March 21st, 2009

Its been a long time since I've written, which was exactly my fear before I created a blog....that I just wouldn't keep it up. But oh well, this is mainly for me anyway. I am three weeks post one of the most relaxing vacations I've had in a while! I went to Ouray, Colorado to visit a friend I hadn't seen in six years. She owns a quaint, peaceful little gift shop specializing in all kinds of unique yummy gifts, clothing, and candles. Her and her husband also own a coffee roasting company called Exotic Earth Coffee Roasters. Suffice it to say I drank amazingly delicious coffee every morning, and many evenings, of my six day fact, here is a picture of me running my fingers through 5 pounds of freshly roasted coffee...imagine how wonderful this smelled!

Ouray is located at 9,000 feet above sea level, nestled in the middle of the San Juan Mountain Range, population: 850 year round residents. The air (once I got used to it after the first 24 hrs) was clear and refreshing. We enjoyed natural hot springs, local breweries, (that did not serve food, oddly enough) and canyon falls that were awe-striking. I will remember the scenes of this vacation and enjoy my memories and pictures for a long time to come....
