A shot of Uncompahgre Mountains from the 'Switzerland of America' lookout point in Ouray, Colorado.
Ouray, Colorado is a Home Rule Municipality that is the county seat and the most populous city of Ouray County, Colorado, United States. The city population was 813 at the U.S. Census 2000 and 1,000 as of the U.S. Census 2010. The Ouray Post Office has the ZIP code 81427.
Ouray is set in one of the most magnificent locations in Colorado. Surrounded by high mountain walls dominated by Mount Abrams to the south, and the awe inspiring Amphitheater to the east, Ouray is truly the Gem of the Rockies. Today the town's history is very evident in its well preserved historic structures. While tourism is a strong contributor to the local economy, Ouray has escaped the excesses of over-development. Make no mistake, this is not Telluride. Real people live here, and real people visit here, to hunt, hike and jeep the high country above town. If you visit in the winter, bring your ice climbing gear or cross country skis. Whenever you visit, bring your camera.
