A wedding in Ouray....

No trip to Ouray is complete without a visit to Cedar Hill Cemetery. Paul has a lot of family history there, and it's just a beautiful spot.

The grounds were alive with chipmunks this day.

This one makes its home very near the family plot.

He/she was kind enough to pose for our camera.

I love wandering around looking at the various headstones, and there is a great variety displayed here. This one is particularly beautiful, with its patina of orange lichen.

Just some of my favorites...

Oh, yeah! There was a wedding to go to! Jacquie and Derek were married on the Potter Ranch, out in one of the pastures, with some picturesque outbuildings as their backdrop.

The ceremony was short and sweet. If I'd been seated in a slightly different spot, you would see Mount Abrams behind the minister.

The ring bearer was the bride's nephew. He wasn't thrilled with the wind, and found a clever way to hold the pillow while protecting his ears.

Mount Abrams is on the far left in this shot.
The bridesmaids were sisters of the bride, and the flower girl, I believe is the niece of the groom. Her very frilly dress was worn over purple western boots.

Which is perfect, because the bride was wearing her western boots too!

We were treated to a colorful sunset on the way home.
