This year we decided to take an impromptu family vacation to Durango and Pagosa Springs that tagged along with 4th of July weekend we planned to spend in Buena Vista. Some of the highlights from the trip include seeing family in Buena Vista, the the Durango-Silverton train ride, various hikes, and swimming in the mineral pool.

On our way to Pagosa, we stopped for a guided tour of Chimney Rock National Monument where we enjoyed some hiking to waterfalls and scenic drives. In Pagosa, we stayed at the bakery, which was a great place to eat especially after smelling the delicious baked goods all night. On Friday we spent a couple hours at a hot springs pool, and Ivan loved the water.

The Coates family walked in the Buena Vista parade.
