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

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.
