Hot spring and cold beer

Had the day off yesterday and did a weather check in the morning.
Holy cow! High of 65! I'm going on a ride.

Lots of pretty fall colors just before I get out of town.



Fresh rain in desert last night means no dust on the road today.





Found several huge burn piles in a logging area that I explored, bon fire?



Thought I would run into mush more snow than this, just found a bit left in the ditch where the sun don't shine.



The lake shore was beautiful and deserted.



End of the road time to lock up my helmet put on my pack and hike to the springs.



High viz moss grows here.



Many birds enjoying the peace.



Found this spring first it was really clean but not quiet hot enough. I must move on to warmer waters.



Hiked across over a little obsidian flow.



Found some artwork along the trail.



This one is nice and steamy! Hot spring!



Cold beer!



mission accomplished!



Hung out soaking watching the eagles and ospreys fish and just relaxed to the sounds of the water for as long as possible.



The sun is sure getting low I had better beat feet back to my bike.



Just a mile back down the trail it had already gotten darker than I had anticipated. Last pic for this report I geared up and hit the dirt toward home.

Thank you! For the last week the temps have been down in the forties it was a treat to have such a warm day. In the desert portion I even had to stop and open my jacket vents.

Here http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newberry_Volcano To get there and back I make about a 130 mile loop ride from my house with only about 25 miles of pavement.

Thumb hot springs and a beer

Where else can you ride a big dirt loop, get off at a mountain lake, take a hike to a lakeside hot spring, get in, put your feet up, watch some of Mother Nature's best work while drinking a cold one undisturbed?

You are definitely NOT in a New York state of mind!

You go for it Girl! The West is the Best!
