Colorado is indeed a beautiful, beautiful place, and Pagosa Springs, at its high altitude, is one of the nicest spots. The hot springs are very nice.

But the quote from Mary Lou is a bit of an overstatement.

From looking at City Data's graph, average temps in Pagosa Springs are on the low end of the USA's average. April temps can vary from 25 to 60.

Anyone moving from Florida might want to think about the adjustment to the higher altitude. I think it's around 7000 feet. They do get snow, often in spring.
I dont think Pagosa is bad at all and I was there a couple of days ago. The sun shinning and I didnt even need a coat. Southern Colorado doesnt get the wind and cold like up north. It may be cold to someone from Florida though but I can tell you I much rather live in the Four Corners than in Florida any day.

I'm not here to talk about preferences for or against Florida.
Nowhere have I said Pagosa is "bad," but right now the temps are in the 30's and there is a chance of snow. (We have the same temps here today, but no snow is expected.)
I am trying to address, without hyperbole, someone moving *from* Florida to a mountain community, who just recently bought a coat.
Both my brothers graduated from Ft Lewis and I often visited them at various times of year. We used to sometimes spend the night in Pagosa. Obviously it's in the sunbelt, in July it could get downright hot, but it's not like it's southern Florida, especially between late November and March.

In general, the temperatures in Pagosa Springs are the lowest in the Four Corners. Nice in the summer, maybe in the winter not so nice.
The hot springs are a Huge plus, except for the odor.
