We travelled to Pagosa Springs for Mary Lou to attend an art class. We all stayed at Winslow on the Shire just outside of town. It’s an amazing facility. It has 11 bedrooms on 4 floors. It’s furnished in sort of Victorian funky, but it’s quite nice.
Here’s the view from the kitchen window with the San Juan mountains in the distance.
We spent the first day in Pagosa Springs, including the balloon festival. (see previous post). On Monday morning, the artists got to work.
They painted in the mornings and we had afternoons free to venture out. Pagosa Springs is a beautiful place. The river flows right through town.
When we were there, the aspens were justing starting to show their fall colors.
During class I took slipped out to see Chimney Rock National Monument, which is nearby.
Here’s some of Mary Lou’s finished work from the class.
It was a great week. We all had a good time. We visited Carlsbad Caverns on the way home and it was great, but I didn’t take photos – just enjoyed.
That’s all for now. We have another trip planned, so stay tuned.
