Ouray Aug 16 thru 22, 2009
 
We just got back from a week in Ouray, it was our first trip to the area and it was fantastic! We have a bunch of pictures and I will post some up in the next couple of days.

One of the days we got up at sunrise to run Poughkeepsie Gulch, here is a video of Jo (my :Princess:) driving up 'the wall'. No one to hold the camera so it is a strange angle....

She did most of the driving this trip and I think it is going to be hard to get the keys from her on future runs!
:D

Very :cool:

I ran into some folks one day in a Jeep at the top there where Poughkeepsie Gulch meets up with Hurricane Pass or Corkscrew (can't remember which one)...

The guy had this :eek: look on his face and was asking me which way was the quickest and easiest way down to the highway and back to Ouray...Discovered that he was in a rental Jeep, got lost, and had just come up Poughkeepsie Gulch...His :Princess: and kids were not amused with him and wanted to go home....

No idea, it was a ways up from the switchbacks and on a part of the trail that I don't know how you would roll a vehicle unless you were going about 50mph

great shots

thanks for sharing. I just did Engineer Pass a month back and could have spent another month down that way just exploring.

Good looking berries-they seem late this year from all the moisture.

Will,
Thanks for sharing the :cool: pictures. I love the kids sleeping.
