After the Underpass show I started the drive south to Breitenbush Hot Springs. Slept in a parking lot that night and got up early and made it to my destination at 7:30am. Spent the next 24 hours soaking and eating and reading and talking to other guests.
|1st stop in Eugene was to Betty's house to visit the Little General|
|and her counterpart - the Gentle Giant|
|Klich had packed me a Philly cheese steak for the road & I ate it at Betty's.|
|Betty and I walked around her hood looking at gardens, Little Free Library's, & persimmon trees.|
|Cougar Hot Springs was cooler than normal due to excessive recent rainfall.|
|stop # 3 was Umpqua Hot Springs and for the 1st time in my life...|
|I stopped and hiked to....|
|Toketee Falls - totally worth it !|
|the largest graffiti on the bench overlooking the falls said SHRED|
The trifecta was accomplished in less than 16 hours.
Breitenbush soak at 5:30am.
Cougar at 1:30pm.
Umpqua soak after dark at 6pm.
|the Narrows were not very impressive|
|this photo doesn't do Confluence Park much justice, but I'm glad I stopped.|
|as soon as I crossed the state line the SUN was out.. Mt Shasta looking good.|
