Box Canyon at Box Canyon Lodge
Buckskin Booksellers. Lined with shelves of books and a rack of magazines, I quickly settle into browsing mode. The bookstore contains a great selection of local authors and maps as well as bestsellers and classics. What writer can resist that kind of offering?
There are plenty of fine restaurants including the local Ouray Brewery, to feed your appetite. And be sure to stop by Mouse’s Chocolates and Coffee for a tempting bite (or two!) of delicious homemade chocolates, cookies and decadent ice cream treats.
