Museum of Northwest Colorado: In hot water

With warmer weather heading our way, many area folks are heading out to the “low country” — generally west of Craig. One unusual Moffat County destination that used to be a year-round hot spot for many locals was Juniper Hot Springs. The springs, about 20 miles southwest of Craig, were used by the Utes and possibly the Fremont people before the first settlers arrived in the late 1800s.
