Yesterday was a beautiful day to spend in a hot spring. My friend Andy, his parents, and another friend joined me. It's always amazing to me to sit comfortably (or even be too hot) in water surrounded by snow. The small bright green plants that are able to grow in the tiny border between the snow and hot water always surprise me too.
On our hike out, we saw 6 or 7 otters fishing and playing on the banks together. I've never seen river otters as big as they were. Somewhere between 5-6 feet from nose to tail. I really enjoyed getting to watch them fish and play in the snow.
