Pagosa Springs, Colorado Profile...
City Profile -- "Pagosa Springs is A Paradise for all Seasons. It continues to be a rapidly growing community in a beautiful setting east of Durango and west of Wolf Creek Ski Area. It is the gateway to Colorado's largest wilderness area - the Weminuche Wilderness, with 492,418 acres of stunning scenery. The Anasazi Indian ruins of the Chimney Rock Archaeological Area are 17 miles west of Pagosa Springs, and the fire lookout tower at Chimney Rock offers a panoramic view of the San Juan Mountains. The town derives its name from the Ute Indian name Pagosah which roughly translated means healing or boiling waters. The Utes discovered the healing powers of the hot springs, and Pagosa Springs still welcomes travelers looking to soak in the mineral water. The San Juan River courses through town and offers Kayaking, rafting and fishing."
