  • Winter has finally arrived in the mountains, we decided to enjoy the snow by trekking to these hot springs. I don’t get into the mountains enough in winter, I keep forgetting how peaceful & quiet the winter really is up there. It was refreshing to enjoy this stillness again, welcomed by some fresh snowfall. Winter has it’s special appeal, I am seeking to enjoy it more & more this year. Do you guy’s have any suggestions for unique winter activities to dive into? #LiveYourAdventure @eddiebauer #EBContributor

  • Что почем на Аляске♨️❄️
⠀
🚗 SUV на 5 дней - 150$, плюс бензин - 100$ (галлон 2,39$).
⠀
🏠Дом в Фейрбанксе с 28 ноября-2 декабря - 500$. Делим на две семьи - 250$. Ночь в гостинице в Анкоридже - 58$.
⠀
🥑Продукты - 300$. Готовили мы в основном дома, один раз сходили перед отъездом в бар.
⠀
🐕Катания в собачьей упряжке - 75$ (225$ на троих) на полчаса. Есть за 150$, но уже на час. Нам, честно говоря, хватило и 6 миль, ибо было очень холодно.
⠀
♨️Горячие источники в Chena Hot Spring - 52$ (по 17$ с человека).
⠀
Из зимних активити также на выбор есть:
🦌Визит на ферму северных оленей - 100$.
Прогулка на лыжах, Сноумобил - 70$-120$.
Тур «Северное сияние» - 300$. Мы ездили сами, но ничего не увидели из-за сильной облачности.
🥶Туры на Arctic Circle с ночевкой - от 275$, дневные - от 200$.
⠀
С северным сиянием у нас, конечно, случился облом. Потому что это было главной целью нашего визита. За три дня до нашего приезда - погода сильно изменилась. Так хотелось доче его показать, но увы, в следующий раз. Зато хоть Санту увидели в его официальной резиденции. Но об этом в следующий раз.

  • It’s December, but the year is not over yet. There are still so many hours to go and you are free to make the most of them. Whether it’s making time to be still and reflect, or it’s making time to get out and do the little things you love or start something new, it’s not too late for you. And no matter what is unknown, as long as you are breathing, there is more to come. This doesn’t mean that everything ahead will be easy or perfect, but if you choose to be present with hope, it will be worth it. You will find that even in the grit of things, there will still be room to bloom into who you were meant to be. @morganharpernichols

  • This afternoon we soaked for ages at the wonderful #orvishotsprings under the sky at dusk. As the sun went down 🌅 the stars came out ✨ and we just lay in the pools and got hotter 😊
.
Until I tried the cold plunge pool... 🥶 Seemingly not much warmer than the water in this pic, it literally took my breath away as I submerged into it.
.
Then a few seconds later something weird happened. As I slowly began to control & steady my breath, and I kept still, I suddenly felt REALLY good. My breathing was slow & deep, I was sooo relaxed, and I didn’t feel the cold. Stepping out afterwards felt amazing.
.
Huh. 🤔 .
Those times you hear people banging on about benefits of cold therapy? Maybe not so crazy after all! After that little experience I could absolutely be convinced.
.
No electronics allowed, so make do with this artsy winter pic instead. #hotsprings #orvishotsprings #colorado #heatup #soak #cooldown #coldplunge #coldtherapy #breathe #relax #goodforyou #instagay #instadaily

  • The pale pink suede of a powder seat felt soft as I slid from upright to a comfortable lean, the golden yellow walls of warm vintage sat soft on heavy eyes, as a sun set would behind a mountain landscape, past the cusp of squinting viewing, when the sky fills of worn velvet, of many hues, setting a place from the days endeavours, a moment's breath through the nose and out a sealed lip. Gratitude for which has been, a place to claim onward and upward, paradise bound, this new wealth of knowledge, elevated living. The temple wept, the temple swept, then the temple slept. #words #beauty #peace #yellow #warm #photography #life #hotsprings #music #poetry #create #gratitude #powderroom #paradise #fashion #vintage #photograph #art #writer

