Hot Springs and Big Skies August 24, 2021
BIG SKY COUNTRY and Day 2 of our long but absolutely breathtaking drive up to Glacier National Park. This countryside makes my soul sing. Everywhere I look there are brilliant blues and rich greens. The sky. The water. The towering Pines and Aspen trees. Eli wanted to try one of the hot springs in Hot Springs, Montana as we drove through, so we made a stop at “Big Medicine” springs. It was an outdoor hot spring with mineral water and it was HOT. You just put $5 in a drop box on the honor system and can go in and soak. These waters are heavy in sulphur, so we wound up smelling a little like rotten eggs, but were definitely relaxed. Ernie and Tatiana opted to drive straight to our campground which is very close to the Glacier National Park, and where there are signs everywhere (including inside the women’s bathroom) warning people that if they leave garbage or food out, the bears love to come in and go through the trash. Yikes.
