Happy Friday! Today for our Friday Favorites edition we want to focus on some of our favorite Colorado towns to adventure in and through during these cooler autumn months.
GLENWOOD SPRINGS – There are many lovely things about Glenwood Spring’s but the newest hot spot is the Iron Mountain Hot Springs. It offers 16 soaking pools and a freshwater family pool with a jetted spa. The Iron Mountain Springs are located alongside the Colorado River with Rocky Mountain views that soothe and inspire. What a great time to take a dip these beautiful hot springs with the cool crisp air around you while you soak in the warm bath temp waters.
OURAY – The Switzerland of America! The first time I visited Colorado I begged my parents to move to this quaint, picturesque town because it was borderline enchanting. As an adult I still feel the same way. Not only is Ouray visually captivating but has so much adventure in such a tiny space. Here’s a few things you can do this fall/winter season.
- Jeep Tours
- Ice Climing
- Ice Skating
- Soak in the hot springs (currently under renovation)
- Cross Country Ski
- Visit a ghost town
- Box Canyon Falls
- Hot air ballooning
- and more!
Are you as mesmerized by this little Colorado hotspot?
INDEPENDENCE PASS– Make plans quickly to drive over the nationally known Independence Pass because it usually closes due to weather November 1st. The Pass is part of Colorado State Highway 82 and passes over the Continental Divide between Leadville and Aspen. In addition to being a scenic byway, Independence Pass is a favorite recreation location during the summer months, for those visitors willing to travel just east of Aspen. This scenic mountain pass is the highest paved pass in Colorado!
Make sure to share with us some of your favorite Colorado cool weather adventures so we can add them to our list of great places to see!
