Bright Lights of Ouray

Ouray, Colorado, lights, October

Here’s a photo of Ouray, as seen from our new favorite “wine and cheese” spot. “Wine and cheese” you ask? Yes, one of Claudia and I’s favorite ways to unwind is to haul a bottle of wine and our plastic wine glasses up to a viewpoint and relax for the evening. Especially after a day stuck inside in front of the computer, fresh air and a fresh perspective works wonders to clear the head. Not to mention that wine is good for you, and so is hiking… a win-win situation!

Claudia and I have gone on wine hikes in Peru, Argentina, Chile, Germany, and Switzerland. Someday we will co-author a guidebook to the world’s best wine and cheese spots. The only problem with that plan is that I know next to nothing about wine, and definitely nothing about writing about it! So maybe it will be a picture book instead, with scratch-and-sniff stickers. Lest you think I’m just joking around about all this, I officially own the domain name WineHiking.com. Yes, that was a spontaneous purchase, but hey… you never know!

Wine over Ouray

Here’s my first attempt at the photos I’ll need to be taking for our wine hiking encyclopedia. Here we have a tasty Malbec from Mendoza, along with some kind of Swiss cheese. It was good. I liked it a lot.

Yeah, I guess I need to work on my writing skills…

  1. Ah….my brother is a rather famous wine maker! Google Duncan Williams! Your mom knew him when he was but a little tyke!

  2. Jack,

    Love that first shot. What can be better than your wife, wine, and a hike…in the mountains? Hard to top that, I think.

  3. It was good. I liked it a lot.

    Hahahaha! I can feel like I’m there tasting this decadent treat! Good thing you take damn good pictures Jack 🙂 Hopefully Claudia’s a better writer?
