Let's head north two hours to one of my favorite places - Lava Hot Springs!

This can be a day trip or an overnighter depending on what you want to do.  Please be curtious and give your driver some money for gas.

Meet at the UTA park and ride -Ballpark Station, 1300 S. 180 West, Salt Lake City (it is safe to leave your car there over night).

We will have the opportunity to relax in the hot springs and socialize in the evening.

Bring your own snacks and remember to stay hydrated while you are at the springs.  There is no alcohol allowed at the springs. 

The Blue Moon Bar and Grill has live music every Saturday night.  There is a classic rock band that plays at 9pm.  There is no cover.

It is $7.00 per person for the day.

(It will take about 2.5 hours to drive.)

A hotel people stayed in last time, and really liked was Auro Soma Lava Hotel. Check out the hotel and reserve a room here:http://www.aurasomalava.com

 
PLEASE UN-RSVP IF YOU CANT GO! We Ned to know how many to expect.

Let me know if you have any other questions.


UPDATES: We will for sure meet at Lava at 3:00pm for those of you not meeting us at the carpool. That will give us time to drive there, maybe check in, etc. we will do dinner around 730-8pm.

    I saw through the web site, there are houses that you can rent by the room or entire floor. I would have done that, but now I am locked to a room. Note for next time. Does anyone know if there is skiing or hiking in this area, should I bring my stuff?

    January 31, 2014
