Horray for Ouray

Here are some pics from our 5th annual trip to Ouray over the long New Year's weekend. It was a great trip of soaking at the hot springs, speed scrabble (sounds pretty geeky but it was fun), skiing, ice climbing, freezing temperatures, fireworks, being a bunch of nerds with MacBooks, and of course no trip would be complete without something going wrong and some kind of drama. This year was a car accident. Good thing no one was hurt though.
Good Times. . . .

Probably the only picture of Casey ice climbing. Poor Casey, always taking the superb photos but never being in any.




These two photos are of me on my favorite route. Super long but easy. I love ice climbing because you feel like such a bad ass when you are doing it even if it's not that hard.


I love my big puffy down coat (and of course Casey too!) I think I have on six layers in this picture. It was the coldest trip we have had so far.

That trip was WAY cold! Casey and Jared are so cute in their matching softshells. We need to get some trip photos from you!

What a beautiful place. Isn't Ouray in Colorado? I think I've been there. I can't believe that's you climbing that ice--you're hard core!!

Yes, Ouray is in Colorado. It is a really pretty, cute little town. It reminds me of Park City before all the tourists and hype. And thanks Liz for thinking I am hard core. Too bad It's deceiving . . .
