Buhl Creek Hot Spring

Here we go again – another Hot Spring simple smile

I picked up Brendan from Emerald Lake and we headed down to Buhl Creek. I’d never been to this spring before, so I was pretty excited.

As always, the directions in the book were 100% spot on, and we found the place all to ourselves. The camp ground, a beautiful green clearing, is about 150meters from the spring, which is on the side of a creek. A storm rolled in late in the afternoon. It gave spectacular skies and very little rain. NICE.

We soaked in the evening, cooked on the open fire then soaked some more. Early in the morning I was soaking once again.

We didn’t see another person for our whole stay. A+ soaking.
