Gila Hot Springs

10/18 – For a fantastic finish to our Nero Day, we went for a dip in the Gila Hot Springs and then to dinner.  At the hot springs there was some beautiful sculptures made from driftwood and found objects. It was an enchanting place.  And, our tour guide Esther had invivted us over to her and her husband’s trailer for a home-cooked meal.  It was the first home-cooked food we’d had since Yellowstone. Ester whipped up a scrupmtious vegetarian meal of lentils, veggies, wild rice, fresh salad from the garden, deviled eggs and more. It was great chatting with them about straw bail homes, York, wolves, and art. In addition to leading tours of the Cliff Dwellings, Esther paints beautiful oil portraits.  After one more dip in the steaming hot springs by the light of the moon, it was time for bed.
