When we finally found the trailhead we went on a spectacular hour hike following a "hot river". My last river crossing was in Patagonia where the water was around 20F. So much nicer when the water is 40F.....!
The whole valley filled with geothermal plumes of steam, water and even mud!
A few of the locals. If the ground was 40F where I lived, I would spend a lot of time sitting down too!
Another valley shot, very cool...or warm....
The end of the trail for us - a hot river! And what better to do in a hot river than.....
...chat to strange blokes in speedos! The water was really relaxing, we ate lunch then jumped right in for a good hour soak, so nice!
Our trusty steed for the day!
After Nicole kindly drove me around the "Golden Circle". Which included the quite spectacular Gullfoss waterfall.
