Road Trip Day 9 – Ouray and The Montrose Museum

03 Oct

Wednesday12th September 2018

Today we drove to Montrose for a two night stay so that we can explore The Great Sand Dunes and then The Black Canyon of the Gunnison, more about them tomorrow. It was a short drive to Montrose so we had some time to explore the delightful little town of Ouray before we left.

I love these Family Rules found in the dining room at Black Bear Manor

After an uneventful drive to Montrose, we spent a cool couple of hours in the eclectic little Historical Museum in Montrose, an absolute delight.
For those of you who have followed for a while, you may remember all the work I did for Until the Day Break in 2016, when I researched Mary Angove Gill who travelled to America on her own to join her fiancé who had left Cornwall to work in Colorado silver mines. They were married in Arapahoe and their son Foster was born in 1897.  It was so touching to be in mining country where Mary and her family lived, to see old photos and artefacts that brought her life even closer. If you put Until the Day Break into the search on this page, you will get all the links to our fabulous production or you could click this link to get just one.

    I lived in Ouray as a child! Those pictures really brought back some memories. 🙂 I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the US.

      I’m very happy that my photos brought back memories for you. We loved Ouray and wished we had had longer there. The people were lovely too, very welcoming. Thank you for your comment , lovely to wake up to! 🙂
