After three days of skiing, last night was our last in Pagosa. It was wonderful.
We ate hamburgers and sweet potato fries. (I had a lovely plate full of sweet potato fries. Carbs make me happy :))
Then we went to “soak” in the hot springs. Pagosa means “healing waters” and is known for having natural hot springs. They cool off the mineral-filled, God-sent water a little then pump into private hot tubs. Ahhhh, that was EXACTLY what everyone needed. Our parched Colorado skin and sore skiing muscles relaxed and rejuvenated under the flow of mineral water while our minds melted into the serene atmosphere. But seriously, HANNAH LOVES SULFUROUS WATER.
It was a perfect way to end the first part of this Colorado vacation (now on to Boulder)! I slept well that night and woke up with gleaming skin and ready-to-go muscles. God I love this place.
Skiing was fantabulous. The snow was perf’ and I wasn’t nearly as hesitant on this trip as I have been before. (Can I still say that I did a black diamond if I did 3/4 of it sideways? Yes?) I even did a black diamond!
This state is a post card. I cannot wait to see what the future holds here.
