One of our most favourite things about our trip to @ritzcarlton #bachelorgulch this past August, besides EVERY aspect of it, was the delicious food! There were so many incredible options on the property for us and Tuna to choose from. They will feed you and your pup really well, and all of the outdoor patios are #petfriendly. If you plan to visit Colorado any time of year, highly recommend #BachelorGulch. For more on this fabulous hotel, visit the link in the bio. #teef #tunapproved
