Halfway Hotsprings Dec 2012

Hike to Halfway Hotsprings, or drive if the road is packed. The hike could be eleven km if you your 4X4 cannot make it. Whatever you decide, the trip is worth it. I actually have not been to the halfway hotsprings but have been to the St.Leon ones a little closer to the highway. Enjoy your exploration and treasures that British Columbia offers! The following pictures were taken by Jesse, my son, when he gathered a bunch of friends who were brave enough to sleep in the cold for a couple of nitghts.
