We were on a western trip several years ago, and as we wandered home, we turned off I-70 at Hwy 9 in Colorado and went over Hoosier Pass. We stopped for a cup of coffee in Fairplay at the Eagle's Nest Restaurant and motored on....until a few miles later in Hartsel we saw the sign for TAMALES. I had to stop or carry a load of regret forever. Boy, were they good! I just Googled Dorothy's Tamales and found that she has moved her business a short distance, but is still going strong. Her tamales are very popular with folks traveling to and from ski areas locally, and she is open from 7A to 7P.
