Colorado Living - Durango and Pagosa Springs

Last week I shared with you all of the Colorado breweries we visited. A few of them I mentioned were part of a road trip to Durango and Pagosa Springs. Breweries aside, Durango and Pagosa Springs were two places on my list to visit before we left Colorado. 

Durango and Pagosa Springs are two neighboring towns about 30 minutes apart located in the southwest corner of Colorado. Before moving to Colorado I had heard that Durango and Pagosa Springs were beautiful and I had to see for myself. Pagosa Springs is located on a hot spring which was pretty cool in itself. 

We took off for the 7 hour drive and planned on making a long camping weekend out of the trip, also planning on stopping at as many breweries as we could. 

Road Trip

When we arrived in Durango, we set up camp. We camped on a river. 

We went to the breweries of course and explored Durango. It was a pretty cool town. 

We headed back to camp.

And then it rained.

After we eventually left Durango, we stopped to explore Pagosa Springs on the way back. 

Pagosa Springs is situated on a natural hot spring. Hot springs run into the river. The water shooting out of the pipe was hot!

On our way back to Denver we crossed the Great Divide.
