We're now in the picturesque little mountain town of Ouray - surrounded on three sides by massive mountain cliffs. It was close, but we both survived caloric overload from some of the best ice cream known to man. The Mouse's Chocolate & Coffee Shop tempted us with a #1 TripAdvisor rating so, of course, it was our travel planner duty to test the rating. Scott had a double scoop waffle cone that he says warranted its own zip cone - scoop #1 was cookie dough and scoop #2 was caramel swirl. I had the Oreo Lover's sundae that was also incredelicious and almost required a wheelbarrow to transport back to our room.
Tomorrow we've pledged to hike the Ouray perimeter trail, and at least 6 other multi-mile trails to work off at least a fraction of tonight's calorie consumption!
