Wow! What can we say about this year’s Folk ‘n Bluegrass Festival? The weather was a classic crystal blue skies Pagosa weekend and the crowd was festive and friendly.

Below are some of the video clips I filmed during Saturday and Sunday afternoon featuring Warren Hood & The Goods, Eddie From Ohio, The Dixie Bee-Liners, Crooked Still and Solas. Below the videos is an embedded video series featuring all the video I shot. You can also view this series on my 2011 Pagosa Folk ‘n Bluegrass channel on YouTube.

Well, we were expecting rain today but the weather held up just long enough for us to have a dry 2011 St. Patrick’s Day Parade here in Pagosa Springs. We’re lucky to work at the downtown Jim Smith Realty office where we just step outside our door to watch the parade. “Blink and you miss it,” I always say about the St. Patty’s Parade because it so short.

High Horse Productions just posted their coverage of the parade.  Video below:

We watched them all so you don’t have to. Below is a series of the best videos we have found of the Wolf Creek Ski Area from January – March 2011. Helmut cams are even more prominent this year giving the viewer a sense that they are along for the ride. Bookmark this post for those emergency moments when your stuck at the office or a hot day in July.

Be sure to watch in full screen if you can get away it and check out my blog video viewing tips if your an internet video novice. You can view even more of these videos on my YouTube channel as well.

From Will Hurtgen and Vimeo: This is one of our favorites from this year especially at 1:20 as Will holds the video camera on a pole and films himself in the powder.

“All Things Pagosa” readers know by now that the Upper Piedra area is our favorite part of Pagosa Springs.  And Williams Creek Reservoir is an extra special destination.   I took the picture below two days after Christmas just before my camera battery died.

Farther below are pictures I took on New Year’s Day after several days of heavy snow in the area.  This is quite a difference from the Williams Lake Fall Pictures we published this past October.

See pictures of this incredible area in it’s fall splendor.

I shot this great video during Christmas 2008 during a big snowstorm.  It’s been very popular on my “All Things Pagosa” YouTube channel and we thought we’d share it with here one more time.  My favorite part of the video is minute 1:45 when the little girl reaches for the snow and she’s disappointed because the snow melts in her hands which are warm from the hot springs.   If you feel you can’t get enough, check out the video I prepared of my drive to the office that morning below the Pagosa Hot Springs video.

Cimarrona Campgrounds in Pagosa Springs is a popular spot for hiking, fishing and hunting enthusiasts.  It is located 27 miles northwest of Pagosa Springs and 2.3 miles north of Teal Campground on Forest Road 640 just above Williams Creek Reservoir which is stocked with kokanee salmon and trout.  It features 21 campsites some of which can handle large RV’s.  The campground has water provides trash pickup and vault toilets.

I took these pictures on October 12, 2010 hoping to get the brilliant blue skies that Pagosa is known for but got to the site a little too late in the day and the clouds were already gathering above the mountains.

Pagosa Springs has had a late but remarkable fall colors season this year.  This is a collection of photos I took on October 10 & 12, 2010.  I’d be out much more often but the real estate market picked up for me during this period (that’s why it took so long to get these posted).

Wow. What an incredible day we had this weekend at the Four Corner’s Folk Festival up on Reservoir Hill in Pagosa Springs.  The weather was perfect and the music was awesome.  One day we’d like to camp on the hill with everyone else instead of lugging all the supplies up with three kids, two of whom are in diapers.  Next year, perhaps.

Anyway, below are a few photos I snapped and the one video I shot from the VIP area. Read Full Article →

Nate No Holds Bard, Jordan Davey and Tyler Johnson enjoy an impromptu snowboarding session in Pagosa Springs Town park after the 2010 Pagosa Springs St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
I stumbled upon these guys while walking with my family on the Riverwalk and fortunately had my camera with me.  Unfortunately, I did not have my video camera on me so we have to settle for stop-gap.
