We made our annual trip to Ouray, Colorado, over a long weekend.  Brian, Jeff, Kevin, and I left Denver around 5:30 Saturday morning and rolled into town shortly before noon after a stop at the Stockyard in Delta, Colorado, for brunch.  This year we decided to rent a house which ended up being a great idea.  After gearing up, we each ran a couple laps in New Funtier before moving to some harder and more sustained routes in the Schoolroom.  Again, we each climbed a couple of laps and then went back to the house where George and Abby Barnes were cooking up a storm in the gourmet kitchen.  They made a pot of dark beer chili that was excellent.  A few of us sat in the hot tub a while while enjoying a beer.
