Meet Me In The Middle
“I live in the Midwest, and my parents and sister live in Arizona. So we took a look at the map of Club Wyndham resorts to see where we could meet in the middle for a family reunion a few years ago, and Pagosa Springs, Colorado, was a perfect location. There was a total of seven in thegroup, and we booked a ‘house’ in the Eagle’s Loft section. This option fit our mixed group of adults and teens perfectly, with two bedrooms and a loft with two queen beds. We all drove to Colorado, so we brought food to stock the kitchen, and bicycles to ride around the resort area. The house had its own driveway — perfect for our three cars — and was right on a lake.
The weather that June was excellent for outdoor activities, and we sure packed them in. The San Juan River runs right through the town, and there are wonderful walking paths with shops and restaurants. The hot springs area is right next to the river, and there is a fabulous resort with many different pools of the hot spring water — you can select the pool by temperature!
We rode bicycles around town, bought some food at a local shop, and had a peaceful lunch at a park along the river. We stopped for ice cream along the way back. It was fun to watch all the people tubing down the river. We went on a horseback ride into the mountains, and took a 4x4 ride out to Silver Falls. We went on a river raft trip down the San Juan, where part of it actually went into New Mexico.
There are many places out of town to see. We drove out to Treasure Falls and Wolf Creek Pass. There was still some snow on the ground at the pass, and the kids had a snowball fight. We took a day trip to Mesa Verde National Park and learned a lot about the people that lived there. We also drove the ‘Million Dollar Highway’ from Durango to Silverton and Ouray. It was spectacular!
The most memorable thing was that my mom and I took a special hot air balloon trip, and we were the only passengers in the small basket with the pilot.
The kids have grown up since then, so now I am looking forward to planning a girl’s trip for me and my sisters in the future. There are so many Club Wyndham locations to choose from, and I can’t wait to make new memories.”
