Hot Springs Hike--Abridged Version

Yesterday was amazing!  Sometime this week I'll write a more detailed post about it (and put up some pictures), but I am just so worn out, I think I'll stick with a quick summary for now.  Yesterday we hiked to the hot springs with Matt and Alana, and it was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.  The hike itself was six-and-a-half miles into the canyon.  We left at 7:15 a.m. and reached the hot springs sometime around 10:00.  Once there, we soaked in nature's jacuzzi until about 2:15 in the afternoon.  We hiked the six-and-a-half miles back out of the canyon, and finished our day by going to La Casita for dinner.  Today I'm left with throbbing legs, wobbly knees, a hell-of-a- sunburn, and a big goofy smile plastered on my face from such a great day.  Oh, and I have a picture of a naked man blowing bubbles.  I tried to snap the photo from the backside, but he turned around at the last second, and the camera went click.  Oops. 


  1. Glad you had a good time. I saw the pics that you uploaded on facebook and they look great, I love the one of the red bridge! You're a braver soul than me, or at least in better shape, I could never hike 6 1/2 miles!

  2. 13 miles in one! Good job! Laughing at the thought of the naked dude frontal view pic...

  3. Yeah Shan, it's pretty...graphic. I thought about posting it with a heart covering the tender parts (you know, in honor of Valentine's Day), but decided it probably wasn't a good idea. ;-)

    Kristyn, I'm not in as good as shape as I thought, because this hike crippled me for a full 24 hours afterwards. We're planning on going again in March, so hopefully by then I will have miraculously grown stronger legs.


Thanks for your comment!
