[Part 3 of my road trip chronicles]
I always wanted to experience hot springs but never created the opportunity for myself until this year. I decided I've been living in British Columbia for too long to have an excuse! .
So on my trip I went to Halcyon Hot Springs, Nakusp Hot Springs (lost the pics), and Ainsworth Hot Springs. I soaked up those minerals for 1.5 to 2 hours every day for 3 days in a row and let me tell ya - absorbing those minerals so intensely has a certain detoxifying effect to it. Physically, sure, but emotionally? Oh yeah! You betcha. .
I found myself shedding cleansing tears at night as I drifted off to sleep after the hot springs. I needed it. I welcomed it. I felt it... And I released it. I'm so glad I can feel my feelings without needing to run, numb, or escape them. As a result, I'm not storing my issues in my tissues anymore, I just let them go when they surface. Recovery is a beautiful journey. ✨

We get asked all the time what our favorite national park is—and we’re terrible at giving a straight answer because we’re obsessed with so many of them. But even though, for parks lovers, it’s a crazy hard question, we’re still curious: if you could only visit one national park for the rest of your life (unlimited visits allowed, but only to one park!), which would it be?
