Colorado plan for next September

Next September I am taking a small group of clients to go on 6 days long Colorado Tour. We will start in Colorado Springs and go down south-west for a giant loop through Sand Dunes, Alamosa, Pagosa, Durango, four corners, Ouray, Gunnison.  I am really looking forward to it!
One on my favorite things to do in Colorado is to soak in the hot mineral water pool, especially if it’s outside. We will be going to several hot springs pools on our trip, one of them is Sand Dune Pool  in town of Hooper. It is large outdoor pool and family swimming center. Swimming pool, decks, greenhouse lounge, and family picnic area. The “Hooper Pool,” as it is affectionately called by locals, technically is not quite a hot springs, since it is fed by warm water from a 4,400-feet-deep well that delivers water instead of black, gooey oil. While there are over 15 different minerals found in the chemical analysis, the four most abundant minerals in the water are: sodium chloride, potassium sulfate, calcium sulfate, and calcium bicarbonate.
