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.
