We headed out for a week-long jaunt around Southwestern Colorado to revisit some old favorites and spend time in spots we’ve somehow missed over five decades of living in the state.
We made a fairly uninterrupted beeline to our destination of South Fork even though we drove through beautiful mountain scenery worthy of more attention – springtime greens of South Park, 14,000-foot snow-capped peaks, historic mining towns, and rushing rivers.
Bob made friends with a couple of happy bears at the Visitor Center in South Fork.
Arbor House Inn – an exceptional Bed & Breakfast in South Fork, Colorado
Dinner was enjoyed at Ramon’s Mexican Restaurant. Even on a busy Saturday evening the service was excellent and attentive. Our innkeepers recommended the flan for dessert – they knew whereof they spoke. We’ve been flan fans for years and this may have been the best we’ve ever had. Worth the trip all the way from the Denver area.
Relaxation and an amazing evening sky concluded the first day of our trip.
