Platoro--watch out for the bears

This small village of old mining shacks and the Lodge of Platoro is a great place to discover in Southern Colorado. The lake is full of trout and the area has many camping spots.
There are bears that look for an easy dinner. So pack up your stuff, and don't wear clothes to bed that have food smell on it, if you are sleeping in a tent.
Plan on eating one meal in the lodge as the atmosphere there takes you back to the 30's, with knotty pine and old antiques hanging on the wall, etc.
