Let's celebrate an awesome summer of alpine adventure by soaking in the soothing warm waters of Conundrum Hot Springs. The hot springs are a classic backpack near Aspen, andare nestled at the end of a beautiful valley ringed with pretty peaks. It is so much fun to just sit in the hot springs for hours and hours and soak, while gazing at the gorgeous views or sparkling stars overhead. Plus, I have enjoyed some great conversation at the hot springs from all the new and interesting people that I have met there. By going in October there will be a lot fewer people at the springs, and the surrounding peaks will be covered with a gorgeous thin coat of white sugar for magical views.
So here is the plan. Friday night, Oct. 6th, after work, we will drive to the Conundrum trailhead, get some dinner along the way, and camp. Saturday morning, we will backpack 8.5 miles up a nice gentle valley and camp next to the hot springs. Saturday afternoon to evening, and Sunday morning, we will soak and frolick in the hot springs. Sunday afternoon, we will backpack out and drive home.
Boulder people can meet at Mock Realty (825 South Broadway, Boulder, CO) at 6:00 PM and make an initial carpool. We will then drive down to the Wooly Mammoth Park-n-Ride to meet any Denver people at 6:30 PM, form a final carpool, and then head out.
You can call/text me at[masked] if something comes up.
Join us for some hot springs frolicking under the stars!
