I recently had the opprotunity to visit the Pagosa area after being gone for several years. The small town charm is gone and the tourist hungery shops and buisnesses are everywhere. I was lucky enough to visit a few of the places that have been there for many years and was happy to find their owners just as great as I remember them. If any of you have the chance to go get the best haircut in town please ignore the over priced salons and go set down in Mullins Barbor Shop. Dave was the First person to cut my hair and I hope will cut it again every time I can return. Not only does he do a fabulas job but he makes you right at home while he does it. I truly think that it is the places like Mullins and the people like Dave that make the heart of a town. Pagosa as a hole is an over advertised tourist trap and while that is what keeps several people in buisness it is also what makes me miss the time when you said hello to people in the store and asked about family. Most of the places that I walked into were rude, not overly clean and didn't care whether I made a purchase. I encourage people that go to Pagosa to visit the oldest places in town and ignore the others that don't seem to care about anything but your money. Mullins, Goodmans, The down town Grocery and places that you can look at and tell the locals frequent. No one has to put up with rude money hungry buisnesses, and just because you might save gas by staying in Fairfield doesn't mean that you get the best deal or treatment.
