Hippie Dips

The next morning the three of us continued driving through the mountains until we got to Glenwood Springs, where Doc Holiday was shot and killed (now the site of an outdoor gear shop), also the source of some enormous hot springs.
We had heard about an alternative to the hot springs resort (lovely in itself, but a bit pricey), and some locals told us how to get to the Hippie Dips. This is where the hot springs overflows into the very cold Colorado River.

We roasted in our rock pools of near boiling water and waved to the whitewater rafters when they cruised past.

And of course, there is no better way to end the weekend than with a bottle of wine, good company, and some filet mignon on the grill.
