One of the best things about hiking in the summer is finding a cold brook or stream to jump in after a long day. While nothing quite matches the sensation you get after ripping off your boots and floating around in a rocky river, the Santa Fe-based company Stone Forest has managed to get pretty close with their Natural Bathtub.
Made by Michael Zimber, a former climber and outdoor guide, this tub allows you to bring that feeling of laying in a stream of water into your own home. Made from a single block of granite or marble (buyer chooses), bathers can hop into 100 gallons of water – whether it is fresh off of a hike, or an equally grueling day at the office. With a weight anywhere between 1,600 and 2,600 pounds dry, you may want to think twice about setting one of these up on your second floor. Prices are available on request. [Purchase]
