Piedra Road is a beautiful drive in Pagosa Springs from HWY 160 all the way up to Williams Creek Reservoir.   Below are pictures I took on New Years Day 2001 after a heavy snowfall.  Enjoy the pictures and be sure to watch the videos as well including our latest “Driving Pagosa Springs” video showing the massive amounts of snow up near the lake.  More “All Things Pagosa” snow-related stories.

Pagosa Springs Relay For Life — 2010 Pagosa Springs, Colorado St. Patrick’s Day Parade Photo

We all enjoyed a gorgeous day in Pagosa Springs today for the 2010 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The temperature rose to the high 50’s with crystal blue skies and a festive atmosphere.

My pictures are never too impressive with this parade because of the position of the sun in the late afternoon.

I started the “Driving Pagosa Springs” video series one after hearing time and time again from Pagosa property buyers about what an area looks like.  And I was pretty sure that Google wasn’t going to bring their Street View team to our little town anytime soon.

I’ve had mostly favorable reaction to the series — mostly from Pagosa diaspora.  They comment about how much they miss Pagosa and watching the videos help feel like they are home again.

I got the idea based on the popularity of our Pagosa Springs web cams.  Believe it or not, I regularly get calls telling us that a particular camera is not working properly (mostly in the winter when the snow weighs down the camera and makes a repair difficult) and the caller needs it up right away so they can get through their day in whatever office cubicle they want to momentarily escape from.

Affordable Skiing: Wolf Creek

Jonathan Bell skis through heavy snow at Wolf Creek Ski Resort near Wolf Creek Pass, Colo.

I have been writing the travel writers at The New York Times for two years asking why they never write about Pagosa Springs and the Wolf Creek Ski Area. After all, our ski area consistently gets the most snow in Colorado.

Well today I got my wish. Click here to view the article they will run tomorrow’s Ski Guide 2010.
