Pagosa Springs is most known as a tourist draw, with a really elaborate hot springs (hence the name).   Yesterday we enjoyed the Springs with its 17 pools, all different temperatures (from 85 to 111 degrees).  Today, we drove to the mountains but were about 2 weeks to early for colors.  But it was a great drive, and we ended at Treasure Falls.
