Know before you go

~The Ouray Way

当您游览科罗拉多州的Ouray时,请确保您为您的冒险做好了充分的准备. 在高海拔地区,当涉及到用户准备时,我们与许多其他目的地有很多不同. 请参阅下面准备的提示和负责任娱乐的“户外方式”.

  • Mask in the dirt

    Pack out what you pack in

    Pack it in, pack it out. Or pick it up to leave a place better than you found it. Put litter, even crumbs, peels and cores in your nearest waste/recycling bin.记得带一个专门装垃圾的袋子

    • Ouray游客中心有中型的烟雾熊垃圾袋,你可以拿起来使用

    • Wash yourself, your dog or whatever else needs cleaning at least 200 feet from waterways, 使用可生物降解的肥皂. 泡泡浴对鱼来说可不是一种享受.

  • Toilet Paper

    留下你的尿尿,不是你的T.P

    卫生纸需要很多年才能生物降解. 它还能吸引动物,对它们有害.

    • 一定要带自封袋,这样你就可以把卫生纸放在袋子里,直到你把它处理掉

    • If you have to poo, walk at least 70 steps from trails, water and people. 挖一个6英寸深的洞,在洞里做你的事情,盖上它,把你的厕纸拿出来. 或者,使用wag袋(在大多数户外商店都可以找到的一次性袋子),这样你就可以打包你的垃圾了.

    • 如果你的狗狗需要上厕所, please pick up after them with doggie bags (can be found around town, 所以,如果你忘了你的东西,就囤积起来吧)

  • Woman Hiking

    Stick to the Trails

    无论你是徒步探险还是骑自行车,一定要坚持走在小路上.

    • Even though shortcuts can be tempting, please don’t take them. 在这条路上多走几步就能保护植物和真正的当地人的家园.

    • Melting snow and rain leave trails and vegetation more open to damage. 一定要坚持走小路,走在小路的中间——即使是湿的, muddy, slushy or icy — to avoid erosion and damage to trailside plants.

    • 一定要穿结实的鞋子——比如绝缘的, waterproof hiking boots — so you can always stick to the trail, 特别是在春天和初夏,因为积雪融化,小路更容易潮湿和泥泞.

    • With tons trails and campsites, there’s no need to venture beyond. By sticking to these areas and camping at least 200 feet from lakes, rivers and streams, 你是在帮助自然区域保持自然.

  • Colorado Wild Flowers

    Leave it as you Find it

    When you are exploring Ouray, please refrain from taking nature from its home. 这包括不采摘野花. 相反,要拍很多很多的照片!

    • 把你发现的植物、岩石和历史物品留下,这样别人就能体验到发现的乐趣.

    • 我们的2000多种不同的野花中的任何一种都将永远存在于照片中. 拍下来,但只能用相机.

    • 科罗拉多本身就很美. Building structures or campsites on public land isn’t cool. 保持纯净,让每个人都能享受.

    • 尊重所有的生物. Carving or hacking plants and trees may kill or disfigure them.

  • Camp Fire

    Be Careful with Fire

    Ouray sits at 7,792 feet. Being in high terrain we do have low humidity, and dry air. With that combination, it can create dangerous fire conditions.

    • Keep campfires small and manageable to avoid sparking wildfires.

    • When putting out a fire, water it until you can handle the embers. 不要让火在无人看管的情况下燃烧.

    • 在科罗拉多州干燥的气候中吸烟时要小心. Always put cigarettes out completely and don’t leave your butts behind.

    • 经常检查当地的消防限制.

    • Regardless of the season, avoid making fires in areas where there is little or no dead and down wood, 大火会在哪里留下疤痕, 或者在停车场和岔路口.

  • 蓝色并排停在岩石上

    SHARE OUR TRAILS & PARKS

    很有可能你不是在大自然中观看,所以尝试不太知名的路径和地点. Make sure you are courteous to all while exploring Ouray. 请参阅我们的“你准备好了吗??,关于谁有通行权.

    • 在进入大自然之前,请将手机静音,不要使用扬声器功能,轻声说话.

    • 当你在山路上超过别人的时候,要体谅别人,给爬山的人和骑自行车的人让路——他们需要动力.

    • Listen to nature. Keep your voice and music soft so all can enjoy the peace of Colorado.

    • 在路上靠近其他人时,把噪音降到最低,让大自然的声音占主导地位.

