

Tomorrow we are leaving Ouray and heading to Leadville (not because we want to, but because all the RV Parks are full!)  Next time we need to reserve a place earlier…

  1. Beautiful shot of Crystal Lake! The hot springs look really fun. Too bad that Alyssa didn’t pass the swimming test. You really need to get her in the pool more often! 🙂
    PS–The pool at your house is also 100 deg–but maybe not as relaxing as Colorado…
