So many amazing hot spring destinations. What gorgeous things hot springs are – beautiful and relaxing. I can’t even pick my favorite because they’re all so good. I want to see their breathtaking and gorgeous views and also enjoy a relaxing warm water. Thanks for this excellent post! 🙂
Passing through we stopped at the Conundrum to take in the views. Right at sunset was amazing. Yes! there are a few steep hills, but it’s great exercise. It was a great hike with a wonderful view. We would definitely do it again. Definitely recommended!
Interesting list, thanks. All these Hot Springs are a must see. I’ve seen Conundrum Hot Springs and it’s indeed so peaceful and beautiful. Pictures turnout amazing. The over looks at the top give you some grand photo ops. It would be great to go there in spring, i think.
I loved reading about your travel adventures. Makes me want to go book a trip to wherever you’re talking about now. I would love to do/visit pretty much all of the ones on the list – except getting near a dolphin. Almost envious of all the time you got to spend in those hot springs. Your travel experiences must have been sooo awesome.

Beautiful.. I haven’t been to any of these hot springs. I really love your shots. The sights from the mountains, trees, flowers and all the different aspects of nature just took my breath away. Time to update the bucket list, perhaps! 😀
