It's not always your house or car…sometimes spring cleaning can be most beneficial for your brain. In our small town, restaurants take turns shutting down to go play…free of worries or stress. Seasonal mountain employees find ways to escape from winter work to play before the summer jobs begin. One of our favorites aspects of living here in the mighty San Juans is that we can escape in an afternoon. We can take a day and clear the cobwebs at the top of Pagosa Peak or wandering in the Wemenuche Wilderness. Sometimes a cold one and smooth concrete is all it takes….this backyard playground is one of the many reasons why we live in Pagosa. So while we might be jetting off to far off places for some spring cleaning of our gray matter, we will also be sneaking out to our backyard at every chance we get. Spring is here, time to clean up the clutter and be free!!! Enjoy this time of year as it is as unique as you are! Have fun.
