23: Visit to Glenwood Springs, Colorado | On September 26, Abdul-Baha traveled from Denver to Glenwood Springs and took rooms at the Hotel Colorado. After morning prayers and tea Abdul-Baha and His companions strolled around the beautiful grounds, surrounded by towering mountains. Then they went to the bath houses and bathed in the hot springs water. Abdu'l-Baha said, "We have been in many places during this journey but we had no time to see the sights. We had not even a moments rest. Today, however, we have had a little respite." As they came out and looked at the river and mountains, Abdu'l-Baha said, "May God have mercy on the tyrants who kept the Blessed Beauty in prison for forty years. Such scenes were loved by Him." | Kathryn Hogenson Author of "Lighting the Western Sky"
