Sloquet Hot Spring
The Road Chose Me Volume 2 OUT NOW!!
The Road Chose Me Volume 2: Three years and 54,000 miles around Africa
Always on the lookout for more hot springs, Mike and I camp a night at Sloquet Hot Spring.
We arrive and setup just as the sun is going down. We both freak out a little when the Jeep starts slowly moving backwards while parked on a really steep hill. The strange part is that it’s in first gear and the handbrake is on.
A few tests in the morning show the hill is steep enough to turn over the engine while in reverse.
Good to know.
The hot spring is just as beautiful as I remember; hot water cascades over a waterfall and flows down through a series of pools that start at insanely hot and go all the way down to river level and temperature. Once again we have the spring to ourselves for an evening soak filled with star gazing.
A morning soak is by now a much enjoyed habit.
Mike and I have just visited six undeveloped hot springs in two days! Yep. it’s an addiction
Hey when are you guys gonna hike the WCT already? I’d like to here/read about it!
haha – I’m working on the article right now..
Hey guys, we saw your jeep at Fred Meyers in Astoria, OR. Check out our website http://www.ayearatthewheel.com. If you wanna meet up for coffee email us.
do you think keyhole of sloquet is better, dont have much time.
They are both amazing.. Sloquet is a little easier to get to.
so we are going to camp there do you think sloquet is better comparitivly and will potentially have few people on a thursday night. Because keyhole also has the falls.
Sloquet is very busy during the summer weekend – often the campground is full. Hopefully Thursday night will be quiet for you.
I would guess Keyhole will be quieter, but remember it doesn’t have a great campsite. You can to carry all your stuff down a really steep hill and put your tent anywhere it fits.
We are planing to visit Sloquet Hot Spring soon… Is there any place we can stay over instead of camping?
I don’t know of anywhere you can stay out there, besides camping.
You could make it a long day trip from Vancouver, or Pemberton, but I really recommend camping so you can get the full experience!
I am hoping to drive to Panama from Texas. Any suggestions for a single white female?
You’re going to have the trip of a lifetime. Lots of female backpackers go solo in Central/South, so I don’t see why you can’t. There was a discussion about this a few weeks back on the Facebook PanAm Group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/panamtravelers/ request to join and I’ll add you.
Also, you’ll want to checkout WikiOverland.org for all the logistical information you’ll need per country to get your vehicle around.
Have an awesome time, let me know if you have a blog someplace I can follow along!
