Leave the regular spa treatments for the pampered city folk. People in Colorado seem to be of much hardier stock. Located in the Maroon Bells–Snowmass Wilderness area, the Conundrum Hot Springs re a series of natural heated pools located some 11,200 feet above sea level. And here's the kicker: They're only accessible via an 8.5-mile hike. But if you can make it, it's worth it. You'll be given the opportunity to soak in the steamy water and take in sweeping views of the magnificent Colorado mountain landscape. And isn't that the best kind of pampering?
