What is a Yurt, and Why Would You Want to Rent One in Colorado?
Two years ago I had never heard of a yurt. What exactly are they? According to fieldmag.com:
Somewhere between a tent and a prefab cabin, these bad boys are built using ancient techniques, handed down through generations of nomadic tribes. Built to withstand extreme climates, portable, and spacious, they may just be the unsung hero of outdoor accommodations.
Out of all the camping options, why would you want to rent a yurt? Fieldmag.com adds, "Yurts are circular structures that are assembled much like a tent. They are sturdy shelters that work well in extreme weather conditions. These structures are usually constructed from all-natural material, and thus their construction has a small carbon footprint." Okay, that works. For those of us in Colorado who aren't exactly camping enthusiasts, a yurt might be the perfect fit.
