Sunday and Ouray (rhymes with Hooray)
Yesterday started with Hav-a- heart success. I live trapped our little mouse and let it out in the morning. I used Crisco as bait, and sonic boxes to do whatever it is they're supposed to do. It was hard to open the trap and take a picture at the same time, especially since once I let a rat out this way and it ran up my leg!
We went to Ouray on Saturday, a lovely town we hadn't been to in three years. It was so quiet there I could stand in the middle of Main St. and take this picture:
The Elks club had a Halloween event planned for that evening. Think it's the right spot?
The town is very pretty and empty, but they had a Main Street Art Supply store- shocking, and Jon treated me to a watercolor set. Hope I make up my mind to put it to use.
Later was the best part. There are radioactive springs in Ouray, and a big public hot springs spa and pool, outdoors, with HOT water, and lanes for swimming too. We soaked and later I swam. I left my camera in the car.
I love natural thermo occurences. When I went to Yellowstone I was beside myself, I found it so exciting-- those bubbling pots and weird mud events. Someday I want to visit Iceland...
Smoke from the L.A. fires has drifted to Colorado..
Goodtimes has a nice blog on Ouray here.
