Well Guess what we found here? We went here because we heard that there were warm Springs. We tried to stay at the dock but it was very small and filled so we found a little side cove and anchored and took the dinghy to the dock. We then took the hike to the warm springs. I think Barb liked it!
Notice behind the roaring river. The river water was NOT warm. Guessing just above freezing.
Matt and Tonia joined us and helped us smuggle in some cold beverages to ensure we did not dehydrate.
Barb -- in the true fashion of jumping in freezing water had to go into the river to cool down.
The hike was not hard but the path was ankle deep in mud and full of tree roots and rocks. The hike was well worth it.
Did I mention it was pouring rain?
We all made it back to the dinghy and enjoyed the trip back to the boats.
I just love Tonia in her Alaska Nike's.
