Bailey Bay Hot Springs Camping Trip

Well the sun was shining, which is rare here in Ketchikan. So my every loving husband and I decided to escape the city and head for the mountains. We took a 2 hour boat ride north of Ketchikan and hiked up to the Bailey Bay hot springs. The hike was quite interesting because we had to hike through a waterfall, which was pretty treacherous and wet. Kenai didn’t even like the waterfall part – she looked at Jeremy like help!!! Pick me up!!! But we made it through without falling and then proceeded to get in a canoe and row back to the hot springs and shelter. Man what a beautiful trip it was, on Tuesday it must have been about 80 degrees. I was even hot and that doesn’t happen unless it is really warm. It was a relaxing time and we enjoyed spending time together away from the rest of the world. Jeremy spent most of the time in the hot springs, with the dog! But he did start to get kind of bored though because there wasn’t anything to kill. Go figure. We got a couple bites on the ole' fly rod but nothing spectacular. I will make sure our next adventure entails killing something so he doesn’t get bored!

Sounds like you're having some fun this summer and not just working! It's super beatiful here in Cornwall, too - actually reminds of Southeast in some ways because of the ocean and the climate, but the landscape is totally different. There are fields and sheep and cows, and lots of stone houses and walls, and gardens everywhere. Really pretty!

Hi, I sneaked your name from another blog and I am enjoying it, especially the pictures.
We have a grandson in law enforcement in Colorado and his wife sends beautiful pictures, too.
Would you belive his name is also Jeremy? He has a history of starting martial arts schools,and I wonder if your Jeremy has any training in martial arts. It has really built our Jeremy up and he is a master.
Your picturs are a delight as well as your commentary. So, I wish you well with your blog.
