the ouray mining park… is a very strange park. it’s a collection of old rusty mining equipment, coils of hoses, and a large wooden beam with nails poking out of it… perfect for the kids.

box canyon in ouray, colorado is an exquisite canyon filled with a jumbled mess of old mining equipment, pipes to hot springs, and metal walkways… of course they’ve turned it into a tourist attraction

the best thing about climbing into the canyon is the noise… the falls, which are hidden behind a rock wall, are so loud that you can’t have a conversation with somebody right next to you
