Springing back

by in America

It’s snowboaring time again and English Hubby and I find oursleves in one of our favorite places in America, the itsy bitsy town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

Time stands still in Pagosa Springs

 

We discovered this hidden gem almost seven years ago on our RV road trip around the States. My two best Aussie friends, S + N we’re road tripping with us at the time, and we took a fateful detour to go white water rafting down the San Juan.

N got a little more than she bargained for as she was flung out of our raft into the frigid waters! Nonetheless, we keep coming back for more.

I found us an apartment for our 5 night stay. Our little perfect hideaway with everything we need, even a slow cooker.

I have happy visions of us waking up fresh, meditating in the morning, packing the slow cooker with delicious organic ingredients before we head for the mountains.

Other than that, the plan is  pretty simple: snowboard, spa, read, eat and sleep.

Perfect for curling up and reading for hours

Good night…
