Geysers and Hot Springs

We had a rest day in San Pedro. Mike and I usually choose not to rest on these days. Mike had decided to try put a road that was on the map. There were not many choices. Nuno, tour guide, and Julie, rider, were at Nuno's bike at the same time we were leaving and as it turns out, they were going to the same place so we went together. We are glad that we went together because I know we had more fun with them than we would have had by ourselves.

We took a dirt road (most of the roads in this town are dirt) to a park that has geysers and hot springs. The most crowded time is in the early morning because the geysers are active then. Since we were there at about noon, we had the whole place to ourselves.












As it turns out there is a little natural pool that is formed from a hot spring. You can get in the pool and enjoy the warm water. No one had come prepared to get in the water but we didn't let this stop us. We just striped down to our skivvies and got in.





This is Nuno. Check out what a beautiful location this was.





Those three heads are Mike, me, and Nuno. The water was pretty hot in some spots and you'd have to move to a cooler spot. Also, if you dug your toes in the sand it would be so hot on your toes it would burn them. We spent about an hour just relaxing in the pool. This was just so much fun. What a memory!

I am just glad that last shot is from far away. I don't need to be scarred for life anymore then I already am at the thought of my sister in her birthday suit in hot springs with another couple.

Stanley it is still scarring for me to think of my sister and Mike in their undies too. But looks like everyone had a blast.
