  • Having a wolfdog, having any dog, having any animal companion for that matter is world shaking if you really pay attention. No coach, no professor, no CEO, no guru, no human could teach me half of what Saaya has taught me. I look back and see how different my life was and is now. All the illusions and all the things that were not serving my soul or my journey that just fell away since he came into my life. Things I thought I needed to be happy, things I thought I wanted, paths I thought I needed to be on, ways of thinking that I thought were the right ones all washed away. I have been cracked open raw, pushed to my limits, and forced to find a new way time and time again these last few years. Walking life beside Saaya has shown me more about myself and more about this world than I could ever learn from any other source. I’m sad for people that see their dogs as just dogs. I would not even be a fraction of the woman I am now if that’s how I saw Saaya. I’ve challenged every aspect of my being with him and I am beyond grateful to be blessed with his presence and companionship. His name could not be any more appropriate. Saaya means Shadow in Hindi. And since having this shadow of mine I have been able to face my own inner shadow and do the most important work of all. I could not think of a better person/being/soul to walk through the dark with then him. I hope for some this sparks the desire to watch your four legged companions more closely. What can you learn from them? What are they teaching you about the people and things around you? What are they teaching you about yourself? You may be surprised by what you find. 🌿

  • We all have our favorite Christmas playlists on repeat by now... but is anyone immersed in the Holiday spirit enough to have a Christmas Workout Playlist?? 😜 .
For those next level celebrators, Spotify has some great upbeat Christmas workout playlists this year! So you don’have to pause your cheer (even for a 15 min. High Intensity workout)! 😉 🎄❄️

  • 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.
