Synopsis:

“A warm inland tidal pool in an idyllic mountain valley. The necklace of pools breathes steam in the early morning as if answering the rising sun and the perfect day ahead. Small waterfalls and rock walls separate the ponds of varying temperatures. The sandy pool bottoms comfort sore feet. . . . When the sun tops the mountain ridge, the morning light turns the billowing vapor incandescent. The steamy flow pours, glittering over the pools. The waterfall of mists moves in slow motion in the absolute quiet of morning and vanishes when the sun warms the earth to match the steams hot whispers. Its a show worth rising early to catch.” From pages 2-3, Colorados Hot Springs

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 159-161) and index.
