Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Colorado

Across the continental divide ..

That's not the state motto.

Camping at Rio Blanco, a Forest Service campground (free with National Park Pass; $15 otherwise). Popular with fishermen. On the way in (2.5 miles on a dirt road) we saw a beautiful coyote, still wearing its winter coat.

This was the quietest place I’ve ever camped. Except for the river, you don’t hear anything.

Like Paso Robles, Pagosa Springs (where I’m blogging from) is famous for its underground sulphur springs that heat ground water to an average temperature of 140 degrees F. Haven’t seen any of the “smoking sulphur holes from hell” like the one that showed up in Paso’s city parking lot after the earthquake, though.

OK, time to go find a cup of coffee.
