After an extensive breakfast in Pagosa Springs we explored the city and the eponymous Hot Springs, which not too far back were even added to the Guinness book of records. Then we took a beautiful hike within the Wolf Creek Ski Area along the Continental Divide Trail, up to 11.500 feet near Alberta Peak. The air was getting thin up there and the hike a little cumbersome, but arrived at the top we were compensated for all. The vista was simply breathtaking - great! Back to the car we made it quite fast then.
On the top of the mountains temperatures were quite pleasant, but arrived in Pagosa again the mugginess was almost unbearable. It was only a question of time when the redemptive rain shower would come...
And it came, right when we wanted to take a short shopping tour. The vacation village also had an indoor pool, so we used the afternoon for some swimming. We had a lot of fun there, and even some water was 'swallowed'.
We finished that evening in a cozy American restaurant (Aspen Moose) with tasty food and some good wine.