  • Two brown bears

    Keep Wildlife Wild

    Colorado is home to tens of thousands of furry, scaly and feathered creatures. 为了保证他们和你的安全,不要接近他们.

    • Do not feed wildlife no matter how hungry you think they might look.

    • 当你享受狗狗友好的小径时,把你的毛茸茸的伙伴拴好,把它们的排泄物打包出去. 一直到垃圾桶.

    • 所有的野生动物,从松鼠到驼鹿,都必须加倍努力才能在冬天生存. Observe all wildlife from a distance, and do not follow or pursue them. Fleeing forces them to burn energy they need to survive the colder months.

    • 春天对野生动物来说是一个特别敏感的时期,因为许多物种都在筑巢, 生孩子或从冬眠中苏醒的. Be sure to travel quietly and give all wildlife extra space during this time.

  • Mountain Lion on rock

    Encountering Wildlife

    While it is rare to encounter a black bear or mountain lion along a trail, 我们确实和他们共享高山环境. 不要接近、惊吓或喂食任何野生动物,尤其是有幼崽的熊或狮子. If you encounter a bear: stay calm, back away, and speak softly. 离开小路,让熊离开.

    如果你遇到狮子:抬起手臂或打开外套,让自己看起来更大. 永远不要转身就跑. 抱起小孩子,不要让他们跑.

  1. 避免污染水源

  2. 避免与昆虫和动物接触

  3. Maximize decomposition

  4. 尽量减少对社会的影响

处置不当会导致水污染, the spread of illnesses, 而那些追随的人也会有不愉快的经历.

*准备一个装人粪的垃圾袋

定位设施/外屋

Carry waste out

Cat holes | 在离水、营地、小径和排水处至少200英尺的地方挖6-8英寸.

Urine | 远离营地和其他尿液可能集中和滞留的高使用率区域排尿. 饮食中缺乏盐分的动物,如山羊和骡鹿,有时会使植物落叶,以消耗尿液中的盐分, so urinate on rocks or bare dirt rather than on the vegetation.

Dishes | 将水收集在一个干净的锅或膨胀罐中,并将其带到距离任何水源200英尺的清洗地点. It allows the soil to act as a filter for your waste water.

Bathing | 总是离水源200英尺远. Rinse any sunscreen, soap, body oils, insect repellent prior to swimming.

处理游戏内脏 鱼类和野生动物的残骸应该远离小路、水源和露营地. 埋葬也许是合适的, burn, 或者把内脏和垃圾一起打包,特别是在发现熊的地方.

Travel & Camping

识别耐用的表面| Durable surfaces are surfaces that are minimally affected by camping and hiking. They include rock outcrops, sand, gravel, trails, dry grasses, snow or water. 它们是很少或没有植被的地方.

使用已建立的营地 Choose a well-established campsite that’s big enough for your group. 好的营地是发现的,不是建造的.

Breaking camp | 让你的营地看起来干净自然

在原始地区分散使用 Little human traffic, few trails, and no established campsites. Please prevent using these areas to keep if feeling untouched.

Protect water sources | 动物需要水,如果你的营地离它们通常的水源太近,它们可能会被吓跑. Camping near water can also lead to accidental contamination by wash water, food scraps, and human waste. 请在离水200英尺的地方扎营.

How to stay found

  • 在步道起点登记或与护林员登记

  • Be a competent navigator. 随身携带一张地图,随时知道自己在哪里

  • Stay with your group

  • Look over your shoulder and take note of obvious landmarks along your route

  • 把你的行程告诉朋友,告诉他如果你不能按时回来该怎么办. 在你的汽车仪表盘上留一份

  • 如果你迷路了,就待在原地. It’s easier to find a stationary target than one that keeps moving

Leave What you find

  • 用平底锅生火-金属油锅

  • 使用土堆火——建在沙子、砾石或有机含量低的土壤的基座上.

  • Dry wash or beach fires

使用枯木和倒木 使用地面上可以用手折断的木棍

Manage your campfire | Make sure your fire is safe and leaves as little impact as possible

  • 千万不要让火无人看管

  • 不要试图烧掉铝箔包装, leftover food, 或者其他稍后必须清除的垃圾

  • 把木头完全烧成灰. 停止火上浇油,给自己一个小时或更多的时间来添加所有未燃烧的木棍末端