別府温泉♨️地獄めぐり

白池→鬼山→かまど→海→鬼石坊主→龍巻→血の池
7つの地獄をめぐって来ました。 「かまど」ではサンタに扮した鬼がお出迎え。99.1度の沸騰泉の「鬼山」は別名ワニ地獄。うじゃうじゃワニが生息する池は危険⚠︎です〜‼︎コバルトブルーが美しい「海」は硫酸鉄によるもの。「鬼石坊主」はその名の通り、灰色の熱泥が坊主頭のようにポコポコと可愛らしい😍1300年前から存在する「血の池」は、酸化鉄や酸化マグネシウムによる赤い熱泥が吹き出し、まさに地獄そのもの‼︎ 熱くてちょっとクサイ(硫黄臭😂ね)蒸気をいっぱい浴びて…温泉気分が盛り上がったところで、鉄輪(かんなわ)温泉市営のむし湯へ。お昼から温泉♨️で手足伸ばして、もう最高❣️ 頭の中のBGMはもちろん…「地獄へ道連れ」(Queen “Another One Bite the Dust”)🎶🎵🎶 #別府温泉#鉄輪温泉#地獄めぐり#大分 #大分観光 #大分旅行#温泉旅行 #別府

  • [宜蘭 梵梵溪溫泉]
這種寒冷的天真的讓人很想去泡個野溪溫泉♨️ 梵梵溫泉其實沒有想像中的容易,自從便橋斷了以後要繞好大一圈才回到梵梵溪。從梵梵溪走到溫泉必須朔非常湍急的溪在走上一段五分鐘的石頭路才回到。對於功課沒做好的我們只能赤著腳做過不過到了溫泉一切都值了。
難度:⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • I absolutely loved this hot spring in the Alvord Desert because you can control the heat and keep it nice and toasty your whole soak! In fact sometimes it got too hot in there which is even better when the weather is below the 20s! We were surprised that there were 3 other small groups here during Thanksgiving and the bad weather but it was still very quiet & private, especially since we picked a campsite way in the back against the playa and were the only ones camped back there. You can camp on the playa for free but when it's wet from rain or snow it isn't advisable to go out there since it gets crazy muddy and your car can get stuck so if you're coming out here and run into bad weather the Alvord Hot Springs is a good alternative to camp at.

You can pay $30 to camp which includes fire ring, access road to the playa, free hot spring soaking at any hour, and free use of the clean (flushing!) bathroom. You can also pay $60 to use one of their bunkhouses instead which is like a metal container with heat & beds. To me it was a bit pricey for a campsite but being able to soak in the springs whenever you wanted, access to a clean bathroom, and use the playa access road at anytime was a plus (also wasn't a ton of options in this weather lol). You can also have a fire at this campground but no open fires are allowed on the playa based on my research. Alternatively you can try to find a free BLM campground or camp on the playa in good weather but still use the springs by paying $8 for day use to soak from 8am-10pm and $5 for use of the playa access road. We did see a free access road near here but it was steeper than the campgrounds access road and with the snow it seemed a little sketchy but we think we'll try using that access next summer when we're back! Have you been to the Alvord Desert?

  • This little remote hot spring in the high desert was one of my favorite experiences of the trip because we were the only ones here and it really felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The snow had been falling since last night so the drive there was a little scary and eerie and we only saw 2 trucks going the opposite direction. We were worried the spring wouldn't be warm enough but it was plenty hot and it was so peaceful soaking in the springs watching the snow fall around us and enjoying the quiet. I love how deep and wide the springs are, the soft squishy bottom, and the large flat rocks to sit on around the sides.

The gravel road is all season but the last bit is a soft dirt path that gets very muddy after rain and is impassable in a car. The snow and ice made it easy enough to drive but I wouldn't go when the snow melts or after rain unless hiking in (but not sure where you would park the car before the access road). There is a BLM campground here with picnic tables, pit toilet, and you can camp for free nearby and enjoy these springs. During good weather you can witness wildlife sightings supposedly and people have seen pronghorn antelope, coyotes, wild horses, rabbits, and deers. We camped at the Alvord Hot Springs because the playa was not safe to drive on with the snow and we only saw rabbits and birds but heard coyotes in the distance. I can't wait to go back to the Alvord Desert next summer to see the place without snow, camp on the playa, stargaze, and do the hiking we missed out on but I will say it was pretty magical with snow.
