Vallecito Lake

Beautiful breathtaking views! It is located 20 miles north-east of Durango Colorado.

In 2002 over 70,000 acres were burned near the city of Durango. Over 4,000 firefighters helped. Fourteen 18 feet tall carvings were made to help tourism to Vallecito Lake.

We stayed at Lone Wolf Cabins. A great place to enjoy a slower pace of life and get some much needed R&R!! So amazing!!

Big Spring Cabins, Van Buren, Mo.

Wow!  No TV or Internet.

 So quiet,  that we could hear the leaves fall on the ground.

The  current river was clear.

Big Spring Cabins were built in the 1930’s.  A fire place is inside, and a fire pit is outside.

We grilled dinner outside, and roasted marshmallows inside.

They have no central heat.  So glad we brought an electric heater! 🙂

Sad to say that, the cabins will be closed from 2015-2018.   For renovation safety codes.

The current river is feed by underground springs. The water is clear, and continually moving.  Most people canoe or raft down the river.
