Ouray, nestled in the San Juan Mountains is known as the “Switzerland of America” for its deep valley, which is surrounded by high peaks. Sitting near the headwaters of the Uncompahgre River, Ouray is named for the Chief of the Uncompahgre Utes in the late nineteenth century. Located on Hwy 550, Ouray is the perfect base camp for exploring and hiking in the Mt. Sneffels Wilderness Area.
