From the Back Cover
There is not a more serendipitous surrounding to soak in than the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Touring Colorado Hot Springs provides detailed descriptions, easy-to-read maps, and firsthand information for 32 of the best hot springs in the state. Descriptions are spiced with historical information and hot springs trivia that gives insight into the area's past. This entertaining and informative new edition will lead you to world-class family resorts and lesser known hidden springs in Colorado. It includes fully updated and revised text, new photos, and GPS coordinates of all the hot springs.
Since Carl Wambach’s first edition was published in 1999, most of the developed hot springs have changed their names, upgraded their facilities and added numerous structures and amenities. Renovations vary from ongoing maintenance to multi-million-dollar overhauls, and the current status of each hot spring is detailed in the second edition of the book. A common theme is the addition of spa and massage facilities, lodging and a move toward green initiatives.
About the Author
Susan Joy Paul has hiked, climbed, snowshoed, rappelled, and—at times when the winds above 14,000 feet were screaming—crawled across the state of Colorado,reaching the summits of more than 500 mountain peaks along the way. All that adventure takes a toll on the mind, body, and spirit, and in Touring Colorado Hot Springs, Susan takes a break to relax and share the secrets of the ultimate refresher, rejuvenator, and revitalizer to counterpoint the extreme outdoor activities enjoyed by her, other locals, and visitors to the state.
