Most People Don’t Know There’s A Fountain Of Youth Hiding Deep In Denver’s Woods

Have you been feeling a little bit under the weather? Or maybe you are like me and feel old and tired (which I blame on having both a toddler and 6-month-old)? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? The cure to all of the above may actually be found in this fountain of youth-esque spring that is located just minutes from Denver:

Located outside of Black Hawk within the beautiful Arapaho National Forest lies Uncle Charlie’s Ranch; a non-traditional ranch that offers camping, therapeutic hot springs, and — most importantly — water that is thought to be some of the purest in the world.

As per Uncle Charlie’s website, “The Wideawake spring is guaranteed to have the purest water from an ancient source dated at approximately 30,000 years old. The purest water, untouched by radiation, acid rain, nuclear fallout and trace minute water pollutants that exist in 90% of the world’s water resources. The combination of age and purity results in water that has not been subjected to any impurities created by man.” What does ingesting incredibly pure water do? During an interview with Bella Spark, Uncle Charlie (or Charlie Morgan) says that his water “takes your pain away –- sunburn, digestive problems, chronic pain from illness or car accidents, whatever is bothering you; it takes the pain right away. It’s healed my chronic health problems and given me so much more energy.” I’ll drink to that, Uncle Charlie!

Uncle Charlie’s Ranch is located at 2295 Missouri Gulch Rd in Black Hawk. To visit the Ranch, order water (beginning at $5/gallon), or to find out more information, please visit Uncle Charlie’s website.
