For Doug’s birthday this year we were going to take a trip down to Denver, but unfortunately that trip got canceled at the last minute…so, we were left with a free weekend and weren’t sure what to do!
We ended up taking a weekend trip to White Sulphur Springs.
Here is a link to the website for the “Spa Hot Spring” motel, which is where we stayed. http://www.spahotsprings.com/
It’s an old school motel with external doors. It was clean though and the people were very nice.
I think the springs are very busy in the winter during ski season, and in the summer when all the tourists are in town visiting Yellowstone. Luckily, we were there at a bridge time, and the town and springs were super quiet.
It was a very nice quiet weekend – we walked around and ate at a few restaurants, soaked in the springs at least twice a day, walked Brodie, and read books.
A word of caution, the sulphur in the springs turned Doug’s silver ring green! We have been to several other hot springs and had never experienced this before! We had to do some work when we got back into town to get his ring back to the right color.
Here’s what the springs looked like…
Doug ate more than beer and ice cream. It wasn’t “heart healthy” or anything…But it was filling and greasy which is all you can really ask for. Courtesy of Dory’s Diner.
