Perry and Lynn's Hot Springs Adventure

Perry and Lynn's Hot Spring Adventure 

Perry and Lynn were surprised.


Perry and Lynn's son Justin called and said, 'Ryann bought you guys a Christmas present.  When you get to your hotel in Colorado Springs, go down to the lobby at three o'clock and meet a guy who will take you somewhere special.'  Not wanting to be suprised, Lynn said, 'Where am I going and what should I wear?'  Justin said, 'Oh, wear a bathing suit and loose clothes over it.'

So Perry and Lynn arrived at the airport at 1:00PM and raced past the warm 'Steamboat reception of shake the hand of this formar Olympian and here have some oatmeal raisen cookies and hot apple cider' to track down and get the Enterprise rent a car guy to drive them to town to get the rent a car processed cause they are in a hurry to get to the hotel to 'meet the guy'.

They raced into downtown Steamboat where they got checked into the Bristol.  They did a quick change and sure enough, there was the the man ready to go right on time.  They got into a 4 wheel drive van and headed into the mountains.  Their guide was an entrepeneur who shared everything from the lay of the land to the attitudes of dress coded on a magnificent drive up snow covered roads.  The breathtaking views of snow covered trees lent a sureal feel to an already marvelous adventure.

The newness of the adventure wore off quickly as they took off thier cloths and were hit by the December Colorado temperatures.  They went straight for the larger 105 degree pool.  They were practically alone as only about five other guest were even in the place.  The steam rising off the water sheilded them from the few guest that were there.

They tried all the pools.  After an hour, Perry got so hot he went bathing in the ice melted spring nearbly.  The temperature of that water was 45 degrees.  Lynn spent the time leaning back, loosening her shoulders and putting her head under the hot waterfalls.  She even rubbed snow on her shoulders while sitting in the hot springs.  Her hair, her eyebrowws and her eylashes frooze and left little tiny crystals that glowed while sitting in the dusk sun.  She was relaxed.  Perry noted how it removed all the tension from traveling and rather than being 'relaxing now I can't do anything but go to bed', it was more 'relaxing now let's go do something I'm invigorated'.

Once the sun set, the temeratures plummeted.  Two hours of high temperatures in the Hot Springs was enough, so they got out, dried off, checked out the heater cabin, met the guide and set off back to the Bristol refreshed, relaxed and excited about their trip to Steamboat.  Thank you Ryann.
