On the westbound trip Glenwood Springs is reached just after passing through the beautiful Canon of the Grand River. This is an ideal health resort because of its hot mineral springs - ten great and many small ones. The large springs are estimated to send forth, every minute, 8,000 gallons of boiling water, equaling thirty times the flow of the Hot Springs of Arkansas. Here is situated the Hotel Colorado, one of the most magnificent hostelries in the Rocky Mountain region. Among the big trees, lawns, drives, terraces, etc., is the famous open-air swimming pool, while a quarter of a mile away is the great Vapor Cave.
