There are several hot springs below Hoover Dam on the Colorado River recently designated as the Black Canyon National Water Trail. Some areas can done by land, some can be done by water and some can be done by both. These include areas like Suana Cave, Heated Cove, Gold Strike Hot Springs (Nevada Hot Springs), Lone Palm, Boy Scout Hot Springs, Moonscape Hot Springs and Ringbolt Hot Springs (Arizona Hot Springs)

Some very kind people that I met today at Arizona Hot Springs. Jennifer, Jim and Alex.

Andrew was on the trail early last night and ended up sleeping there until he had enough light to make it down to the hot springs.

Recently united couple. Congratulations! Thanks for sharing the floating fruit basket.

October 22, 2015 - Gold Strike Canyon


This a view of the river from sauna cave. The water is low enough in the morning to walk over to the cave without swimming.

I met some really nice people kayaking. This is Amber and Lance, the leaders from Prescott, AZ.

They had set up camp near the bottom of Gold Strike Canyon. Nothing like camping in a beautiful area only to wake up to an endless warm shower.

A couple out enjoying the beautiful day by hiking Gold Strike Canyon.

Richard was kayaking with Amber and Lance.

Jamie from Roswell, GA, also kayaking with Amber and Lance. Dave was also with them but did not capture a picture.
