We certainly were surprised at how wonderful this adventure was--
On the way to the spring fed spa....
Looks aren't everything, take our word on this--
The metal pipe used as a plug, it is moved from the front to back of the tub, to fill & to empty.
The photo above shows the outtake section of the tub, the photo below is of the intake.
This is one of about 10 or 12 tubs, which operate in a very simple manner, much like the Roman Baths. It worked then, as it works now. The after effects on a person's skin from soaking in these minerals is better than anything that can be purchased for skin care today.
The hanging moss on these trees, are so gracefully beautiful, I could barely take my eyes off of them, as you can tell from this perfect seat with a view.
A uniquely placed garden seat, arranged with stone, much of it consisting from lava flows. A main aspect of this region's base is from past volcanos.
We left Sonoma yesterday in search of Verchy Springs, Ukiah, California. Our new GPS, a wonderful gift from our family, for our anniversary, which my husband named Greta, got us turned around only once. It kept telling us to-- "go straight, go straight", but we could not heed, as the road we were instructed to travel on was closed with a very established chain linked gate. It was an oye, but we got through it, yes, we asked for directions, & we most definitely arrived as planned.
