Hello dear readers and thank you for stopping by for a cup of strong brew and chat with me. If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week we will have to keep our visit short. In fact, as I write this my girlfriend and I are driving a few hours out of town to spend a few days in beautiful Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
We’ve only been up her once before, and only for the day, but ever since then we’ve wanted to come back. If you aren’t aware Glenwood boasts that their hot springs pool is the largest in the world. From their website:
For generations, our rich minerals have been soothing and restoring all who swim, soak and play here. The spring that fills the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool still delivers three and a half million gallons of hot water every day, in a rhythm as reliable as the sunrise and the seasons. And winter, spring, summer and fall, Mother Nature’s hospitality and her potent waters are here for our guests, young and old alike. That hasn’t changed since 1888.
I am telling you after you have spent a day swimming in a huge 90-100 degree pool of clean mountain mineral water, no other pool or lake will compare.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that besides soaking in the Hot Springs we’ll be checking out the caves up here, doing a bit of shopping and whatever sight seeing we can squeeze in. Most of all what we will be doing is resting and not worrying about our obligations and responsibilities back at home.
This trip won’t be our only trip out of the city this summer. In a couple of weekends, we’ll be heading up to Winter Park to do some real camping with a bunch of friends. I hope so anyway; it depends on everyone’s work schedule. If only a few people go it isn’t as fun. Camping is a “the more, the merrier” activity.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I wasn’t sure until this moment, but seeing these mountains and knowing that we have an opportunity to live differently for the next three days, I’ve decided this blog will go quiet for the week. I hope you don’t mind, if you do I’m sorry, but I need this. I promise to be back, maybe as soon as Thursday when I am back in town but for sure no later than Saturday when I will send my newsletter out.
We just need a little breaking from looking at screens and letting emails and social media stress us out. I will miss you all, though.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had to go. This is the first time I am posting from my phone and since I have needed my maps app and the camera my battery is running low. Plus, I don’t have any cell signal so by the time I post this I’ll be in the hotel, and it will be the last thing I do before leaving the internet behind.
I hope you all had a good week. I hope your week to come will be good too. Wish me luck on my trip and if you comment, I promise to get back to you as soon as I am back home.
Until next time :)
