My story on worldwide hot springs resorts will be published in Luxury Las Vegas next month. I was reminded of that when I was asked this morning to send an invoice to my editor at the print publication (always a good email to receive when you’re a freelance writer).
Coincidentally this morning, I was organizing a bunch of photos on my hard drive, including those I took while staying at one of the resorts I profiled in my magazine feature: Dunton Hot Springs. This remote, upscale property had been on my radar of dreamy places to visit in Colorado for more than a decade — and I was so delighted to share just a couple of nights there this fall with my family.
Here’s a peek at some of the images I captured during our October stay, just after an unexpected snowfall (including some on which I put funky filters, courtesy of my Olympus PEN E-mini camera):
This former mining camp turned ghost town turned luxury retreat is located in the southwest part of the state: Dolores, Colorado, about a 105-minute drive from Telluride ski resort in the winter (it’s closer to an hour drive in the summer months when a more convenient road is open).
Thank you to Dunton Hot Springs for hosting my family’s weekend stay.
