Even though we have been social-distancing all summer, somehow Mark managed to get sick. So we went into lockdown mode for the rest of our stay at Lake Vallecito Resort. He was still very tired when we left, but at least he was fever-free. He said he felt good enough to make the hour-long drive to our next stop in Pagosa Springs. Or perhaps he thought that he might get sick again if he had to watch Denisa drive the motor home down the narrow little road the first 13 miles of the trip. Anyway, he made the drive to Happy Camper RV Park outside of Pagosa Springs, and then spent the rest of the day in bed. We are still on lockdown!
Denisa has been sleeping on the couch and trying to stay as far away as a 35-foot motor home will allow. But she feels like a ticking time bomb, just waiting to start that awful fever. We are taking temperatures throughout the day, but there is no sign of fever from either of us for now. But we are on lockdown while we wait for Mark to recover more fully. We did get some drive-by pictures of the town of Pagosa Springs, which includes the Mother Spring in downtown.
Sulfur-laden hot water is coming out of the ground under the Mother Spring, and many other holes around Pagosa Springs. The yellow sulfur has left its rotten-egg smell and color in this most elite part of town. We could drive by to see the spa guests enjoying the hot water baths. Like other facilities this summer, we assume the number of guests is strictly controlled.
