Vacation 2017, Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Glenwood Springs, CO

 Iron Mountain Hot Springs Glenwood Springs, Colorado

Located on the banks of the Colorado River this new facility with it's pools nicely placed on the banks of the river provide a spectacular way to relax and take in the vistas of the surrounding mountains. The hot mineral waters of the springs that feed these pools are a very soothing providing a welcomed res bit for those who come to relax and heal. The staff is very friendly and there is a cafe that serves great food and even libations. We left so relaxed and ready for a good nights sleep at our next stop at Gore Creek, a national forest service campground just 60 miles east of Glenwood Springs very near Vail, CO.

We were pleasantly surprised and fully refreshed making our next stop at Gore Creek a delight with the rushing waters of the creek providing white noise for a great nights sleep. This place is special to for those who love nature as it surrounded by the high peaks of the Rockies with great Vista's everywhere you look.
