Where Is It?

Hi Friends~Today's question is where were these photos taken? You will probably recognize the last one, because it is a national park/treasure. Ever since hubby and I moved here, I have been wanting to tour this area but just never got there. The year we went to New Mexico for a week, we planned to drive through this area but due to predictions of snow and not having our all-wheel vehicle, we bypassed it. The first two photos are of Durango, Co. Doesn't it look so beautiful? I can't wait to spend a day there. I

The next two are of Pagossa Springs, which is where we will be staying. Another incredibly beautiful spot and one that I think we will go back to on a regular basis. This trip will be short, just scouting out the area and getting a feel for this part of our state. I am looking forward to trying out their hot springs; I think it will help hubby's neck.  We've got a list of places to go and restaurants to dine at plus a few quilt stores thrown in.  That is always a must as well as golf courses.  Hubby may play golf one morning but he thinks we will be too busy. 

You probably all recognized Mesa Verde Cliff Dwellings; this is an park I've wanted to visit since I was in college. Took me long enough didn't it.
I will be in touch here this week, prior to our departure.  We will take our camera and laptop too, so I'll be checking in when we go.  It will be interesting to see what Hunter's reaction will be as we get ready to pack, later in the week, will he know something is up or not?  Hunter will be at his cousins house, Lilly's, having lots of fun and not missing us at all-at least I hope he doesn't miss us, o.k. maybe just a little.  It is such a blessing to know he'll be with family and not at the kennel, even though they've always loved our dogs.  Now I've got to come up with something to write about tomorrow while my mind is on our getaway.  I hope you have a delightful day today.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. What fun you are going to have- It will be great to see some pictures as you go. I'm betting Hunter will sense "somethings up" as you start to pack- Dogs are pretty smart- xo Diana

  2. What beautiful pictures....that first one is too gorgeous for words! Enjoy your trip, and take lots of pics! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  3. Mesa Verde is awesome! It is amazing to think of a time when this village was an actual thriving community. You have lots of fun places to visit in your state!!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

    PS - Hunter will miss you but Lilly will keep his mind off it : )

  4. Made many trips to Durango and Pagosa!

  5. What beautiful pictures! This looks like an awesome time!! Glad you are having fun.

  6. While my heart is at the beach, I have to admit that I do have a desire to return to the mountains. And the pictures you shared have certainly fueled that desire. ;-)

  7. Bet HUnter wishes he could go. But I know he will love to be with Lilly.

  8. Love all those places Noreen... when we used to travel each summer to visit my grandparents in New Mexico, we visited each one of those often... Hope you enjoy your trip!... thanks for stopping by, always love it when you do... xoxo Julie Marie

  9. Looks awesome, I loves exploring!!
    Woofs to Hunter and tail wags to the humans,

  10. Looks wonderful. I would love to go and that's not likely so please take lots of photos for those of us who can't make it. Joan
