Riff Raff Brewing Company (Pagosa Springs, CO)

burgerplacecoloradomenuOn our last full day in Colorado (let’s not pretend that waking up at 6 a.m. to get on the road back to Texas counts as any time spent in the state), we finally ventured into downtown Pagosa Springs. That’s where we discovered the downtown sulphur scent from the hot springs and that you really wouldn’t want to hang out in certain spots (again, no threat of crime…just that smell).

Upwind of that area a bit was Riff Raff Brewing Company.

DSP Pizzeria (Pagosa Springs, CO)

The surrounding area provided some pretty cool views. This one required a 100-yard walk to get to from the parking lot. My kind of hike!

When we went to the Cafe Colorado on our first night in Pagosa Springs, I grabbed their local visitors’ guide and rifled through it to check for other restaurants we might want to check out during our stay. One option, offering $2 margaritas in addition to pizzas…was out of business. The $2 margaritas may not have been the best idea.

DSP Pizzeria, however, was still around and my parents mentioned that it was the place they’d take us if we were looking for a pizza.

We also hiked to some of the local waterfalls for pics.

Early in September, the family and I went to Pagosa Springs to visit my folks and explore an area that features actual elevation changes, something I’ve yet to find in Texas (not that I’m complaining, it makes for much safer driving).

My parents took us to their favorite place, a little diner-type deal near their house and away from downtown (there was a folk festival of some sort taking place that weekend), so despite its bustling, it wasn’t too jam-packed.
