I picked up Frank, Lue, and Danny at 1:30 am and we went to the airport. We flew from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Albuquerque. From Albuquerque, where we rented a car (Ford Escape), we drove through a lot of New Mexico into Southwestern Colorado to our resort in Pagosa Springs. Our place is at Wyndham Pagosa and it is nice. We have a king size bedroom and a murphy bed in the living room which works out well.

We went over to Treasure Falls. It was a long climb to the top. Next, we drove up to the top of Wolf Creek Pass where the summit has an elevation of about 11,000 feet. There is a marker denoting the continental divide. Water on one side ends up in the Colorado River and eventually the Gulf of California. Water on the other side of the bronze marker ends up in the Rio Grande and the Gulf of Mexico. "Wolf Creek Pass" is a song named after this mountain. Next, we went into the town of Pagosa Springs and ate at Mountain Pizza, a place where you build your own pizza on a computer screen. After we ate, we went along the river walk. There many people were tubing and swimming in the San Juan River while many more were bathing in one of the many bath houses in the mineral waters that come up from the deepest geothermal hot springs in the world. This "Mother Spring" feeds the pools hosted by three local hot spring soaking locations within town. The water from the "Mother" Spring is approximately 144°F.
