Since our last hot spring experience didn’t yield much beauty or nature, we decided to check out some hot springs known for their beauty and peaceful atmosphere. It was a really rainy, yucky Saturday. The kind where if you stayed inside and watched movies all day, it would be totally acceptable. I wasn’t going to give in to the bad weather and let it control my day, so I convinced Chris and Anthony and Jeanna that it was the day to go check out the “Hot Pots” off Highway 6 near Provo (about an hour south of Salt Lake).
Our day turned into an adventure! It was perfect. On the way to the hot pots I drove all 5 of us through a rain storm and a snowstorm in Snowflake, who we specifically brought because we’d be driving up and down a mountain road possibly in snow or mud. There’s 2 entrances to these hot pots- one where you drive to the top of the mountain and hike down and another at the bottom where you hike up.
We first drove to the top only to find out that the road was still closed for the season- it was snowing up here, and not raining. We were going to park at the closed sign and hike in but ran into a very cold man who was walking to his truck carrying deer antlers (but no deer). He told us that it was a LONG hike and gave us some confusing directions to the lower entrance.
