Hot Springs Out Yonder

I love hot springs! I got a wild hair a few weeks ago and took off down the road to my favorite, natural hot springs in Ridgeway. Clothing optional.

 

There are many streams, mountains, valleys, and mountains to travel through to get to my destination.

I travel through my old hometowns and into places where I have fond memories of people and places.

As the weather does what it does, I embrace it and know it won’t make a difference to how much I enjoy my soak.

If you go, be assured the fences keep this a private and secure soaking resort.

No cameras allowed, so no photos of my 4-hour soak. There are rooms to rent, but I chose to head back north for a treat and cup-a-java in Ridgeway.

Then, I made arrangements to visit old friends in Delta for dinner and a night of rest before heading home. On my way the weather added more excitement!

About Mary Russell

I thrive when I'm learning, traveling, interacting with the natural world and others, and spending time alone wandering, reading, and watching films.
