I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!

  1. I suppose it’s a safety concern but it’s really aggravating that the parade doesn’t go by bars at the east end.

    1. Yes, and the restaurants too. In addition to liability, I would imagine CDOT has a say, too. There’s probably a lot of checks & balances. We’ll see…. Maybe the new route will be just as good of an experience.
