How to Get There

A perfect oasis anytime of year. This hot spring is lesser known than the near by Jerry Johnson hot springs and is much warmer, making it a local favorite. There is also a small two person sized pool above the main one hidden in the trees for more privacy.

Aspiring writer, I am probably in the rocky mountains or in the red rock deserts. Good days are spent in the sun and good nights are spent under the stars.Trying to make every day an adventure. Missoula living and Colorado grown.
