Ouray, Colorado and Box Cañon Falls

On our last full day in Colorado, we took a little day trip to Ouray, Colorado (The Switzerland of America).  The drive was on the Million Dollar Highway which felt like we were driving on the edge of a cliff the whole two hours.  

The views were breathtaking, but I was terrified!  I was trying to be brave for the kids, but they were saying "Mom, it's ok!" Ouch.  I need to practice bravery a little better.  Our driver (Neil) was a champion driver and kept us safe the whole way there and back.

Our First Scenic Overlook Stop
We stopped at this overlook on the way there!
There were some Harley riders going up the Million Dollar Highway so we swapped taking each other's group pics!
Neil and the boys tried throwing rocks to a lake at the base of the overlook...Neil was the only one to make it!
These sweet babies!

Living our best life while the moms were souvenir shopping!

Switzerland of America!  A Little town nestled in between huge mountains
 After our little tour of Ouray and the Ouray brewery, we headed to a little hike called Box Canyon Falls.  They had it spelled two different ways so I will type both here.

We saw this bridge from the brewery and had no idea that we'd we walking across it.   It connects 2 mountains!

We headed back down to see the actual falls!

Henry loved his new Star Wars Ouray shirt and his dirty feet.

Bennett was not wanting this picture because he had just seen a sign that said "No flash photography!"

This girl trying to be in her Colorado chic with her river shoes and shirt and rocking her southern class with the shorts and the bow!

We walked all the way down to the water. It was the coolest!

Living our best lives!

These kids=awesome!

This picture is the best!  It just sums up how happy this trip made us all!  What a wonderful experience with some wonderful people!
