Honeymoons - Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado

So the Hill-Smith wedding is drowning in pre planning and with nearly 4 years to go some may think this a little extreme but I can't help it. We have been talking about the honeymoon a lot. We love to travel. We don't like beaches. We love cities. Not too bothered about nightlife. We love nature at its rawest. We don't like camping resorts with cabaret clubs (although I had some great childhood holidays in places like that). For our honeymoon we would like to have an adventure. Drive across the states in a chevy/caddy/mustang? Yes! Diving in the cook Islands and a week in New York? Hell yeahs! Camping in Colorado? Hadn't crossed my mind. At all. Until....Apartment Therapy (one of my top 5 favourite webistes) posted a piece about Dunton Hot Springs. Here's the first 2 paragraphs of their About Dunton bit:
"Dunton Hot Springs is a small and exclusive resort nestled deep in the San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Rockies. This perfectly restored ghost town thrives on contradictions; hand-hewn log cabins exquisitely furnished, a life-worn saloon serving food of startling quality, lung torturing trails followed by pampering massages, sensuous hot springs beneath shimmering snow banks. Free of cell phones, this romantic old mining town still provides high speed wireless internet access and video conferencing to the comforting sound of a tumbling waterfall."
And you can get married there. Mmmm....
