Karen Duquette relaxed
at Buena Vista Spa in Colorado
August 29, 2012

Karen Duquette decided to spend time relaxing at the Buena Vista Spa that is nestled in a high mountain natural ecosystem area of the majestic Collegiate Peaks Range, bordered by Cottonwood Creek and surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest.

Karen took time to soak in Colorado's purest, geothermal, gravity-fed mineral spa, noted for its medicinal and therapeutic value. The springs were used for centuries by the Ute Indians as a spiritual gathering retreat.

This creek can be reached by going around a fence that divides it from the spa area.

There was also a dry steam area, but Karen Duquette forgot to photograph it because she was anxious to just get back into the spa pool and relax. Lee does not like hot spas, so he went for a ride in the car somewhere.
