If you had told me I’d be in a bikini in 14 degrees I would have told you were insane. Well this week it was true. Half soaked in 115 degree water. Half is being snowed on. It was a cool experience to say the least.
Also snow and steam make for some nice photos. I took about thirty, but these three were my favorites. There was only one down side of the hot springs and that was that they were crowded. We went to the Chena Hot Springs right outside of Fairbanks, and while it was busy the activities were so much fun. We went snow mobile riding and on a northern light tour (more on that later).
I learned some interesting things about hot springs:
- If your hair is completely frozen- don’t bend it! It’ll break.
- If it turns your nice silver jewelry bronze- don’t panic! Rub some toothpaste on them, they’ll be good as new.
