Overall Rating

Pagosa Springs was such a cool little river town, we didn't want to ever leave. So when it took us forever to do so, we opted for this little spot along the highway to Durango. I mean, it's named for the entire population of peoples who once lived in this area, it's got to be a real gem, no?

There are a couple of "loops", and we more or less went all the way to the back. A jolly man on a golf cart arrived a few moments later.

"Can I help you?"

"Just wanted to camp for the night, and maybe buy a little wood."

"How much wood, I'll go and get it and come back."

Then I noticed the place was stocked to the gills with a several month old pondo the forest service had cut down, no doubt in search of some killer beetles or something.

"Nevermind the wood, actually." He saw me eyeing the pile of free-for-the-taking fire-in-waiting.

"Well, you can use that," he seemed discouraged, "but I wouldn't touch it. This here is rattler country." He was really quite the nice fellow, but I assured him I was willing to risk my life for the low price of a couple of bundles of wood. "And the lady who left here yesterday had food out at night, and bears came down to visit her."

It was an exhilarating night, though no rattlers or bears ever showed up, unfortunately.

I've never pooped in such a clean vault toilet, though. Making memories.
