Ouray
The Ouray pool is definitely not clothing optional - it is a family oriented municipal pool. Silverton is nicer than Durango, but has no good dining - just burgers &c. There's a pretty ok M...

Re: Re: Re: Hammer Perpetuem
I don't use Perp any more because I'm too cheap. I purchase maltodextrin & waxy maize in bulk, mix with protein powder. But it's about the same, other than flavoring. You can pretty...
