Canyon Hot Springs

Oh, how I love hot springs! This privately owned oasis was a treat on a hot, (over 30 C) summer day. First, we had electricity, so we could use the air conditioning – the only time we did on the entire trip. Second, later in the evening, we had a soak in the pools looking up at the surrounding mountains. Third, ice cream. And finally, we watched the Perseids meteor shower. (We did get a few odd looks as we hauled our low-seated chairs out, extended them back, and set them beside the road -- it was the best view of the sky.) It wasn’t a great year as we saw only a about a dozen or so shooting stars, but sitting out on a warm summer evening looking at the universe is never a bad way to end a day.
