Arizona Hot Springs

crew-hot-springs

Last week we did a hike in/boat out trip to the Arizona Hot Springs.

DSC01003

This is a great, 3.25-mile hike to hot springs near the Colorado River. The route runs down a deep, narrow, geologically interesting canyon for 2.75 miles to the Colorado River, turns to run downstream for 0.5 miles to the next major canyon, and ascends that canyon for about 5 minutes to a 20-ft waterfall and a ladder. Climbing the ladder brings hikers to the hot springs. the water temp is 110 F at its source, decreasing as it flows down the canyon. At the waterfall about 95 F.

One side note; I was awakened around 6:18 a.m. by a small 2.0 earthquake 8km E of Henderson, Nevada.

What a great way to enjoy the Canyon.

Life experiences

You can manage this.

This is the view out my backdoor this morning while I was headed to church today and I thought to myself…”We never see the entire stretch of the road from any one point. Life is not a long, straight path – the unfamiliar path clearly visible – it is a winding and undulating lane. ‘Come on,’ Life seems to say, showing us just one little bit of the track, ‘you can manage this – and now this – and now this again!’ –#weseethroughaglassdarkly.
