A must see in Ouray! We hiked to the Box Canyon Falls from our motel, paid $3 a piece, visited with all the little chipmunks and began an exciting adventure to the Falls. I do not recommend sandals or flip-flops. You will wind around and down to a most incredible sight, but I'm not gonna ruin the surprise. On your journey keep your eyes open for nesting Black Swift birds and be sure to look up Sue-the Bird Lady. She is an amazing ornithologist who is just full of interesting information. She goes to the Canyon every single day to document the daily activities of her bird-friends. After traveling down into the gorge (I hope I didn't spoil the surprise.), be sure to travel back up to the bridge that spans the surprise. It is a relatively short but steep climb to the bridge. You will be in for more adventures when you hike through the tunnel and walk the permimeter of Little Switzerland of America! You will want to sing "The Hills are alive with the Sound of Music!" Do not miss this wonder of nature.
