Bagby Hot Springs

thought I'd share some photos of Bagby Hot Springs
one of my favorite outings during our Portland trip
we drove about 2 hours SE
a quiet middle-of-the-week trip
a beautiful drive through mountains
along the most beautiful teal river
after a mile and a half hike through National Forest
we reached the hot springs
water is piped to private hollowed out cedar log tubs
half a roof and half open to the trees, sun and rain
we sat and sat and sat in the hot tub of mineral water
a room full of steam
we left feeling completely refreshed
and wandered back through the forest
for a dreamy drive back
and a night on the town
