Sunday we drove from Taos to 10 miles south of Pagosa Springs. Our destination is a small place between the Blanco River and a few small mountains. Was called Acres Green but they are changing the name to Pagosa Springs RV. We hope it will be cooler here as Colorado is having a heat wave and temps get up into the 90s mid day. We backed into our spot #5 and have a lovely big blue spruce outside our rear window and behind that is a tall mountain. Green grass everywhere that is mowed and weed free, the girls love rolling out here. After a good 2 hour nap for us all we went out and sat to enjoy the evening breeze and views and have a cocktail. We even had a view of a perfect rainbow over the mountains to the northeast of us. They sure need the rain in this state as there are several big fires burning. Hopefully our path will take us by all this and into cooler, wetter climes.
Tuesday we drove into Pagosa Springs for a few groceries, mail 2 letters, get diesel, and eat lunch. What a great place we discovered just on the west side of town on Hwy 160. It is Nello’s Bistro and they make the best BLT club sandwich you ever ate. They use thick sliced Applewood bacon, lots of fresh tomatoes, avocado and green leaf lettuce on fresh baked whole wheat toast. Served with fresh strawberries and pineapple or french fries, Yum! They are in the corner of the shopping center and have a nice outdoor patio with lots of pretty flowers. They are very near the Pagosa Springs Resort area so I imagine they have lots of people in and out. Be sure to look them up if you come this way.
