To Pagosa Springs

Aloha Everyone,

U.S. Route 160 is a 1,465 mile long east-west US highway, crossing the mid-western section of the United States from Missouri to Arizona. We started our drive on US Route 160 from Alamosa.  

Our lunch stop was at a small town called Del Norte with a population of less than 2,000. We walked into Boogie's Restaurant where everyone seem to know everyone else. J.J.'s mushroom Swiss burger and my vegetarian burger wrapped in lettuce were very good.

At an overlook in the Rio Grande National Forest, we stopped so J.J. can take a nap and for me to go on a short trail.

Floyd, a law enforcement officer and his wife Sally, a high school English teacher with their 2 children were on a Sunday road trip. When Floyd indicated his interest in seeing the interior of Honu, I volunteered to wake J.J. up. It was very enjoyable visiting with such a wonderful family and highly intelligent children.

Tonight we are staying just outside the city of Pagosa Springs at Happy Camper RV Park.
