Even before there was a Vacation Dude Ranch here in Creede, Colorado, travelers came. They came to soak in the warm, therapeutic hot springs in Wagon Wheel Gap. They came to experience the majesty of nature. In the 1880’s, the appeal of Wagon Wheel Gap lay in the cool summers, warm waters, and stunning landscape. The same is true today.

It does something to the soul to spend time in the Southern Rockies. It’s hard to explain, but if you’ve been here, you know what we mean.
