Blanco River Road

0

This road heads east from US 84 south of Pagosa Springs a short distance through nice mixed-conifer forest and a little mid-elevation riparian habitat to a forest service campground. There is some aspen and Gambel oak mixed in. Look for Western Tanagers and Warbling Vireos. With great luck, you may see a weasel chase a vole through the campground.
