Conundrum Hot Springs

Over the weekend, we packed into Conundrum Hot Springs. We had heard reports of deep snow and impassible creek crossings, but we decided to see how far we could get. Turns out that while the snow was deep in places, it was certainly possible to make it into the springs.

At the trail head the aspen leaves were just coming out.

The conundrum creek valley was hit pretty hard by avalanches over the winter. We crossed numerous run out zones and saw lots of downed trees.

Not too often that you don't have to share the hot springs with anyone else.
