Glenwood has something for everyone!
Glenwood Caverns had millions of years of water carved into Iron Mountain, where today you can tour amazing cave formations and spectacular rooms of caves. Hundreds of years ago, the Ute Indians used the Yampah Vapor Caves to heal their bodies and minds. Now, you can soak in the healing powers of these natural steam filled caves formed by the mineral hot springs that flow through them.
According to legend, the teddy bear was first created at the Hotel Colorado to cheer up Theodore Roosevelt after an unsuccessful day of hunting. Maids presented him with a stuffed bear pieced together with scraps of fine material. Later, when he did bag a bear, his daughter Alyce admired it saying, “I will call it Teddy.” The term caught on and became the name for the popular toy known today.
