Today we went on a third snowshoeing adventure. It has been snowing since yesterday evening and there's a beautiful blanket of snow making everything appear sparkling and soft. We took a round about trek through the mountains and Meadows and even a bit uphill on the downhill ski slopes.
It's always amazing how Serene everything is in the snow covered forest. Nothing but the crunch of snow underfoot.
Our next destination was the hot springs of Glenwood Springs. Supposedly, it's the largest outdoor hot springs pool. The larger of the pools contains over 1 million gallons of water. It's so amazing to soak in the pools at 104F while it snows and surrounded by snow covered mountains. Amazing
We're spending New Year's weekend in Glenwood Springs (adjacent to Aspen). It's my first time in Colorado. The people are super nice here. The airport is tiny.
The mountain views are majestic. There's a good layer of snow on everything and it really makes the red mountainscapes pop.
We went snow shoeing and every tree looks like a perfect Christmas tree.
The elevation is a bit tough though - 8000-9000 ft. But it's nothing a little hydration and ibuprofen can't take care of.
The family of long tailed macaques.
We saw really beautiful butterflies.

Staying at Borneo Rainforest Lodge was my favorite part of the trip. I can't get over the feeling of awe when looking up at the primary Jurassic jungle from the dining area / view from my room.
