Just East of the summit of Wolf Creek Pass, near Pagosa Springs, CO, you will find Big Meadows Recreation Area and campground. From what I understand, the campground has been closed for the past few years while the pine beetle devastation was removed. It reopened this past Fall. The entire campground has been rebuilt from the ground up, so to speak. All new sites, many with decks and rails. No hookups, but who needs them with the scenery available.
We met up with some good friends from Arizona that were returning from an Escapee event in Indiana. Knew we would cross paths somewhere, and Big Meadows filled the bill. As you can see, the sites are well spaced, and there weren’t many folks there the middle of the week.
We spent two days catching up on each others travels and such.
The lake was a hotspot for the local fishermen, and ladies. Some fishing, and some catching.
We took a walk around the lake one morning. About three miles. Lots of running water.
Some of us got a little warmer than others. This is the dog that doesn’t like water.
And, of course what enters the lake this time of year has to exit the lake. A pretty bridge over the spillway, which was rushing with whitewater.
A great time with great friends.
Onward and upward…….jc
