This fantastic Land trust is dedicated to the preservation of natural resources, wildlife habitat, open space, historic and geologic features of the northern San Luis Valley for the enjoyment of current and future generations. The OLT protects a humongous bat colony, hot springs, alternative energy use, and is well known for its high altitude dark skies for astronomy, exposed active geological fault, limestone caves, numerous trails, historic buildings, town sites at an abandoned iron mine, and a working ranch. The OLT is a naturist community (clothing optional) with 24 hour access to the hotsprings when camping or renting their rustic lodging cabins. They limit the number of visitors based on space availability and environmental impact. For current pictures and views … visit their web site, linked above. The entire grounds are clothing optional – while the majority of the guests tend to swim and soak without swimsuits, there is no pressure either way. The OLT welcomes a diverse clientele of couples, singles, and families from all walks of life – children are always welcome, though require supervision. They offer camping and cabins, their indoor lodging have heat and electricity, though there are no telephones, clocks, radios, or tvs in any of the rooms. All of the ponds and pools are outdoors – there are no private pools or hot tubs – there are four natural ponds with temperatures ranging in the 90’s, an 80′ long spring-fed swimming pool (no chlorine) in the high 80’s, and a heated hot pool around 105 degrees. Our visit to this fantastic resort was over the weekend of 11/10-11/11. A must visit for any hot springs or naturalist enthusiast. Rating 5 stars out of 5.

Additional Visit: 1/24-1/25/09. 2/16/17-2/18/17. Excellent visit.

Very relaxing and healing experience as I found a massage therapy centre to fit exactly what I needed. As a fellow massage therapist, its often hard to find someone who can perfectly release your aches and pains, finding the right “sync” within your muscle structure, and provide the relaxation once needs after a cross-country trip from Burning Man in Nevada as I was about to fly off and move to Dublin, Ireland. I had quite a full muscles pulled that summer doing lots of building for the Irish Core Effigy at the Burn, and this pitstop in my travels has destined me to return to Charleston in the near future for many more healing sessions. Reiki, massage, and relaxation all-in-one. I’m even considering utilizing their weight loss and fitness program services in the near future. I couldn’t rate any other massage therapist better than Bill at Charleston Therapeutic Massage. If you’re in Charleston, don’t miss this hotspot for total relaxation and healing. Rating: 5 stars out of 5 ~ Leaf McGowan. Visited October 2011. [rating:5]
