San Antonio Hot Springs

This involves a hike of about 5 miles in each direction with a moderate slope uphill on the way to the springs.  We'll hike at a moderate to moderate plus pace. Temperatures should be in the 50s so the springs should feel nice but we won't freeze when we get out.  

Our timing should be such that we can watch the sunset while soaking and then hike out by moonlight (about half moon which will be close to directly overhead).  

We can stop for dinner in La Cueva or Jemez Springs if the group wants to.

Bring a headlamp or flashlight with fresh batteries.

Be aware that there is often nudity at the springs.  I wear a suit in the springs but usually take it off and dress in dry clothes afterward.  I warn people so they can look the other way.  I'll try to remember to bring a tarp which can be held up as a dressing screen.

Bring food and drink if you want but no glass unless it is well wrapped in cushioning material to prevent accidental breakage.

    The last time we hiked out by moonlight, it was a really magical experience. Made it worth the late visit. Hopefully, it will be this time, as well.

      Full moon nights are not that good because it takes a few hours for the moon to get up high enough to be seen over the ridge line and the trees. A couple of days before the full moon is better.
