Glenwood Springs

Ivan and I checked out of Beaver Village Lodge at 11:30 am on April 9, 2010.  We started driving towards Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

We stopped at Vail, Colorado for lunch at 1:20 pm.  We walked to Up the Creek.  We sat down inside the restaurant right by the window.  There’s a nice view of the creek.  Ivan had a vegetarian sandwich with french onion soup.  I had a tasty grilled chicken sandwich with avocado.

I popped inside a few souvenir shops.  I found a souvenir for my dad there. 

I started driving.  We passed through the beautiful Glenwood Canyon. There’s huge rocks all around the highway that are covered with snow.  How amazing!  A few weeks ago, rocks that were 1 mile long fell from Glenwood Canyon.  So, I was a bit anxious to get out of the area.  I didn’t want any rocks to fall on us.  That would be scary!  We passed a place called No Name


I guess nobody showed up to the meeting when they wanted to pick a name.  So, No Name was written down.

We arrived at the hotel at 4:12 pm.  We checked in to the Frontier Lodge.  We used the internet and watched tv.

Ivan drove to Rib City Grill.  Ivan and I shared the tasty catfish dinner special which came with two sides of salad and corn.


We got two big pieces of fried catfish filets.  We also got the 1/2 chicken meal with coleslaw and applesauce.  It was good food.

Ivan drove us to the Glenwood Hot Springs.  We got changed into our swimsuits and then went outside.  We passed the therapy pool.  We weren’t sure what that meant.  So, we walked into the other pool.  It wasn’t that hot.  So, we went inside the therapy pool.  It was really hot in there.  The other pool is just a regular swimming pool and it’s much bigger.  Unfortunately, there was no places to sit, except for the steps. There were no free floaties to use.  I did float around on my back for awhile since the water has salt in it, it makes you float.  I like chilling in the hot water, but I can’t stay in too long since I start sweating. We stayed for an hour and then drove back to the hotel.
