CHENA HOT SPRINGS
Today is Saturday 14th our last day in Fairbanks and we are heading south. Last night we spent in Chena Hot Springs, a beautiful place about 60 miles from Fairbanks where we enjoyed the healing effects of hot mineral water, did some walking around the place and just enjoyed the peacefulness of the resort. After arrival and looking around we discovered a hot spring right by the river where we created our own little pond trying to mix a very hot stream of mineral water and a cold river stream with not the best results....while your but is burning your feet are ice cold but nevertheless it was a good experience enjoying a first mixed drink on our tour. Then we decided to go to main pool that opens at 7 am and closes by midnight and you stay in as much as you please for $15....it can't get much better and you have "your own space" there's no overcrowding . A great place for a weekend getaway. The pool itself has a different temperature at different areas as the springs stream flows through it but over all is very warm about 105F. In the middle of the pool there's a sprinkler creating a sensation of a cold heavy rain as well as cooling the water. You can also get a massage from a streaming water right from the rock. After dusk you find yourself looking at the stars laying on the rock or under a heavy rain colored by fog created every about 15 minutes and green/red lights. With a little imagination you can place yourself in the middle of a horror movie scene. Again, unforgettable memories we are taking from here....after midnight we enjoyed a snack from eFoodsDirect and got well deserved sleep....check our next steps as we progress our expedition! Have a great weekend everyone!
