Durango Dan arranged a weekend at a fancy vacation home on the San Juan River for us to meet up with the McGrundallnesses for a visit. We enjoyed a hike to Chimney Rock formation, an exploration of Treasure Falls and a trip to the Pagosa Springs Hot Springs in addition to lots of playing with the kiddos, fancy homemade potions courtesy of Ethan and terrific meals cooked by all involved!
On our tour of Chimney Rock Ethan volunteered to grind corn using the tools that the Native Americans who lived in this area would have used.
