WATER FIGHT!!! This is a Ouray 4th of July tradition dating way back to the mining days, in which 4 people (2 vs. 2) blast the hell out of each other with fire hoses, for as long as it takes until the losing team falls down or just can’t hold on to the hose any longer. It’s a ridiculous mix of hilarity and brutality, and as I look at these photos I still can’t stop laughing.
This year I got right up along the ropes and snapped some photos while getting completely drenched. Good times! Check out all my battle photos below.

Would it be wrong to call them hose monsters? Looks like a hoot!
Great Shot! Same view I had!
After only missing 2 summers since 85 we finally made our first Ouray 4th this year. Just discovered your work last year, can’t get enough, I was on that same corner using the awning of the store front to shed some of the spray, wish I could have met you. Keep it coming, love it all, but am particularly in awe of the skiing you manage to pull off.
