Spring Equinox Pop-Up
Our daughters are fierce, loyal, angels of this Earth. They remind us what it means to love unconditionally. Daughters have an essence about them and no matter how feisty they can be, you always see their sweet soul shine through on the gloomiest of days. You often wonder what they will be when they grow up and what dreams they will come up with (though you wish time would slow down). They push you to be the best version of yourself and wonder why you are sad some days. They are not ashamed to call you out on your emotions and will make you laugh on what seem the darkest of days. They do not pretend to be anyone besides themselves, and occasionally Minnie Mouse.
Dogs & Daughters make the ultimate partners in adventure and can teach you a thing or two about yourself.
Soaking in the San Juan River Springs at 110°
Pagosa Springs, Colorado, is dubbed as home of the World's Deepest Geothermal Hot Spring. This quaint town sits near the southern point of the state and makes for a wonderful therapeutic escape. Visit The Springs Resort & Spa for access to twenty-four 100% mineral-water hot springs, including an all natural heated swimming pool. The springs overlook the San Juan River, and each pool varies in temperature throughout the day. Check out a map of all the hot springs here.
Hiking the verticals leading up to Alberta Peak
Enjoy The Most Snow in Colorado* and ride Wolf Creek Ski Area! There is no shortage of tree lines to explore, and you could spend a full day traversing new territory. The further back you go, the more runs you will find. Traverse Knife Ridge for a bonus element of scaring yourself into new confidence that can only come from riding unruly Double Blacks.

Take a drive down Piedra Rd. and hit the jackpot of options to explore. From riverside snowshoe trails to frozen lakes & waterfalls, the views from the drive alone will have you ooohing and aaahing with windows down. The Piedra River Trail is a beautiful trek in the snow with amazing alpine views along the way.
A Moonlit Walk for Dessert
Pagosa Springs is a great place to take a mini-vacation with your sweetie or the whole family. Natural Grocers is heaven to scoop up healthy snacks, especially the frozen chocolate covered bananas, and local brew. There is also a Wal-Mart a few miles outside of downtown with a wonderful selection of fresh veggies & meats. You don't want to miss out on the homemade Taquitos Appetizer from Riff Raff on the Rio, a local brewery that indulges classic record nights. And for the love of all that is holy, do not leave your vacation without a trip to the Malt Shoppe for a banana split~ it will rock your world.
