After lunch we headed back west and at the summit of Wolf Creek Pass, we took a road to Lobo Overlook which sits astride the Continental Divide at 11,200 and provides an expansive view of the spine of our continent. Since it had snowed the week before, we were able to enjoy a bit of those snow capped peaks. It was also bright, sunny and windy as you can see in the photo of Marilyn, Terry, and Johnny. Also those smiles indicate that we were having a great time enjoying the scenery and the time with these two people who love their home area.
Speaking of their home--which is beautiful and very comfortable--we returned to Pagosa Springs to see the hot springs--I didn't know there were hot springs but believe me these are big deals. Terry and Johnny have annual memberships and go down once a week for early morning soaks followed by breakfast in a nearby cafe. Apparently these are very relaxing. The different pools are managed to different temperatures ranging from 83-114 F. The hearty can also dip into the San Juan River and experience 40 F. The calming influence may be due to the fact that the water contains 2.9 (mg/L) of lithium!
