For many people, going out to cut down a Christmas Tree is a valued family tradition passed down from generation to generation. It is a great way to bond as a family in our beautiful National Forests. Pagosa Springs has an abundance of tree-cutting areas and opportunity, so you are sure to find the perfect tree for you and your family! The Forest Service provides some excellent guides for identifying trees and cutting them:
The San Juan National Forest offers permits (priced at $8) to go out and find the perfect tree for your family! Not only will you get a Christmas Tree for the year, but you are also contributing to the conservation of our forests, and fire mitigation as well! If you are unsure where to find a tree, you can contact the Forest Service here and they will answer any questions you may have! *Permits will go on sale November 12, 2020.

With monsoon season now upon us, the San Juan National Forest’s fire danger level has finally dipped down to moderate level. This means you can now have a campfire on your next outdoor adventure. Campfires are a great way to spend a warm summer night in Pagosa Springs, and in order to continue enjoying them, we’ve put together some general guidelines to follow:
Clear 3 feet of ground down to dirt surrounding your campfire.
Bring a shovel and water with you, just in case.
Keep campfires small; they are much easier to control & put out.
Never leave a fire unattended.
Insure your campfire is completely out before leaving. If the coals are too hot for you to touch, you shouldn’t leave!

Following these easy guidelines helps to keep our forests open and healthy!

This is a dear friend of mine named Ralph and I at the top of Pagosa Peak. I like to think of him as my own personal Sherpa. If you’re new to the area, get out there and explore!!! Nothing is more exhilarating than conquering a mountain, especially for an ex-city boy~ (even if it is only 12,600′ elevation)
