SmartAss


Back last night. We went to a natural Hot Springs in Liard National Park in waaaaaaaay Northern B.C. You trudge in a long planked walk through the forest. It's pitch black, there is nobody there but you (we went in two Mercedes SUVs). You change in freezing little changerooms by flashlight, then you have to walk through to the stairs in flipflops. All covered in a foot of snow. The trees surround the springs, all loaded with snow and ice. And there are no lights anywhere except moonlight, reflected on all the snow. The springs are so hot in places you have to move around. Absolutely amazing. Thought I'd include a pic of some of us warming up afterwards.

What an amazing trip. I'm writing it up today, so it'll run The Star on Saturday. But I have lots of pics and lots of stories.

More later.

Gee Lorraine, I would have waited for the full article next Saturday. Who are your sun tanning buddies?
