Rico Hot Springs

Not commercialized, yet simply developed so we can still appreciate being out in nature where the earth is sending forth its hot mineralized water, gurgling to the surface for us to enjoy.

Just a stones throw from the highway and a few steps from the Dolores River we spotted where we thought they should be located and found a few parties of people donning bathing suits in the cool mountain evening air and figured they weren’t likely swimming in the cold Dolores.

Toveli, you can see her face back there in the darkness!

Before we left the hot springs, nearby campers were setting off fireworks.  I silently thanked them for sending them up in celebration of BC Day……British Columbia joining Dominion of Canada in 1871. The sixth province of the Dominion of Canada.
