Gateway to

Adventure

T

It appears to be in the middle of nowhere, but that’s the point: Gateway Canyons Resort, on Colorado’s Western Slope, has everything one could ever need for an exciting, luxurious escape

­B y Erin English

ravelers choosing a getaway often tend to search out luxe resort towns—beautiful places with an array of shopping, dining and activity choices. But they miss out when they don’t consider another option: a self-contained resort in the middle of nowhere that can provide an escape away from everywhere. Gateway Canyons Resort, nestled among red rock formations on the Colorado-Utah border, offers adventure that extends well beyond its indulgent spa treatments, sparkling pool and quiet spots to sit and take in delicious canyon breezes. Education is part of that adventure, with a wide range of talks, tours, workshops and programs available to guests on topics ranging from paleontology to photography. With surrounding lands rich in natural history, visitors are encouraged to explore them, whether on foot, by ATV or a high-end automobile, or in a private helicopter. Days at the resort are ripe with possibility; even a full week may not be long enough to take in the extensive list of activities. COLORADOHOMESMAG.COM
