After doing massages recently in McKenzie Bridge, Oregon,
I stopped at a couple of lakes for a walk in the Fall sunshine,
then headed to
for an early evening soak before driving home.
Belknap has two mineral pools,
a Lodge for overnight guests
as well as cabins and camping options
and a lovely garden walk
(photos to be added in a future post).
dressed for the holiday...
...and the grounds still awash with
summer's last blooms.
Drunk with minerals, sunshine,
lake and river views,
skyhigh Doug Firs against the deepening blue skies,
the sunset glow and the entire body soaked in hot water.
