We took a short drive down to Daniels Ranch early this morning. We stopped to enjoy the view of the Rio Grande and checked out where the Hot Springs Trail ends. Now after coffee and breakfast, we headed to #2 Hot Springs Historic Walk trail. We had to drive in on a dirt road and then take a very narrow winding road ½ mile into where the trailhead was. We took a short hike about 1 mile round trip to the Hot Springs. They were right along the Rio Grande. I headed back to the truck and John continued on back to Daniels Ranch about a 3 mile hike. It does have up and down elevation so it took him some time.
I headed back to Daniels Ranch and did some reading under a nice shade tree with shade. John finished his hike and we went home to do some indoor reading for a couple hours during the heat of the day. We did get a rainstorm with thunder and lightning for a little while but then it was gone and it’s still hot, around 108 degrees. We are leaving tomorrow so we do have a few projects to get done today.
