COLORADO, A BARRIER THAT BECAME A GOAL Photograph by George L. Beam NATURE FILLS THIS GIGANTIC BATHTUB WITH HOT WATER Even in subzero weather one may swim in comfort in this pool at Glenwood Springs. It is one of the largest open-air, hot mineral pools in the world. Glenwood, with excellent hotel facilities and mineral baths, has been a Colorado Spa since the railways pushed into the Western Slope country. More than 250 mineral springs are scattered over the State, many of them hot.
