When it comes to hiking, I’m a sucker for anything that involves water. Give me a lake or river, or throw in a waterfall, and you can pretty much count on me showing up (and I may have bells on). So much in the desert southwest is dry. It’s beautiful. But there tends to be one humongous lack of water. Thus, I was super excited when my hiking group announced it was heading out to Arizona Hot Springs. Bonus factor: the springs are right next to the Colorado River. And OMG, the Colorado is one beautiful river. Don’t you think?
(We enjoyed a fantastic lunch while sitting above the river, watching the water rush by. And then we got to watch a lady in her canoe work for an hour trying row upstream because she missed her exit.)
