Hovering at 24 degrees around 5:30 this morning in Pagosa Springs, Colorado (Elevation 7,027). We camped last night within sight of the Continental Divide at the Pagosa Riverside (KOA) Campground on the San Juan River a mile from downtown. (See reviews for all area RV campgrounds by clicking here.)
This RV campground officially closes on Nov. 15. We paid $20 for a site with electricity … both water and dump were frozen in the winter storm that passed through last week. Manager Sandy Rollings said that it got down to “9-degrees.”
Rollings lives fulltime in her blue/white Winnebago motorhome and has this incredibly friendly huge dog named Kodiak.
Turning south into New Mexico today. Looking for natural hot springs.
As a matter of fact, Tom, we are sitting in the small RV campground at Ojo Caliente Springs … arrived only minutes ago. We plan to stay two nights. Only $20/night for electricity (and water, but it’s heavily treated and not worth drinking). Heading for the mineral pools soon.
It’s probably too late by now, but I liked Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa. (http://ojocalientesprings.com/index.php)
