Pagosa Springs

Monday July 27, 1992

We sleep in and have a lazy morning. About 11 a.m. we head out to see our Fairfield resort and then on to Pagosa Springs. It's a quaint little town. It's main claim to fame is the mineral springs. The Indians called it healing waters. I think we will go into the waters one day this week. It can't hurt. It may help my arthritis.

We have a nice lunch in the Rolling Pin Bakery. There is a lovely river flowing through town. It clouds up and rains late in the afternoon for 15 minutes. We have a lovely dinner at the Greenhouse Restaurant near here. What a view!

Back at the condo we watch TV and I go to bed about 9:45-10 p.m.

Pagosa Springs is a very small town of approximately 1600 residents and is located in southern Colorado, surrounded by 3 million acres of national forest, and with beautiful views of the San Juan Mountains. It sits at an altitude of 7000 feet so they get plenty of snow in the winter, but surprisingly also get 300 days of sunshine. Ric and I never did try the "healing waters" but used Pagosa Springs as our home base to explore the area.
