caffeine_induced78 Says: I can deal with the rustic log motif. It was seeing the plastic teepees in Arizona that made me laugh out loud. It all started out with the book called "the Virginian." Hence the romanticized West was born. If you ever stay in a motel room with cable during the first stages...
Is it funny to place different and often conflicting street signs onto the side of your building? I'm still trying to figure that out. It was slightly amusing when I sat in the parking lot thinking "What the hell should I do?" I'm looking at one sign telling me to go 20 mph and another telling me to stop. Someday a drunk bastard is going to mistake the restaurant for a road and plow through the walls.
Watch the newspapers.
It's fairly laid back here and the food is some of that homestyle cooking. It's good food with all of the major food groups just like Mom would have planned.
Favorite Dish: I had to have the Chicken fried steak of course. It called me from the menu.

caffeine_induced78 Says: This is a bar - plain and simple. The place does not try to take on any kind of character except for what it was intended to be when it was founded in 1885. When you go to a bar like this you get that "Cheers" kind of feeling. People have been drinking here for over a 100...
Rember that were you are driving on the mountians passes and if they are snowy, that ever though you may have the biggest baddest highest big lifted 4 wheel dirve vechile that you still have no better control of stopping that anyone else. Drive slow and controled because if you get off the trail in that area of the world its a long way to help.
Have fun just be smart

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: When you are hiking in the mountians you need to pack lite. If you are a flat lader ok not from CO or UT then when you are packing lite you will increase the speed and distance that you can travel due to the lack of oxygen in the high allitudes.
First Aid Kit
Mirror ( to siginal if in danger to a plane)
Watch (Make sure you are off the side of the mountian before dark)
Compass (check at the beging to see which way you are going so if you get lost you can just turn around)
Poncho ( tunderstorms are unprediciple)
Energy Bar or some sort of high energy or suger food
Lite Wind Breaker
Miscellaneous: email me if you have any questions or concerns

A developed Hot Springs just 5 1/2 miles west of colorful Buena Vista. A small rustic countryside inn nestled in the desert cliff mountainsides overlooks a series of concrete enhanced pools for hot springs users to relax in. 4 tent camping plots, private cabins with their own hot spring pools, a hostel type dorm room, and hotel rooms give visitors a place to settle. The pools are open till midnight, and 24 hr access for those staying on the property. After dark, the pools are clothing optional, while daytime suits are required as kids are present in the pools. Bordered by Cottonwood Creek and the San Isabel National Forest, scenic beauty surrounds the resort. The pools are fed by geo-thermal, gravity-fed mineral spas historically noted for their medicinal and therapeutic qualities which were used for centuries by the Ute indians as a spiritual gathering retrieat. They offer lots of retreats and activities.

Favorite thing: Go whitewater rafting!! The guides and the Arkansas river are wonderful! I had the time of my life.
Fondest memory: We went to CO with 3 other families. At night, the parents would all go out to the bars and us 'children' would do whatever. One night, we took the van to the drive-in movie theater to see Braveheart and Snow White (double feature). I don't think I really watched much of the movie just because I was unable to take my eyes off the sky! As we watched the movie, you could see the silouette of the mountains in the background- Beautiful! And there was also a meteor shower and the stars were Green, Blue, Orange, Yellow, etc. It was sooooo pretty!
