Pagosa Springs Area - Southwest Colorado

Pagosa Springs was named by the Utes who called the hot springs "Pagosah," or "healing waters." This little town, surrounded on three sides by the San Juan National Forest, is a good place to get away from it all. Explore the mystery of the only mountain home of the Anasazi at nearby Chimney Rock Ruins where these ancient farmers lived some 1,000 years ago. The twin pinnacles were once a scared shrine to the "Ancient Ones". Later, the unusual formations were a landmark for prospectors, missionaries and conquistadors who settled this rugged country. While clambering among the ruins, keep an eye out for the endangered peregrine falcon which nests here. Enjoy the town's hot springs, considered to be the hottest in the world. Windsurf, water-ski and sail on Navajo Lake, which extends southward 35 miles into New Mexico.
